    January Help Needed (Last Minute)

    My husband has a job offer up North for a few weeks Jan/Feb 2023 so we're looking for a last minute helper. I will need someone for after school, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. You can stay in bed in the mornings, I've the breakfast routine down to a T :)

    We'll work out a 25-hour schedule, we live in walking distance to schools and everything and the bus stop is right outside.

    Kids are now 7, 6, 4 and 3, all in school 8.30 to 16.30 and for lunch.

    ***Summer Announcement***

    We need a nanny to come live with us, to be a babysitter to our 4 children and help with some light housework. I am Irish and we have four children, under 5! We live in sunny Toulon. I work from home as a writer to an online natural health supplements business, and my partner, Fred, is a cook. Fred works for the summer season, and although it is not far away, it still keeps him away from home most of the week. My little girls are 4 and 3 and 6mo and boy is 2, my hands are quite full! We are very easy-going and love to laugh. You would have to enjoy tea and chats! You will be close to the bus and the use of a bicycle/roller-blades. Time will be very flexible, easy to have particular time off if you want to join a sport or class, and we will arrange 2 days off a week. Depending on where you are from, it's a bit like paradise! You will have your own bedroom and I will supply you with a bus card so free transport around the city and to the beaches. I will feed you with the family (we are carnivores) and you will be at ease to ask me for anything if anything arises. I have traveled extensively in my youth, done WorkAway myself and other sites, hitch-hiker, couch-surfer, urban camper, environmental activist. I speak English and French, and if you speak, Gaelic, it is a major plus!

    We are interested in those who wish to come long-term as it is always sad to say goodbye, so we want to limit the number of those for 2020! It is difficult also for the children to see a new face each month, having just gotten used to the habits and falling in love with one! (OK, I admit, me too=))

    So it doesn't matter where you are from, we are a bilingual family french/English but as you will be mostly with me it will be English. 2 months minimum

    ***Summer Announcement*** A great opportunity to learn/practice your English. Toulon is in the PACA department of France - Provence, Alps, Côte Azur - so there are plenty of walk/hikes, water sports, beaches. It is also a great opportunity if you wish to make a career out of childcare - 4 kidsunder 7 years of age!

    ***Summer Announcement***
    I will need you to mind the two youngest a few hours during the day while I work from home or go to the shopping. You can stay in with them or go for a walk or do art, read books etc and I will need some help with light housework - clearing up after meals, keeping the kids room tidy, arranging the living room at the end of the day and a night or two a month babysitting for Fred and I's date night =) My job is flexible, so the household schedule is flexible. I speak English and French, and I would love if you could speak some Gaelic with the children, but that is not a necessity!

    Autres infos...

    There are some great beaches here. There are museums, galleries and a great little arts district in the centre. Cites like Cannes, Aix-en-Provence and Marseille are only an hour train ride away, and our city is in the shadow of a beautiful mountain/hill where you can walk or hike or bike. You can also go out to the bars and restaurants, with plenty of tips and suggestions ;)

    I am very easy going and friendly, and myself (32) and my partner (35) are still young, so we understand the needs of life. With the four kids I don't expect to get out and about much, so it would be great if you enjoyed sitting down and chatting and drinking tea. It is important that you and I get along. I like books and classic rock, although I am open to all music forms. I was involved in Arts in Ireland, and circus and environmental movements. It will be close quarters, but the area, although residential, is calm and tranquil.

    If you like children, and like the idea of our home for a few weeks, please do apply!
