UPDATE: Will consider hosting from May
to workawayers already in the U.K.
Hello ! We are Jess and Olivia - mum and daughter team and we would love to welcome a Workawayer *preferably female*
who is very enthusiastic and competent in using social media. We are launching a new business - writing and
selling our own children's books and need some social media support in particular (Facebook and Instagram).
You must have an excellent knowledge of English.
Other help required: light housework - washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom etc.
We live in a 2 bed apartment in south Manchester, lots to do and good transport links with buses and trams.
The workawayer will have their own room whilst we share the other bedroom. Shared bathroom. Lots of free time. 2 full days off every week. A timetable can be arranged. Must like dogs as we have dogs that visit with my mum.
You must enjoy spending time with children and able to interact with my daughter. She is very intelligent and
enjoys talking, dancing, playing games and baking.
NO SMOKER. Not even if you smoke outside as I don't want the smell of tobacco around my daughter.
ALCOHOL: I don't mind if you drink alcohol - in moderate quantities.
I usually do a Skype/ WhatsApp video call to talk to a potential workawayer to see if we get on.

You will have 2 full days off which we can discuss and arrange with you on the day of your arrival. It would be useful for us if on your volunteering day, you can split your hours and do 2 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the late afternoon/ evening. Some flexibility on this would be appreciated though and I can also be flexible if you wanted to change a volunteering day to a day off.
If you speak French or Spanish as a native speaker - that would be great as I am a language graduate and like to practice different languages too.
As mentioned above.
- Shared bathroom, (bath, shower and 1 toilet so please clean up after yourself)
- Gas central heating
- Kitchen/ diner
- Internet/ Broadband/ WiFi (feel free to bring your own laptop or other devices)
- large plasma TV/Dvd player/ Movie channel
I DON'T HAVE a CAR BUT WILL ARRANGE TRANSPORT TO COLLECT YOU FROM MANCHESTER AIRPORT OR THE TRAIN/ COACH STATION IN MANCHESTER CITY CENTRE.
Meals provided: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I hope that we will be able to make your stay an interesting and enjoyable one where you will experience the benefits of living in a city that's close to countryside and green spaces. There are lots of international students here so we have a very cosmopolitan ambience.
We are a multi-racial family and therefore please don't apply if you are not open to new experiences and different cultures. Racism or any type of prejudice is not welcome. I look forward to hearing from you.
