Job Description

We have a fabulous opportunity available for you!

We are a family consisting of myself (Mum), Dad and 3 kids and we live on a majestic 7 acres of land in Myocum, 10 minutes out of Byron Bay. Our gardens are lush and magical and we have fruit trees and veggie gardens, chickens and a little dog Ziggy and a beautiful cat named Coco.

We need roughly 18 hours of help each week. In exchange we are offering free accomodation, food from our abundant garden for your own use, free wifi, electricity, gas and water.

Hours will mostly vary from week to week and we are happy to work around your availability if you have a second job.

Occasionally we may require you for additional hours and we will pay you your hourly rate per hour for any additional hours worked.

You will have your own very private studio accommodation, separate from the house, your own kitchen and bathroom, aircon, heater etc. We have a pool that you are welcome to use whenever you like. We are happy to consider a couple for this role.

It is best if you have your own car as you may need to drive kids occasionally. Public transport isn’t available near our house.

We have had 4 lovely au pairs over the years who have become very good friends of ours. We treat our helper as part of the family.

We prefer someone with experience looking after kids, First Aid, Police Check, Working With Children Check all preferred. Non-smoker.

Our kids are lovely and very energetic. One of our kids is quite challenging so we need someone who is able to be quite firm and strong.
