Hi, we are a family of 6, Dad-Harley, Mum-Beks and 4 kids - 10, 8, 5 and 3.
We live in a small town, Mossburn, in Northern Southland.
We have numerous pet animals - chickens, pig, lambs, dogs and cats.
Beks is training as an Early Childcare Teacher and works in Lumsden 3 days a week and Harley works on a sheep farm 5 minutes outside Mossburn. The older girls attend the local primary school in Lumsden while the youngest boy attends preschool 3 days a week.
We are looking for someone (preferably female with a drivers license) to be a part of our family for around 5-6 weeks mid June to mid July to help look after the kids and help with general housework and domestic duties while Beks is completing a 5 week placement as part of her study. This would involve getting the girls ready for school in the mornings, taking the youngest to and from preschool 2-3 days a week, taking the kids to any after school activities, housework and cleaning, some cooking and gardening, and helping look after the animals.
You would get weekends off, accommodation (in the house), wifi and meals provided in exchange for work. There may be some pocket money depending on the hours of help required. (We can negotiate this)
We would also consider having come and stay with us for part of the 5 weeks if we can't find someone for the whole time.
