We have space for helpers from the start to mid December, then from mid January until March.
Hi, we are a young family living in Cheltenham, we have just had our first child, Isabella, in early September.
I, Sarah, am from Australia originally, and have previously been a helper within the UK.
Dave, my husband, is British and has spent 8 years living in Denmark.
We both love to travel and experience new cultures, and we feel being hosts will enable us to meet people from different cultures easily.
We would like helpers (1 – 2), from now onwards.
I would like friendly, honest and polite helpers, who are happy to share their cultures with us and love children!
Our household is a a non-smoking household and would prefer non-smoking helpers.
We are not vegetarians, however any Helpers who are vegetarians will be more than welcome and can cook separate non-meat foods if they wish.
Train and bus are the easiest ways to get to Cheltenham,
we are happy to arrange a time to meet you at the Cheltenham Spa Railway Station or the Cheltenham Spa bus station.
Dave works full time and I am on maternity leave.
We would like 1-2 Helpers to help with housework, cleaning, cooking and other general household tasks. There may be some general and DIY tasks around the house and backyard, such as painting or put up small household fittings, making and maintaining garden beds, maintaining lawns (we have a small backyard).
For accommodation, food and WiFi we would like 4 hours work Monday to Friday – your weekends are free!
We are flexible and you could work 8 hours one day and have the next day off. There is also the opportunity for helpers to get paid work within the local community, alongside helping us.
The accommodation will be in the second bedroom.
There is a shared bathroom and second downstairs WC.
