*looking for strong workers currently or next month to help with firewood collecting (learn to use a chainsaw!), landscaping and possibly building*

We moved 2 1/2 years ago to Amberley, 50km north of Christchurch to convert an interesting older industrial building into a house. We require help with renovating our house and garden. So it's currently a bit of a work in progress so not flash but you will be:
~Warmly welcomed and appreciated
~Well fed and watered ( or aled, wined, juiced, coffeed, tea-ed, whatever your pref!)
~Warm and in your own private space (retro caravan or cabin with own outside toilet)
~Able to use our wireless internet and bicycles (some electrified), maybe a small motorbike!

Work is usually 3-4 hours per day, can be flexible i.e. have a day off and work more another day. We usually start with 3-4 days and then may extend if everybody happy.

There is lots to do in the area and we are driving to Christchurch a couple of times a week at least. Amberle... more inside

Hello Helpers.

As we head into the warmer months we are primarily looking for helpers who are expert painters. We have some painting projects outside and inside to be completed. If you are able to assist with other duties also like gardening, watering, general maintenance and some domestic duties like cleaning we would love to hear from you.

We opened our guest house accommodation in December 2013. The Spa Therapy room is operational and we have small group dinners and cooking demonstrations booked in for 2014.

We are located in Cheviot, North Canterbury approx 1 hour and 20 minutes drive north of Christchurch or 50 minutes drive south of Kaikoura. You could check out www.cheviotnz.com

We are not organic but do grow our own vegies, fruit and herbs. Apart from painting we have a variety of jobs we need help with such as gardens to plant and weed, lawns to mow, general maintenance and cleaning. If you have building skills these would be useful too as we have dec... more inside

Love being outside and have experience of working with horses? Love being busy and can work unsupervised? If you are looking for a lovely warm home (with spa pool) we would love to hear from you. We have a vacancy for an enthusiastic Helper from mid-August.

The property is primarily run as an equine care and agistment/livery business. Horse owners bring their horses here to be cared for whilst they are on holiday or recovering from injury (see our website for more detail).

Accommodation is provided in the on-site residence - a lovely warm, beautifully renovated, 5-bdrm & 2 bathroom villa with the shift-working owners. Full board is provided together with own bedroom, bathroom and use of WIFI, Sky TV and spa pool.

In exchange, the typical type of work a Helper would be asked to undertake would simply involve carrying out the daily care chores associated with horses (feeding, cover changing, grooming, 'mucking out', and general property care etc) - all easy and enjoyable wo... more inside

We are so lucky to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We keep horses which are used primarily for dressage, pony club and eventing. We have a lovely property with a large easy care garden!!
It would be great to have some help in the garden, general weeding and spraying, but mainly we need help exercising and caring for the horses. So we would love to hear from helpers that are really experienced horse people! Especially with riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!! We would love it if you are able to ride without supervision sometimes!! Our horses are competition horses so please no beginner riders or inexperienced riders!!We are looking for help from Now onwards!!
We have 4 children, all are school age.
We are non smokers and during the winter we love to ski!!

We have a small block just up off the end of the Canterbury plains, surrounded by rolling hills. We have a cosy 3 bedroom house that faces the sun and has 2 woodburners, set well back from the road with lots of established trees. Bill has taken time off from earthquake related work to complete some alterations on the house over winter. Marion works for the Department of Conservation, being mostly based at home over winter. We have bees, chooks, cattle and an energetic young dog. We are heavily into re-vegetating our property with native plants that Marion raises from seed. We are quite a laid back couple, keen trampers, and into cooking good food.
Jobs include helping Bill on the house, weeding, planting, potting-up natives, helping get the vegetable garden ready for spring, and possibly some house and animal-sitting. Please note that most of our jobs are out of doors and can be quite physical, so if you don't like getting dirty hands this may not be the place for you. We would... more inside

.
We are a well travelled family used to International visitors. We have a beautiful sheep and beef farm which we work full time. We have flat, rolling and hilly country with mountain and sea views. We farm two properties and there is always plenty to do. We also have several quality horses used for competitions and hunting. For a keen person there will be opportunities to ride, if they are up to it. I am a qualified equestrian competition coach. The riding is not included as work, unless a professional rider in this field. Riding around our beautiful farm or along the local beach are regularly available.
Also general help with the horses, garden, farm or house and cooking .We will find work suited to the individual ability and desire! Some days may be a full days work and then a free day to relax or look around the area. The main thing is to be willing, enthusiastic and keen to turn your hand to anything! Own transport is an advantage but not essential.

We live on a lifestyle block in North Canterbury. We have a couple of cows we are raising for meat, 10 chooks, 2 cats, 1 rabbit, and 3 school-age children.

We have a large garden that we never keep on top of, so primarily we are looking for help with this. Some housework and odd-jobs outside would also be great.

We have a warm, modern home, approx 10km from Rangiora, with your own room.

We would prefer over 25's, people who love animals, gardening, a bit of hard work and kids!

LOOKING FOR SOMEONE RIGHT NOW PREFER SOLO PERSON.

We are a busy Family of 5. Parents in 30s and 3 boys 7, 6, 3 years old. We live 10min out of Rangiora but go there a few times a week and 30 min from Christchurch.

My Husband is a shift worker and I work from home so it is always very busy. We are looking for a helper to do mainly housework, cooking and childcare but there are also never ending general chores around our property including lawn mowing, painting and gardening (the work is not hard just things we run out of time for). We also have cattle, sheep and a cat.
An extra pair of hands is always appreciated!!

In exchange for 3 hours honest work per day you will get a room in our house with a double bed and ensuite and 1 main meal per day (normally dinner) we would also expect you to help out with meals and cleaning up after meals. There is a large supermarket in Rangiora.

We also have limited Wifi.
