  • Description


    Do you love children? Do you love the countryside? Would you like to work with horses and live with a family and learn english with us? Experience with horses and riding is preferable.

    We are looking for a GIRL who is friendly, happy, confident, live-in help with horses and dogs, plus some small amounts of childcare and household jobs as part of our family in rural England.  We have a son (12 yrs old) a daughter (10 yrs old) and another daughter (5 years old) who all go to the same school. It is Not essential but if you have a driving licence and would be comfortable driving on the left side of the road, then that would be a bonus to me so that I can spend valuable time in the office.

    We offer : Weekly pocket money, all food, accommodation (your own room, private bathroom, TV, Wifi) and opportunity to travel to other cities (e.g London is only one hour away)

    We are looking for someone who is accustomed to living in rural area, who likes a quiet surroundings but a busy lifestyle. We need to use the car to travel everywhere so be prepared for this, it is not like living in a town. Our house is 10-15 minutes drive from the closest town. If you prefer not to drive but you are OK with being at home and not having total independence then we would be happy to talk to you; i can easily take you to the train station at weekends of you wish to travel round and see other parts of the UK.

    I can work from home at the beginning so I will show you our routine. You will help prepare meals, do some shopping and help me make sure we have all the necessary things in the house, empty the dishwasher, help with washing and ironing and keeping the house tidy.

    I need daily help with the horses, cleaning out stables, general maintenance, clearing the paddocks, feeding the horses and you may be required to ride and exercise them so experience is a benefit.

    The start date can be anytime from now but we can be flexible. If the timing does not suit you, let's discuss this further because I would be willing to wait for the right person.

    On a typical day, you will be required to work around 6/7hrs per day during the week (sometimes weekends) taking care of the children, ironing, various household chores, occasional shopping and occasionally on the weekends. Ideally we want to find some one who is happy to help taking the dog for a walk and helping take care of the horses when I am too busy (ie: feeding, mucking out, cleaning paddocks, exercising, etc.)

    We need someone who is full of positive energy, very flexible to fit into the family routine so that we all work together in harmony. Family life is sometimes unpredictable so we are looking for someone has INITIATIVE and who can think for themselves, someone responsible and mature to be entrusted in the house and with the children if we go away sometimes (not very often).

    You will also have 20 free days per year, fully paid.
