  • 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 and not only do I miss traveling but I'd love to give back
    I am wanting some help in the home, mainly raw meal preparation, childcare and keeping the home organised 4-5 days per week

    ********PLEASE READ FIRST :
    *females only
    *vegetarian or vegan volunteers
    *21 years +
    **Please do not write if you are not naturally a clean person, we need not just tidy but CLEAN volunteers
    ALSO if you can only cook rice, potatoes and pasta, please do not write. We eat RAW and FRESH meals, so alot of salads
    **We have a 3 day trial period

    Happy to pick up/drop off to the airport, train station etc if available. Arrival preferred FRIDAY or SATURDAY and ideally afternoon/early evening but can be flexible

    ESSENTIAL must haves (please read carefully) :
    - Plenty of energy and patience for my 7yo energetic, outdoors child, FIRM but kind, can interact well with children
    - Initiative and common sense, CLEAN and tidy, experience with managing a home is an absolute must (previous nanny/aupair experience or even just experience looking after your own home)
    - Comfortable with animals
    - Confidence to prepare RAW/fresh light vegetarian meals breakfast/lunch/dinner (for school and work)
    - Non smoker and drug free
    - A positive attitude, happy to become part of our little family and not a stranger in our home

    Our ideal volunteer is a strong, kind and outgoing woman who is confident, definitely not shy and knows how to cook healthy

    When writing, please include your birth date and preferred dates of stay

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
