--- Looking for a short-term (1-3 weeks) female helper ASAP to help with childcare (kindergarten age, pref. German speaking), gardening and general household chores while we are busy working outside with our beehives. We are also preparing to move house soon, so there is too much to do and not enough time in a day :)

We have got space for 1 female helper to help with everyday tasks (e.g. cleaning, cooking, looking after the kid(s)) and help with tidy up work in the garden.
You should have some experience (e.g. household, kids) and we'd like a 7-10 days minimum stay.


Jobs are a 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 (7, 10 and & 4 yrs old) and live in the beautiful Wairarapa region. We live on a sheep & beef farm about 3kms from the scenic Tora coast. We have got cats, rabbits, dogs, chickens, honey bees and on the farm are lots of sheep & cattle (of course). There is also an opportunity for horse riding if you've got some experience.

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 Martinborough (also sometimes from Masterton or Wellington but that depends on the day).
