  • Description


    I am a single parent with 2 grown children and a girl of secondary school age.
    i enjoy working for myself

    you will improve in English if this is needed and learn our African culture and style of dressing and food we cook.

    We also would like to experience another culture in our house, so we want someone who is not shy to share cooking experience

    My work is very interesting but sometimes can be demanding due to other tasks such as housework within the home

    I am looking for some one who is not lazy and is very conversant with keeping their room and environment tidy without being told, also be ready to iron as i don't like keeping a pile of clothes to be ironed.

    Do you love to paint within the house? this would be an added bonus.

    The person will have their own bed in a room . This room has other belongings also, so we will need access if need be, . The person must be child friendly as my daughter is 14 and can be chatty sometimes

    Please it is very important that from the onset the person realises that they are coming to a family of African origin ( please check my photos)

    The person must be neat, know how to use initiative to carry out tasks stipulated during their staying time and ready to do some cooking, cleaning, ironing and gardening, also if willing come out with me for experience . i am very flexible with time, you can tour the local areas of interest or take trips to places of interest within Dartford or local surroundings

    i am looking for help with domestics around the home and garden so if you love gardening, you are very welcome.
    I am also looking for someone who can help do some painting around the house, i enjoy DIY and keeping my house up to date

    good communication skills will be great to have, or if you are looking to improve your English, this can be of benefit
    I am looking for someone who is ready to stay from 2 weeks or more. This will be to the advantage of someone looking to learn a different culture and different cooking styles. a young matured person ready to take on a new environment and the challenges that comes with it. The person must be very neat and respectful as well.
