  • Description


    We are a bilingual English speaking family ( from New Zealand/Germany ) and living on the outskirts of Berlin in a town called Fuerstenwalde/Spree.
    Here we are living in a beautiful house with a small garden in a nice and peaceful neighbourhood.

    We are looking for a lovely, independent, happy, friendly, tidy and helpful young woman ( over 20 years old ) to take care of our children and help in our household. Your work will include some housework like cleaning, cooking, help with the washing, preparing food and sometimes look after the children till dad is coming home in the evening.
    Mum is a Flightattendant and is away a few days a month. But while she is home you will have extra days free for yourself to explore the area, do German classes, learn more about the culture or whatever interest you.

    So more than anything we are looking for someone who is kind and patient and who'll enjoy being with Kids and sometimes take them to the local playground or afternoon activities by local bus.
    We used to have Volunteers while living in New Zealand for almost 9 years and have been really enjoying the company from all over the world. It's a great opportunity for us as a family to learn about life and culture in different places around the world.
    If you can cook us your favourite national dish and teach us the recipe we will be delighted.

    We are also interested to host people for a long term stay😉

    Non - smokers please
    We ask you to provide 2 references if you can.

  • Help


    Come to our busy household and help where it is needed. Our children are 15, 12 and 7 years old and going to a Montessori School in the area.
    Some days you need to pick up the two younger kids from their school by local public transport ( Train or Bus ).
    So you must feel comfortable using public transport!
    We live in a lovely house near a forest there is lots of space for everyone and a small garden to enjoy.
    If you happy to help out a bit and share your culture with us then we are looking forward to meeting you.

    Please note we have a hamster and a cat, which both are lovely but just in case you have a allergy.
