  • Description

    Description

    We have recently ended our own travels and moved to Perth and would love to do some occasional hosting as we were once volunteers
    I am wanting some help in the home, mainly cooking, childcare and keeping the home organised 4-5 days per week.
    *Vegetarian/vegan volunteers only

    Taking enquiries for December onwards - couples and families welcome to apply though extra hours of help may be required

    Happy to pick you up from the airport, train station etc if available. Arrival on a Fri/Sat/Sunday only


    Duties include :

    Morning:
    - prepare healthy breakfast and pack lunches for myself and son, help my son get ready and take to school (finished by 0900 - Mon-Thu)
    - manage the house, keep clean & tidy (mainly laundry and kitchen)

    Middle of the day, you do as you please

    Afternoon/Evening:
    - pickup from school (Mon-Wed)
    - help with homework/keep entertained after school eg skate park, beach, pool..
    - prepare healthy dinner

    *During school holidays, duties would involve full day childcare Mon-Wed
    *Every second Sunday will require full day of childcare
    Friday/Saturday off one week
    Saturday/Sunday off other week


    Essential must haves :
    - Respect and patience for my 7yo son, firm but kind
    - Initiative and common sense, experience with looking after a home, clean and tidy
    - Comfortable with animals
    - Most importantly, confidence to prepare fresh light vegetarian meals breakfast/lunches (for school and work)/dinner
    - No smokers and no drugs
    - Childcare/elderly/disability experience


    When writing, please include birthday and preferred dates of stay
    **During my days of work it is busy and sometimes I am not home until evening and am tired so you'll need to be ok with this as I am unable to keep you entertained each day unfortunately
    **You are free to find paid work. That's not a problem. If you are a couple, I'm happy for one to help me while the other is doing paid work, as long as I am receiving the help I need


    Looking forward to hearing from you :)

    Come and experience life with a young gypsy family (29yo mum, 7yo son) in sunny Perth, that have a passion for travel as well. I have plenty of tips and travel advice for the new travelers!
    Happy to help/recommend setting up of bank account, tax file number, superannuation fund (3 most important things to begin your working holiday in Australia) I can help with finding paid cash work and help with any travel advice
    You'll have plenty of time to explore, happy for you to go away on your days off and come back
    Practice your English with us, we have seen huge improvements from some of our longer stay volunteers
