  • Description


    I am a single parent with 2 grown children and a girl of secondary school age.
    i run a small party decorating business and a small general home and hardware store,

    the wedding business is very interesting and demanding during the peak season of the year, because various wedding or party decoration jobs needs to be ready before taking them to venues.
    This is very interesting but sometimes can be demanding due to other duties that needs to be done in the shop. there are skills that can be learnt here which will be useful for knowing how to decorate for special occasions. how to design balloons and also how to arrange silk flowers and gain experience in customer service skills
    you will also improve on English skills if this is needed

    The person i am looking for must be a FEMALE (*️️️️*️️️️*️️️️VERY IMPORTANT *️️️️*️️️️*️️️️)

    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.

    The person will have their own bed in a room . This room also has my daughters belongings so my daughter will need access, especially in the mornings for school preparations. The person must be child friendly as my daughter is 12 and can be chatty sometimes

    Please it is very important that from the onset the person realises that she is 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 to experience décors for occasions. i am very flexible with time as some days can be quiet, during this time, you can tour the local areas of interest or take trips to places of interest within Dartford or local surroundings

    I run a small party decorating business and have a general convenience store sometimes the demands of the work gets too much during peak seasons, so i am looking for help with domestics around the home and garden so if you love gardening, you are very welcome. i can also teach you balloon décor arrangements and silk flower arrangements. a computer person is a nice to have but not compulsory. good communication skills will be great to have, but this can be learnt. very conversant with social media and general computing skills will be an advantage.
    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. Also a young matured person ready to take on a new environment and the challenges that comes with it. The person must be very respectful as well.
