You would work 4 mornings per week (not weekends) in house cleaning, gardening, and house repairs. I expect a good work attitude, helpful and friendly, and a basic knowledge of english especially common cleaning and building tools (eg broom or hammer). I treat everyone with respect and friendship and I expect the same in return and courtesy to my resident students.

Activities & Shift

I have 2 properties and you would work in either one - basic cleaning duties like vacuuming, cleaning in kitchens and bathrooms and clearing rubbish. Gardening works include grass cutting, tree pruning and weeding. House repair jobs are variable but you would act as my assistant at all times. these could include painting, carpentry, brickwork etc. The work would be more suitable for a male person.


the weekday work commences at 9am and I would wish you to maintain a 10.30pm curfew (weekdays) Weekends you are free to come and go as you wish. Laundry is available once weekly, my full time student rooms are private. Smoking is prohibited inside the houses.
