Please read the following with care and make sure you tell us about how you could help us. If our family and project interests you, then we can have a chat or even better meet in person at our house !
We are a Dutch psychiatrist and English classical musician couple in our 40's with two children of 5 and 7. We are sensitively restoring a beautiful, large, old four storey canal house on the east side of Amsterdam (a few minutes bike ride from the centre). We moved in last year, still working on the house and need an extra pair of hands !
Preferably we are looking for a creative volunteer who would like to stay with us more MEDIUM to LONG term ( at least a few months) to help with organising the house, cleaning, inspire us with ideas to finish of our house and maybe do some interior painting. Also some cooking and help with the children might sometimes be asked for. We are NOT looking for a nanny for our children or a general cleaner, but more another one of us who can help with all the daily activities.
IT IS A PLUS if you are artistic and detailed in your work and IMPORTANT that you are bright, independent, reliable and trustworthy and not afraid of hard work and looking after a house. But most important that you are organised and energised !
We will certainly appreciate your help and are looking forward to hearing from you!
