Workaway Available for:
Single / Couple/ 2 friends
Available from mid June to Workawayers already in the U.K.
Hello ! We are Jess and Olivia - mum and daughter and we really enjoy hosting workawayers.
As a single parent, trying to work from home, I would appreciate some help doing light housework and joining in family activities.
We have a lot of outdoor space /garden which I'd like some help with too - such as planting, to develop some play areas etc. If you have DIY skills and enjoy creating things with wood - that would be amazing.
You must have an excellent knowledge of English.
Other help required: light housework - washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom etc.
We live in a 2 bed apartment in south Manchester, lots to do and good transport links with buses and trams.
The workawayer will have their own room whilst we share the other bedroom. Shared bathroom. Lots of free time. 2 full days off every week. A timetable can be arranged. Must like dogs as we have dogs that visit with my mum.
You must enjoy spending time with children and able to interact with my daughter. She is very intelligent and
enjoys talking, dancing, playing games and baking.
NO SMOKER. Not even if you smoke outside as I don't want the smell of tobacco around my daughter.
ALCOHOL: I don't mind if you drink alcohol - in moderate quantities.
I usually do a Skype/ WhatsApp video call to talk to a potential workawayer to see if we get on.

You will have 2 full days off which we can discuss and arrange with you on the day of your arrival. It would be useful for us if on your volunteering day, you can split your hours and do 2 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the late afternoon/ evening. Some flexibility on this would be appreciated though and I can also be flexible if you wanted to change a volunteering day to a day off.
If you speak French or Spanish as a native speaker - that would be great as I am a language graduate and like to practice different languages too.
