Hello, my name is Dieter and I'm living in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany. We own a very nice house at the hill (looking south), in walking distance of the city center/ railway station etc. The property has some very beautiful locations: a small castle, some historic caves, wonderful views down to the city. We also have a swimming pool (in summer months, till September).
The property is 10.000 m² big and due to heavy work load in our company we would need someone that loves to help in the garden, cutting bushes and trees, planting new plants, etc.. Additionally you may (only if you want..) take care of our 3 horses that are living in a place 5 km away. Also we do have 3 kid (all girls, 10, 12 and 16 years old) that need some teaching/ support for school topics (mainly mathematics and english).
Additionally we would need some help in our house, throwing away stuff and reorganizing some places...
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We expect you to be relatively close to our family, however, you would live in your own small apartment.
If you decide to help us, you may have the following benefits:

Improve gardening skills, improve teaching skills.

Just 100 m away: beach volleyball fields, climbing hall, etc.
Learn from our business experiences - in the board of management of a big company/ owning and running a small company.
If you want, once in a while you may also work in our company. We are running an event management agency and always need people at fairs, company events etc. In this case, we would pay the job as we pay everyone that works there.
