We are a Swiss-Colombian family with two kids (4yo + newborn) living in the beautiful city of Medellin. We're looking for someone to help us in the household, especially cooking up healthy (e.g. vegetarian) and delicious dishes. We're not a large household but there's always something to do, like cleaning, washing the dishes etc. so we're looking for a person that doesn't need a to do list but is rather proactive and sees what can be done to help simplify our lifes ;-)
We are looking for a Workawayer who is fluent in English (native or otherwise proficient), German is a plus, and has a friendly personality, who is looking to spend time with a family and two little kids which can sometimes be a bit noisy, chaotic but fun :-)
If there is time besides your help in the household, and you have relevant experience, we can find out together how else you could help us.
Minimum length is 1.5 months but ideally we're looking for a longer term engagement (3-4 months). We look forward to your messages! :-)

Help in the house
We are a Swiss-Colombian couple with 2 kids (4yo + a newborn). Our 4yo son is growing up bilingual and we try to teach him to become an open-minded and down-to-earth person. This includes exposing him to different cultures and languages. Sharing our home and meals with our guests is a great way to do that. This benefits our guest as much as our children as we are happy to share stories, give advice on things to do in Medellin etc.
The main part of this help involves cooking, preparing healthy (e.g. vegetarian) lunch during weekdays, as well as general help in the household. If you like children, you could involve our 4 yo son in the preparation, he likes to cook. And my wife is interested to learn new recipes and techniques as well.
We like to try new food and menus, so you can be creative in the kitchen :-)
And as life with a small boy and a newborn babygirl gets pretty busy, your flexibility and readiness to help with general chores such as cleaning the dishes, swiping the floor, watering the plants etc. is of course appreciated. We need someone who sees where help is needed and doesn't need to be told.
You will be sharing time with us as a family and we will be happy to welcome you as an addition!
