  • Description


    We run a busy family business in the horse industry and are looking for some help for a few hours a day to care for our one year old and our newborn baby (girls) so that Mum can have a couple of hours a day to help with the business. We live on a 50 acre farm with many horses,dogs,chickens, ponies. We are about an hours drive from Sydney and 15 minutes from a busy little town, so our accommodation is not too isolated and there are many tourist destinations near by, the Blue Mountains, national parks and cider cellar doors. We have three full time staff who work in the business along with myself and my husband, so there are always lots of people around. The main duties of the job are to look after Frankie our one year old and play with her for a couple of hours per day, if possible we would also like help with our newborn baby and some light food preparation. We will provide accommodation in our home and meals each night with our family in exchange for the help around the home, we are also willing to teach the candidate how to play polo.
