Payment: $300 a week plus board Location: Canterbury
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

We are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic and honest person to join our family for 4 months from the 20th July helping with our 12 year old son and twin 9 year old girls. We live on a dairy farm located 35 minutes from Christchurch close to ski fields, the mountains and all Canterbury has to offer. You will be required to assist getting the kids ready and off to school, do a bit of house cleaning during the day and then either meet the kids off the school bus or take them to afterschool sporting activities. Meal preparation some nights of the week will be expected as well. You will generally have a few hours in the middle of the day off to do as you like. It is essential you have a drivers license and sound knowledge and ability to drive on New zealand roads. Your own vehicle would be a great advantage. You will generally work Monday to Friday with potentially some weekend work negotiated. We can also accomodate long weekends if you want to head away exploring.

We offer your own furnished room, only suitable for a single person, full board including food and all household expenses. If you use your own vehicle we will conpensate you for this very fairly. We are working on 40 hours a week of work and oncall time. Running a dairy farm and being a rural midwife will sometimes see both parents gone at 4am in the morning so you will need to be on call for the kids from this time and up at 6.30 to get them ready and off to school. We have a strong family network to help out where needed aswell. On top of your board we will pay you $300 a week after tax.

We are an outgoing family who enjoys being active. the outdoors and rural life. The kids enjoy skiing, horse riding and playing sports. We have a nice big warm house with a new swimming pool, many pets including 2 horses, 2 goats, 2 guinea pigs, chickens, mable the kune kune pig, 2 cats and 2 dogs. Our closest town is Rolleston that offers most shops you may need.

If you are willing to embrace this offer and become part of our faimily, we will endeavor to give you the experience of a kiwi family and involve you in our family and all we do.
