  • Description


    We are two in the household, I'm Shane, and I'm 33 years old. I work as a sales and marketing manager. Jesper is 56, he is an engineer, and has his own company. We are very busy with our work every day, that's why we would like to have some help. The helper should be expected to help around 4-5 hours per day, and 5 days per week, you will have your weekend off.

    For us, to have a work away stay with us is not only about the work you do, in general, the workload is not heavy.
    What is more important is the social interaction between us, we would like to know you as a person, and the cultural perspective. Of course, we are very happy to show you the different perspective about Denmark as well.


    Warehouse move:

    As we are cancelled our rental for the warehouse, we need some help with moving things and throw things to the recycling centre.

    Dog task:

    We have a dog (Shih Tzu) in the house that needs to be taken care of, she is 10 years old, and only has one eye.
    We would like you to take care of the dog if both of us are not home. (That does not happen often.)

    We will take the sailboat out of the water soon, there would need some basic cleaning on the bottom side.

    Other tasks:
    Some basic maintenance in the house. Tidy up and vacuum.
    Making food.
    We have a cleaning lady who comes to do the thorough clean-up around every two weeks.

    We will provide you with some basic food that we normally eat.
    We normally make dinner at home, if we make food, we can eat together, we will expect you to help out with tidying up.
    If there's some especially food you would like to eat, you have to buy it yourself.

    Personal preference: We would prefer not to have vegans.

    You will have your own room outside, and we would expect to tidy it up every now and then. If you are a messy person, then sorry, maybe you are not the right one.

    As I have to leave the house very early, I need someone to take care my dog, walk her in the morning and give her food.
    There is not housework every day, but vacuum twice a week would be nice.
    It would be nice if you can make food sometimes, but not necessary, I enjoy cooking! I can probably teach you some good Chinese dishes.
    We would like to get the sail boat out of the water latest in October, we need some help with cleaning the boat and also paint the body, so it will not get rusty next year.
    Yes, there's also some garden work, but not much.
