  • Help



    The main work is based around helping in the house, cleaning, organizing and bit of gardening. Maybe sharing house projects with the family, such as painting rooms, some DIY or redecorating.

    The workawayer can also do some cooking if they like. Normally mum cooks.
    The workaway person can be also asked to stay with the kids some evenings or maybe drive them sowhere if needed.

    Average working hours per day 4 to 5. A little bit of work sometimes on Saturday mornings if there is something going on, but weekends are normally free, unless parents go out for dinner.

    The house in Spain.
    The house has a mid-size swimming pool , all kids know how to swimm already. There is a playground area and a decent sized climbing wall in the garage with a moon wall included.
    The family helper or helpers would live in a little house in the same propery, with their own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
