  • Description


    Hi there,

    We are a family four (soon to be five!) living in Cumbalum NSW, which is a 25 min drive from Byron Bay.

    I (Jen - mum) am looking for someone to help around the house and with the kids to take the pressure off me when our baby comes. We have two boys (Spike, nearly 6 years' old and Scout who is 4.5 years) and our baby girl is due early January 2021. I have my own online business which I run from home and will need to continue working after our baby arrives.

    We are looking for a female who is excellent with kids. Someone with great experience in babysitting/nannying/au pairing and credible references. And preferably trained in childcare and/or first aid. We want someone who is warm, confident and loves to have fun and engage with kids. We are looking for someone respectful and responsible.

    Duties will include helping with the kids, housework and some cooking. The hours will be flexible and we can discuss what works best.

    We're a friendly and welcoming family and have had 3 Workawayers stay with us before. We all got along really well and are still in touch with them. We also have a gorgeous rescue dog (Sasha) who is the sweetest and most gentle girl!

    We're originally from South Africa but have lived in Australia for 8 years. Were a healthy, active family. We don't drink or smoke.

    Please send us a message if you're interested.
    Jen :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a South African family who have immigrated to Australia so you will get to experience two cultures by coming to our house! We are English first language. Myself and Jeff have done a fair bit of travel ourselves (before babies!) and we are interested in foreign cultures. Jeff works for Fliteboard (a hydrofoil surfboard company) and loves outdoor sporty things, he is also training to be a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. I used to be a lawyer and now work as a Life & Sobriety Coach.
