Welcome to New Zealand.

Hello - thank you for reading our Profile - I am hoping you can and spend some time with us. We are URGENTLY looking for someone to come for 2 weeks from the 12th/13th August to around the 24th August. The work will be 4 hours per day, and during the week we require someone from 3pm to 7pm to look after the children when they get home from school, do some chores (washing, house work etc) and get dinner ready. I am heading away to Australia for conference and my husband is working - he will be home each evening. You will then have all day to discover beautiful New Plymouth and Taranaki. Please continue to read more about our family...

We are a typical social slightly crazy professional kiwi family with two boys, 7 and 12 years of age with a 2 year old Samoyed dog named Chilli. There is a lot of activity in our household including laughter - sense of humour a must!

Over the last 7 years, we have thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Help X and have made wonderful friends. For us as a family, it is a great opportunity for the children to meet people from other countries and expand their knowledge of the world, and get some benefits of travelling without leaving home.

Typically the work we need help with is general work around the house, cleaning, gardening, child minding and the occasional project such as painting. Nothing is difficult and we will only ask of you what we would normally do ourselves.

Usually we ask our Helpers to work 4 hours per day in exchange for accommodation and all meals and to help with the dishes and tidying up after dinner. You need to provide your own alcohol if you wish to indulge :)

As we are a busy family please only apply if you are 1) a hard worker, 2) have initiative and can work responsibly and honestly on your own, 3) are willing to be a part of our family, 4) happy to be flexible and have a sense of humour!!!

In exchange we will provide your own large room with a very comfortable queen sized bed away from the main house and access to wifi, great meals, home baking and real kiwi family experiences. Over the years it has proven "you get out of it what you put into it".

We look forward to meeting you and becoming a member of our Help X family.

Rachel, Rhys, Riley and Dylan x.x.x.x
