  • Description


    We're Thomas & Jessie, a married couple in our 30's with three little kids Ollie (4), Christian (3), and Alaina (1.5). Thomas runs a tour business from home while Jessie's in charge of everything else. We were lucky enough to live between Los Angeles and Melbourne, before Covid/Kids anyway, and our lives are anything but conventional (we've traveled the world working from our laptops).

    We urgently need 3 amazing helpers to do gardening, cleaning, painting, and one helper who'd be a great babysitter. You MUST be willing to follow instructions, work hard (fast), be clean, respectful, and detail-oriented.

    You'll live in your own separate house with the other helpers atWanneroo in Perth Western Australia. It's a 4-acre property with plenty of space, beautiful nature, close to public transport and we can even help you out with buying or renting a cheap car.

    Each week we provide 7 meals, plus healthy juices and protein shakes. Your house has a full kitchen and even a large vegetable garden.

    Please only apply if you have read our description and are a good match, please include a link to your social media to show you've read this message completely :-)

    We are into breakfast smoothies and nutritious but time-efficient meals, we'll show you how to automate your cooking to make it easy to eat healthy without spending a lot of time.

    We've explored the world on a budget and can offer insights into how you can do the same, our favorite place is actually a tiny beach in the Whitsunday Islands where we'd go camping for weeks at a time. We can tell you our trick to booking this private island for just $60 a night!

    Break free from the "9 to 5" and learn what it's like to be your own boss, designing a lifestyle that suits you. We've done it and can show you how.
