URGENT HELP PLEASE!! Looking for help for next few days with potential to stay on as long as you like. URGENT from today or tomorrow 19th April.
You need to be able to drive to my place in Waroona or get a bus to Waroona.
I have some urgent office work to do before I start a new job and would appreciate some help with cooking and childcare 4.5 yr old girl, so I can get it done.
The first few days will be to watch (she is happy and LOTS of fun) her all day but then have a few days off. I can pay a little bit but not much, food and board included and can use my phone.
If there are two people looking for a place then there is always other things to do on the farm.
Horses to work/play with if experienced.
We have a lovely 100 acre farm with cows and horses in a quiet location 20 minutes from the beach (Waroona 1.5 hrs south of Perth).Own room with double bed, tv room and shared bathroom.
Own car would be good.
Guarantee green quiet peaceful farm.
Expressions of interest required:
Looking for caretakers in the future for our pastoral lease homestead (750km north east of Perth in Sandstone WA - no station work required except for an occasional one paddock fence check/water run, however we are upgrading our homestead slowly so any handyman abilities would be favourable. Painting, carpentry, paving, gardening (gardens to be established) or what skills you may have to use?.
We often work away (will be for remainder of this year on and off as through others negligence and dishonesty we have lost a lot lately). We are looking for a mature coupe or single that is used to living in a remote area. Must be capable of looking after themselves.
Registered Firearm user also beneficial.
All the comforts of home available and the house free to use however when we are home it would be handy if you have your own caravan, we do have a caravan available that is clean and dry but it does also need maintenance.
Must be prepared to give valid references and be prepared to get a "working with children check" and police clearance as we have a children and require someone trustworthy.
This is not a paid position, however accomadation is free but you will still most times need to provide fuel for a generator when we are not there at your own cost.
We are currently upgrading to solar power also so hope to limit (use of diesel)in the future. Phone is available for use for free (except international etc)and some internet provided.
Ideal person/s may be interested in prospecting and willing to lend a hand when needed and be prepared to do something in return for use of house/property such as a little handyman work here and there. Also possess common sense and be able to service generator and firefighting pumps to ensure a good power and water supply.
Must be clean, capable, tidy and honest.
Potential for long term arrangement if we can find the right person.
Also possibly looking for caretakers (similar to above) on property in Waroona (maintenance of gardens and some odd jobs in return for a beautiful, quiet place to park your van on 100 acres).
