  • Description



    If you and your partner consider yourselves to be 'professional workawayers' who approach your workaways placements as a job, and are skilled, have attention to detail and take pride in what you do, then you could be just what we're looking for!

    We are seeking couples, (sorry, no singles due to the balance of help we need), who ideally live in their own campervan/ RV/ converted van, are excellent at housekeeping, DIY and maintenance and are positive and pragmatic.

    Alex my partner and I, and our two children - Cordelia (12) and Sherlock (8) live in an idyllic lake-view site in West Sussex close to the bustling city of Brighton.

    We share this magical space with guests via an online rental site, and need help from couples to help with housekeeping and maintenance. Ideally you will have your own accommodation (camper van or similar), but we have a room that can be used in the bottom of our guesthouse.

    If you have have good attention to detail (or even be a bit OCD especially around cleaning!) and are helpful, proactive, practical and proficient at housekeeping and organising, and have carpentry and building skills, you could be just who we need.

    Housekeeping is the majority of assistance needed along with with carpentry and general building, with a basic knowledge of electrics and plumbing which is helpful, as there are always things to be mended and re-purposed. And also some helping with our two lovely kids who may need to be collected or dropped to school/ clubs and checked in on (they are very independent) if we're away.

    Driving is a necessity for getting around the vicinity, and the occasional school collection and we have vehicles you can use when needed. You're also welcome to borrow bicycles and even boat(!) to explore the locality as there are lots of picturesque bridal-paths and the River Ardur just along one of those in the locality to be able to explore.

    Your living would be quite independent from us, but communal meals are encouraged at least once a week so we can catch up and commune.

    We prefer a 1 - 4 month commitment of between 3 - 5 hours per day (more the help is needed and you are willing), 5 days per week and pay £9.50 per hour.
    Accommodation, if needed, is deducted from this at £65 per week per person.

    Aside from English language and culture the interesting bird-life in the surrounding areas (including our own chickens, ducks, peacocks and moorhens) could be studied.
    Nearby Knepp Castle is a nature reserve renound for it's 're-wilding' which is often extremely interesting for visitors to visit.
    There are walks around the countryside all around us, and for the adventurous, you can take our canoe and paddle down to Brighton!
    The wetlands that surround us, contain an incredible amount of diverse birdlife, and is an ornithologist paradise.
