  • Description


    Hey !

    We are family of 4 people, a dad (Manu), a mum (Cyrielle) and 2 kids (Taina 9yo, Zian 4 and a half yo).
    We live in a chalet in Saint Gervais les bains , Haute-Savoie (France).
    It is a ski resort close to chamonix (25 minutes driving) or Annecy/Geneva (1 hour driving)

    We need help for the kids because we have got two jobs with irregularly schedules.
    Manu is a ski instructor and sometimes work far from home (mainly during automn) and Cyrielle is a nurse and work early in the morning or quite late in the evening.

    So we search a girl who could help us with the kids.
    It's not a full time job of course but what we would love is to share our typical way of life here with a girl who could sensibilize the kids with a foreign language.

    We live in a chalet built four years ago and the workawayer will have her own room.

    The profile we search is also a girl who has got the driving license and who knows some basics of the french language.

    We already had 2 experiences with workawayers last automn and winter.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a workawayer you could learn how to speak french, discover the french alps during automn and winter with all kind of activities here (trekking, skiing or snowboarding)
    You could also have an experience with kids that is very useful in life.
    And the best i think is to live a trip in the country and have a real human exchange.

  • Help


    What we need precisely is someone who could be able to wake up the kids when we work and pick them up to school. The schedule is around 7 am to 8:30 and 4pm to 7pm so around 4 or 5 hours with the kids per day.
    We dream about someone who could share with our family her culture.
