  • Description


    Looking for a workawayer who enjoys helping around the house and can occasionally look after our 3-year old daughter.

    Hello workawayers, we are Padma (Australian citizen), Arthur (Dutch citizen) and Zoë (born in August 2018). We moved from Amsterdam to Sydney in late 2018 and are in the process of launching Australia's first health-focused, 100% plant-based meal-kit service, Just Add Vegan. Our daughter Zoë goes to daycare Mon-Fri (08:00-17:30h).

    We live in Epping (northern suburbs), in a brand new four-bedroom house, surrounded by trees and birds, 200m from Terrys Creek nature reserve and 1km from Epping town center and railway station (24 minutes to Sydney Central Station by express train).

    We are looking for an English-speaking workawayer who enjoys helping around the house or performing any other activities to support us in realising our dreams in the vegan food space. We would ideally like someone who wants to stay at least one month. Working hours are flexible. We are vegan and would welcome someone who is happy to eat vegan food only in the house.

    Please see the calendar on this page for availability.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our house’s proximity to a railway/metro station and bus stops provides an excellent opportunity to explore Sydney and experience the city's lifestyle. There is also the opportunity for the Workawayer to try a variety of different vegan food and learn how to cook some meals if they want.

  • Help


    Helping us around the house (e.g. keeping the lounge room and kitchen tidy and clean, doing the laundry, watering the plants, etc.), cooking and occasionally looking after Zoë.
