This is a small business - I have 2 homes with 4 or 5 rooms occupied throughout the year. - Most of my tenants are international students and usually post graduate researchers. usually they are very busy with their research work but occasionally they are happy to have a coffee and chat. if you prefer a quieter place instead of a hostel then this could be good placement for you. You would be working partly by yourself and partly with me in a variety of different jobs - apart from basic cleaning - the jobs would vary day to day. I do my own painting and decorating carpentry, electrical and , plus a variety of gardening jobs from weeding to tree pruning. The basic cleaning work would be done by yourself but all other work you would be required to be my assistant.
I am partly retired and have worked in renting rooms in my 2 houses for over 25 years and have much experience. I also have a second job which is to manage a Digital Music Studio - where my main work is as an audio technician to edit and clean audio recordings both speech and music. Normally you will work between 16 and 20 hours per week and your accommodation would be part shared (4 days per week) and partly single room (3 days per week). You would be provided with full meals and services. Breakfast, snack lunch and cooked evening meal 7 days weekly. Plus internet service in both houses and laundry. I also teach english and spend many evening hours in helping my volunteer assistants to learn how to speak well and increase their vocabulary. I also practise and teach meditation.
Every thing was perfect
The work is pretty easy
Just cleaning and helping Dave with dishes and cooking
Oxford is a nice city to go for long walks and you can entertain yourself with the many museums they have, so you won’t get bored.
The food is absolutely amazing!!!! Dave is a really really great cook, you can’t miss his curry or chocolate cake !!
That’s something I’ll definitely miss :( haha
You will also have the best conversation with him, he’s a really wise man
I’m definitely looking forward to go back to oxford as soon as I can
It’s been a real pleasure
Thank you Dave
