  • Description


    We are a friendly family of 4. We moved from Belgium to Portugal for the sunshine. We both have to watch our kids 24/7 so we can use a little help around with the kids. We own one kid-friendly dog and three cats. Some light work in the house might also be needed occasionally. We require proof that you can work with children in a playful and educational way (teaching them English for example). We are both busy parents, hence we like to have only one person, non-smoker, that has respect for the house you are staying in. Especially the bathroom and the kitchen need to be clean. We have fiber internet which is a rare find around here. We like motivated people with eye for detail that put in the effort so there is a win-win situation. If you are interested, please email us showing you have read our requirements and tell us why you specifically chose us for your workaway.
