CURRENT AVAILABILITY: NOW TO 16TH MARCH, 4TH APRIL ON WARDS :-)
Hi, we are a young, busy family of 6 (hubby & I are both 31). We live in a suburb called Gilston on the Gold Coast. Approx 20m drive to Surfers Paradise & 10/15mins drive to both of Gold Coast’s major shopping centres. We are also close access to many bush walking tracks. It is not uncommon to see kangaroos and other wildlife roaming within our newly developed estate. We live in very close proximity to public transport, shopping centres and medical services. We live in a newly built 5 bedroom home with a large swimming pool and grassed yard. We have 4 vibrant children (12, 10, 9 & 6). 3 are biologically ours & we are foster parents to our niece who is 10. All children attend a private school full time - 12 year old girl/ 10 year old girl, 9 year old boy & 6 year old girl. My husband travels for work & I work from home (approx 30 hrs p/w). We are a very open & honest family with quite a hectic schedule.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
A home away from home :-)
Will be approx 20-25 hours per week. There may be the odd date night that we would ask you to cover. Any extra extra hours would be compensated by reduced home duties or pocket money.
Will include but not limited to..helping with kids in afternoons (bus pickups, homework, assist kids with their chores & room tidies, dinner prep), help with household jobs during day: bathrooms, spot cleaning, dusting, cleaning glass/mirrors, vacuum & mopping, general housekeeping, folding, taking out rubbish, changing sheets, keeping kids toys tidy (inside & outside), child minding, cleaning out car, etc. Pretty much helping me keep the house running.
Approx Mon-Fri would be 7-9am then 4:30-7:30pm so plenty of time to explore the Gold Coast, etc. Flexibility on both sides is required as schedules and kids extra curricular activities vary daily.
THE RIGHT PERSON
We require a very independent person who can complete tasks with minimal guidance. Must have a great eye for detail & be super time efficient. Due to the busyness of our schedules we need someone who can comfortably speak English and who, if required, can drive a large vehicle well. Due to foster care regulations, unfortunately we can only take female assistance. Sorry.
Please email with any questions.
WHAT WE ARE OFFERING:
In return we are offering full board (own private room), lockable bathroom (shared with kids), unlimited internet access, public transport card & 3 meals per day. You will have full access to the pool & can accompany us on family activities if wanted. Full laundry access & we also supply all linen, etc.
