  • Description


    My partner and I own and run a small B&B which is busy in the summer, not so busy in the winter. That said, we do need help all year round with work in the house which includes a good amount of cleaning, childcare, housesitting, some gardening and perhaps some general maintenance/DIY/project work. In the winter you will only be helping in the house and not in our business.

    My partner has three daughters so need someone responsible and mature who we are happy leave them with for a couple of hours if we need to go out. A good level of spoken English will be required.

    Native Spanish speakers are preferred as we want the children to keep speaking Spanish (they were all born there) but open to any nationality.

    We are looking for somebody/couple whom we can rely upon with common sense. Attention to detail and initiative are essential. General housekeeping experience would be useful but we will show you what to do!

    We need some help with cleaning, looking after the children, gardening would be a bonus if you know anything about that (I don't!) and any other DIY project we embark upon.
