  • Description

    Description

    We are a Spanish-English family living in a beautiful mountain area of Andalucia, Spain.
    I am a busy working Mum with lots to do and not enough time. I am self-employed and work from home where I live with my (Spanish) husband and 3 of my children (27, 25 and 16), 2 grandchildren (1 and 7) and my father. My other children also visit frequently along with my other grandchildren.
    We would like general help with the youngsters and around the house and maybe also some basic admin work, as well as ad hoc jobs that might come up such as planting, weeding (depending on the time of year).
    I would like someone who will help for 4-5 hours per day, Monday to Friday with weekends off. The schedule is very flexible and can fit round any plans the volunteer may have.
    You will have a private room, shared bathroom and all meals. Our "family" meal time is at lunch where we would all sit down together and the other meals are much more of a free-for-all!
    We are 5 km from the nearest town and we go in and out daily so lifts aren't a problem!
    We are very easy going and would welcome a warm-natured volunteer to live as part of our family. Driving is an asset but not essential.

    Somos una familia española-inglesa que vive en una hermosa zona de montaña de Andalucía, España.
    Soy una madre trabajadora con mucho que hacer y poco tiempo. Soy autónoma y trabajo desde casa donde vivo con mi marido (español) y 3 de mis hijos (27, 25 y 16), 2 nietos (1 y 7) y mi padre. Mis otros hijos también me visitan con frecuencia junto con mis otros nietos.
    Nos gustaría tener ayuda en general con los niños y en la casa y tal vez también algo de trabajo administrativo básico, así como los trabajos ad hoc que puedan surgir, como la plantación, el deshierbe (dependiendo de la época del año).
    Me gustaría que alguien trabajara durante 4-5 horas al día, de lunes a viernes, con los fines de semana libres. El horario es muy flexible y puede ajustarse a cualquier plan que tenga el voluntario.
    Tendrás una habitación privada, baño compartido y todas las comidas. Nuestra comida "familiar" es al mediodía donde nos sentamos todos juntos y las otras comidas son mucho más libres.
    Estamos a 5 km del pueblo más cercano y entramos y salimos a diario, así que los desplazamientos no son un problema.
    Somos muy tranquilos y daríamos la bienvenida a un voluntario cariñoso para vivir como parte de nuestra familia. Conducir es una ventaja pero no es esencial.
