  • Description


    ** BREXIT notice **
    Freedom of movement from the EU to the UK ended on 1st Jan 2021. To comply with the new rules in the UK people looking to arrive in the UK must have the correct visas for the UK. To do voluntary work a particular visa may be required.

    Please note UK, Irish, Commonwealth citizens with the right to abode in the UK, BNO passport holders (Hong Kong) and those with Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme (working holiday) visas will not be affected by these changes.

    ** Dates - We are open to hosting in July and August for a minimum 3 week period **
    We are looking for someone who can help with outdoor garden tasks, cooking and be child friendly !!
    We require less childcare support as our boys are now more independent, but seek help with the garden, ad hoc tasks and cooking family meals.
    If you are into sports coaching that would be a real bonus for us.

    We consider people who are at least 22 - we have no upwards age limit and who are vaccinated for CV-19.

    We do not post photos of our family and home for privacy rooms but happy to give you a video tour as part of the interview process.

    We look for support across the following areas
    1) You can cook simple dishes and be happy to do so a few times a week at least.
    2) You would be happy to do ad hoc tasks in the garden and in the house (cleaning, painting, garden specific, tidying etc) occasionally using power tools if you are happy to do so once instruction has been given.
    3) You must be comfortable with children and sometimes lead activities with them.

    We are a family (German/ Irish/ British) of 4 living in a small town in Northamptonshire with 2 healthy, school going and fun loving boys aged 8 and 11 and 1 large Maine coon cat !
    We are an English speaking house but can also speak German (native) and French, and we live in a large period property with a large garden in a beautiful part of the country.
    The area has fabulous wildlife aswell as a couple of miles from a shopping centre where apart from shops there are restaurants and a cinema.
    There are bus and train services that serve local runs and London and North/ Midlands.
    The house is walking distance to a town centre where there are various shops and cafes.

    Currently we are looking for a workaway to support the family for cultural exchanges in language, cooking etc. Also we have small gardening and DIY projects you can learn new skills and get new experience.

    We can offer own bedroom with shared bathroom and to be part of our family. We can also offer use of a bike and if you are a confident driver we can put you on our car insurance.
