Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($200 pw)
Location: Waikite Valley

Experience: Limited Experience Necessary

Hi there!

We are a young family with two children aged 7 and 9.  We are looking for someone to help us with our children during our busy season on the farm (calving time) from the 15th of July until the 30th of September.  The job will involve getting the children ready for school, helping them with their homework with them after school, general housework (vacuuming, dusting, loading and unloading the dishwasher, doing laundry etc) and cooking dinner some nights. 

The person we are looking for will speak english fluently, have a fun loving sense of humour and enjoy children and the outdoors. 

This may suit 2 friends travelling together, our friends (2km away) are also looking for someone to help their family.  They have 3 children.  If there is two of you, there may be a car available for you to use while you are here.

We live in a beautiful valley in the Central North Island called Waikite Valley.  We are 20 minutes drive from Rotorua, 40 minutes from Taupo, 1 hour from Mount Maunganui and 1.5 hours from the National Park ski fields!!  There are many free activities to do in the area, we have some amazing hiking tracks, lakes and also some world class mountain biking trails.  We have mountain bikes and a kayak that are available for you to use.  There are also geothermal hot rivers a short drive from our house which are also free.

Accommodation is a private sleep out beside the house with its own shower and toilet.  Preference given to someone who has their own car as we are often too busy to drive you to the bus station.

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you!!

If you have any special dietary requirements (ie. allergies to anything or if you are vegetarian/vegan) please let us know in your application.
