We are seeking 1-2 people, preferably a couple, to work for 20 hours per week, in exchange for accommodation/board in a family home set on 4 acres in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We are a family of 5 (children are teenagers) and we live in a recently built house, with a few outstanding DIY jobs which need to be done, in addition to general gardening work - weeding, mulch spreading, planting, wood chopping, burning off etc, and perhaps some assistance with cleaning. We really need people who can use a chainsaw, ride on mower, and those who are not scared of heavy garden work. You will be living in the house with us, with your own room with a queen sized bed, shared bathroom and living area with TV/netflix/free Wifi. We also have a pool - although a bit cold to use at the moment. Own transport ideal, but not essential - walking distance to bus stop, 15 minutes to train station and 30 minutes train to the city. We are a busy family, although with Covid-19 all at home more than usual, but will happily enjoy an evening meal with you - breakfast and lunch is self catered. We are flexible with dates and looking for help for a couple of weeks depending on how things work out. We are also happy for our helpers to do 8 hours work one day, and not work the following day if you would prefer. We have had a few groups of backpackers in the past, and have found the arrangement mutually beneficial - you can use us as a base whilst looking for other work in Melbourne/Australia. Please enquire with any questions.
