  • Description


    We are looking for workawayers to help with our Dublin project immediately

    We are renovating our 150 year old house in Dublin city centre and need help with the project (this involves lifting and material handling, digging and clearing debris, assisting contractors (i.e. craft workers, electricians, painters) as needed. Please only apply if you have experience in construction and/or painting/decorating or carpentry especially!

    My husband is a film-maker and I run a digital agency, our children are 15 and 12, and we have travelled extensively, living in Africa, the US, Europe and now back in Ireland for the past ten years.

    Let me know ASAP if you are interested and we can arrange to speak.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are always looking to share what we know and have learnt on our journey through life, and learn from others, and we see the opportunity of hosting workawayers as a really valuable cultural and work exchange - so, lots to learn.... Over the past 6 months we designed and constructed a 25m sq. Timber frame cabin with help from workaways and had a fantastic experience. We even went on to employ one of the workaways who stayed with us as a construction worker for another project.
