    Hi, we are a busy family of 6 (hubby & I are both 33). We live in a suburb called Helensvale on the Gold Coast. Approx 20m drive to Surfers Paradise & 5m drive to a Gold Coast major shopping centres. We live next to a nature reserve & our view is full of greenery, looking towards the ocean. We live in very close proximity to public transport, shopping centres and medical services. We’re a short walk to the Gold Coast theme parks for hours of fun! We live in a 3-story, 6-bedroom home with a large swimming pool (to be completed by Summer 2022) and lush yard. We have 4 vibrant children (15, 12, 12, and 9). 3 are biologically ours & we are foster parents to our niece, 12. All children attend a private school full time and have extracurricular activities - 15-year-old girl, 12-year-old girl, 12-year-old boy & 9-year-old girl. Our eldest and youngest dance approx 8 hours a week each, and our boy plays soccer and futsal plus loves cooking. Our niece doesn't play sports but enjoys crafts and video games. My husband travels for work & I work from home (approx 35 hrs p/w). We are a very open & honest family with quite a hectic schedule.

    Both Steve, myself and our 15-year-old daughter are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. We require travellers who are the same, as my in-laws (elderly & ill) live separately on the property in a 2 bedroom granny flat, so we need to be precautious. We appreciate your understanding. We are careful but not over the top. We all still need to live our lives too :-)

  • Aide


    It will be approx 20-25 hours per week. There may be an odd date night that we would ask you to cover. Any extra hours would be compensated by reduced home duties or pocket money.


    Will include but are not limited to..helping with kids in afternoons (bus pickups, homework, assisting kids with their chores & room tidies, dinner prep), help with household jobs during day: bathrooms, spot cleaning, dusting, cleaning glass/mirrors, vacuum & mopping, general housekeeping, folding, taking out rubbish, changing sheets, keeping kids toys tidy (inside & outside), cleaning out car, etc. Pretty much helping me keep the house running.

    Approx Mon-Fri (7-11:30am) so plenty of time to explore the Gold Coast, etc. Flexibility on both sides is required as schedules and kids extracurricular activities vary daily. We are happy to be flexible with the schedule for each workaway. We've had some work aways who study English during the weekdays & we adapt to make this work :-)

    We require a very independent person who can complete tasks with minimal guidance. Must have a great eye for detail & be super time efficient. Due to the busyness of our schedules, we need someone who can comfortably speak English and who, if required in urgent situations, can drive a large vehicle well. Due to foster care regulations, unfortunately, we can only take female assistance. Sorry.

    The right person for this role must be genuinely wanting a family experience in Australia. It might include kicking a soccer ball around the front yard, watching a movie or sharing a lovely meal together, but please want a cultural exchange :-)

    Please email with any questions.
