POSITIONS AVAILABLE NOW
We have a position available for a volunteer Nanny/Au Paid working on a horse farm. We mainly have Thoroughbred horses which we break in, pre-train, train for racing and we also have some retired racehorses, which are used for riding lessons, eventing and showjumping. We are located on 60 acres, 15 minutes from Pakenham. Our family has 2 girls who are pretty independent aged 9 & 13.
We are looking for someone to help out Monday - Friday with:
Driving kids to / from school (this is around 2.5 hours/day)
Preparing packed lunches for kids
Laundry / Ironing
We have had a number of backpackers with us over the years and most we are still in touch with today (happy to provide references).
We can supply you with your own room in separate accommodation (2 bedroom) next to main house. We also will provide all your meals & Wi-Fi, and use of outdoor spa (so refreshing after work, or just to chill out!)
We can also provide use of a car (subject to valid, clean Driver’s Licence) on your days off, so you can go exploring this beautiful region of Victoria. Gippsland has some gorgeous areas to see & enjoy – we are about 1 hour from Phillip Island (see the Penguin Parade), 1 hour from Healesville Sanctuary (see native Australian animals), 1.5 hours from Mt Baw Baw (go skiing in Winter), 1 hour from lovely beaches, 1 hour from Melbourne.
Work is five days a week (M-F), with weekends off. The kids spend 5 days a fortnight with their Dad, so when kids aren't here, you may be required to assist with other projects (ie painting, gardening, etc)
We look forward to hearing from you soon. Please either email or text me, and we look forward to meeting soon. Please note, work with us does NOT count towards a second year visa extension, nor is it paid work.
Minimum stay is 4 weeks.
If you are travelling to Victoria and want to arrange your position ahead of time, we can do that, so let us know when you will be here and we can advise if we have a position available.
