  • Description


    Im a Single Working Father of 2 Beautiful kids (Boy aged 9 and Girl aged 4) who just needs someone to live in and help with the raising of my children for the 2 weeks per month that I have them. I work in the Construction Industry and generally work Mon-Sat but some saturdays I have off. The kids are pretty easy going, they love spending time outside riding bikes or kicking a ball and playing with our Kelpie X dog.

    We seek a (female or couple) helper/s who is really GREAT with kids. I will need my son dropped to school Mon-Fri and my Daughter dropped to daycare 2 days per week and looked after by you on the other 3 days during the week, both of the kids looked after on Saturday mornings till approximately 2-3pm.

    I only have my kids 2 weeks per month so for the other 2 weeks you can do what you choose. You will be sharing our home with us so we want to ensure you are family orientated. We also need people with a solid comprehension of English and who able to work independently. After work, we all eat dinner then do the cleaning up after. Dinner meal times are a time to socialize. It would be amazing if you could share and prepare some of your native cuisine! If you are not an experienced cook we can learn and share recipes.

    What else ...

    Their is always plenty to see in North Lakes. You can visit some local beaches at Redcliffe, go to the markets etc. The house is relatively new. I work full time and enjoy spending as much time with my kids as I can when I'm not at work. I would love if you could help with either cooking or preparing dinners during the week and helping my son with his homework after school.
