    Update October 2020: we currently have no availability for Workawayers unless you really enjoy DIY and mess as we are having a lot of work done to the house over the next few months.

    We're a bilingual, non-smoking, very friendly English/French family living very close to the centre of Toulouse. We have three children - two boys and a girl aged 17, 15 and 12 and two cats called Tickle and Lottie :) I run a business teaching English to English-speaking children, and also head up the English dept at a university. My husband works in IT project management for Airbus.

    We tend to speak mostly English at home, though the children always speak French with their dad. This is by no means a fully French environment and would probably not suit someone whose priority was to improve their French!

    We really need someone who has native level English - there is a lot going on and that person needs to 'get it' pretty quickly. Oh, and a generally laid back attitude and sarcastic sense of humour are absolute 'must-haves' in our house ... as well as being anti-Brexit and anti-Trump! We really won't get on if you are very pro either of these two. No point pretending otherwise! :)

  • Help


    We are currently feeling the strain of holding down three jobs and being parents to three children!

    We need someone to pick the kids up from school, feed them (and make enough for us to have the leftovers when we get home later), keep the house as clean and as tidy as possible (not always easy with so many bodies in it), and run simple errands (this usually involves keeping the fridge stocked with trips to the local shop (we do a big shop every couple of weeks but the food disappears very quickly!).
