Looking for the ideal job to top up the bank account before continuing your travels around NZ?

We are a farming family based in Dipton Southland looking for someone to help us and our children during a busy time in our lives - calving! We have three young children - one girl and two boys - aged five, three & a half and two.

We are looking for someone slot into our busy family life during calving (1 August - mid Sept). You will help our oldest get off to school, and entertain the boys as required. There is the expectation you will be able to serve breakfast, morning/afternoon tea, hang the washing on the line & bring it back in, and help the children tidy up at the end of the day.

Hours/days of work: 5am - 11am-ish (you can sleep until the children start to wake around 7am),  and 2pm - 5pm. Every Wednesday and one other day (to be mutually agreed upon) off. More hours available with our neighbour, at an hourly rate, if you are keen to save more money! We will consider couples, or two friends.

We are located an hour north of Invercargill and one and a half hours south of Queenstown. We strongly encourage you to explore the countryside on your days off.

In return, we will pay you $240 a week, provide you with a warm room in our family home, a shared bathroom with the children and all your meals. Or, if you prefer, we have off site accommodation & will pay you a food allowance. We are looking for someone able to start August 1st and work through until Mid-Sept.

We are looking for someone who is enthusastic, loves children and enjoys being outside as much as the children do. You must speak good English, have a full, clean drivers license and oodles of patience. Experience and references are essential.
