We have got space for 1 female helper to help with looking after the kid(s) and when not doing that to be a general helping hand with some house and garden work. It's autumn now and there are lots of garden jobs and weeds :)
You should have some experience with children and we'd like a 2 weeks minimum stay.

Jobs are a usually mixed and weather dependent - gardening (e.g. weeding, watering, tidy up jobs, odd jobs & projects), daily family life & household tasks (e.g. dishes, cleaning, help with cooking & washing), feeding animals/pets and looking after the kids.

We are a Kiwi-German family with 3 children (6, 9 and & 3 yrs old) and live in the beautiful Wairarapa region. We live on a sheep & beef farm, a big hill country station in rural Martinborough, only 3kms from the scenic Tora coast. We have got cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, chickens, honey bees and (of course) lots of sheep & cattle. My mother-in-law also has horses and is only a 25 min drive away on the other side of the farm if you'd like to go for a horse ride.

We'd like ~4-5 hours of help a day in exchange for food and accommodation in our family home.

Helpers should be comfortable around kids & animals, be honest and reliable and speak reasonable English (although I also speak German and the kids are bilingual). No vegetarians please - we're meat eaters ;o)

I can pick up from Masterton or Martinborough.
