I love the outdoors and being around animals, particularly horses, dogs and cats
Hi! I'm Rachael - I'm a Web Designer, living in Berlin, Germany with my boyfriend who runs a carpentry business. I love the outdoors, and am looking to help out on a property by the sea.
---ABOUT ME & WHAT I CAN OFFER---
I'm very good with computers, and I can build you a website for your business. I'm a marketing generalist, I'm very good in writing, blogging and social media as well as SEO. I speak fluent english and can serve behind a bar or reception area as I have many times in the past. I'm generally a sociable person and have travelled, met lots of people and done many kinds of work. I am physically active: yoga (over 20 years experience), cycling, jogging, weights or a swim. I also used to be a personal trainer.
I quit my last full-time job in September 2020, and am in the process of starting a new freelance business at https://waveweb.design, building websites for small businesses, startups, artists, musicians or similar. I am good with animals and mowing, gardening, painting, craft things etc and am interested in sustainable building & living.
I can cook most things, and prefer healthy food with a high balance of fruit, salad and veg (I don't eat pork, beef or other red meats at all but a bit of chicken/fish/cheese is ok). I’m interested in learning to garden and grow vegetables as well as natural building or eco homes. I learn quickly and am organised, clean and tidy. I prefer not to do large amounts of shopping or cleaning or taking care of children, although I am obviously OK to do my fair share like you would in a share house - I just don’t want to be a housekeeper or carer most of the time. I like to have defined work hours and tasks rather than being on call all the time.
---WHAT I LOOK FOR IN A WORKSTAY---
Up to 5 hours work per day, up to 5 days per week in return for a place to sleep, healthy food & use of washing machine, access to a bathroom (shower and toilet)
Wifi ideally, because I can do a few hours of online freelance work in my own time if it's available
---WITH REGARD TO COVID19---
I'm very low risk because I don't go out to work, I work from home on my laptop freelancing. I also very rarely use public transport, preferring to cycle everywhere within 2.5 hours cycle.
From Jan 2021 for perhaps 8 weeks, but I can split that up between different locations
(Updated 28th Dec 2020)
I'm mature and have done many jobs from reception, admin, bar work, food prep, cafe, graphic design and then executive advertising for many years. Generally there's not much I can't do, and I have plenty of common sense and the ability to make decisions without running to a boss all the time. I take the initiative.
