Horse Au-Pair Job in Spain
We are looking for someone who would like to come to Spain (La Cala de Mijas, near to the beach) as an Au-pair from January. Here ([URL="http://http://finca-de-la-luz.jimdo.com"])you can see some pictures of the house, your room, us (me, Claudia and my daughter Georgia (15 years old) and the animals.
What do you have to do?
-feed horses and dogs 2x a day
-clean boxes 1x a day
-ride horses (or take them for a walk)
-help when the horsefood gets delivered
-help fixing fences if the horses brake them
-clean house 1x a week
I know it seems a lot of work, but usually you only need 2h a day. The rest of the day you can go to the beach, go shopping...
The next city from here is 6km away from here. It takes you about 1h to walk there, but you can also use our bike. Of course, we can give you a lift when we are going there too.
What do you get from us?
-you live and eat here for free
-you get to know spain and its culture
You can also invite friends to visit you for 1 or 2 weeks, if they agree to help a little too (for example fixing fences or cleaning saddles).
If you would like to know more about the job, you can send an email to email@example.com or add me as maurer333 on Skype. :)
*le sigh* Drool!
I so wish i could go! WoW. What an opportunity.

Sounds like a slave job to me. Be sure to have enough money set aside to return home if it turns out to be a disaster. The ads always sound good but not reality. How many horses need exercising, stalls cleaned, how many dogs. How big is the house you have to clean once weekly? Fixing fence. Are they in tumble down condition? A 6 mi walk to town. If you decide to leave will they give you a ride or do you have to walk or hitchike with all your possessions. I've met Philipino women who came to Canada with the same promises. Since their way was paid, they are stuck for a year and put in long hours as the threat of a call to Immigration hangs over their head. Check out the laws regarding this matter and labor laws.
Hi :) If you are afraid that you won't be happy here, you can also just spend a month or so with us and decide later on, if you'd like to stay longer or not. We have been having Aupairs over for the last 2-3 years, I'm happy to give you the e-mail adress of one of them so that you can get an objective idea of how it is here. We usually always take aupairs with us, when we are going to the beach or doing anything outside. If you get boren during the day, where we aren't at home, you can always ask one of our neighbours to give you a lift if they are on there way to the town.
Saddlebag is right in some points, if you are someone who needs to go partying every night and wants to go shopping as often as possible, you won't be happy here. During the daytime you might also feel lonely because you are alone for quite a few animals.
The dogs really aren't a lot of work - you just chuck a bit of dry food into their bowls and that's it. The fences are quite a big issue, because our pony (Lucero) keeps on breaking them. At the moment we are trying to replace the wooden parts with metall parts, hopefully it will last a little bit longer that way. You won't have to do extra work - if you are a fast worker, you might finish after an hour or so (I mean, you don't need more than 10min for feeding, mucking out of 3 boxes - shouldn't take more than an hour & the other things you don't even have to do every day), if you prefer to do it relaxed you'll need more or less two.
I hope I've been able to explain everything a bit better. I'll check the request this evening if I find some time. :)
I would really appreciate it if you could send the mail adress of one of your previous au pairs to the skype-account I added you on so that I could have somebody else's opinion too:) Thank you for elaborating!
You probably want to work out of an organized and credible agency with good references and lots of them.
I'd hate to think what could happen to a young girl traveling to an overseas job found on an internet forum.
What the Gunslinger said...better to work under the guidance of some agency!
This to me is nothing but red flags.
Heck, I could send an E-mail with glowing reports on the place & I've never been there. Anyone could do that.
Even if it is for real what would the worker do for money as there is no wage? Sounds like a great way to get stuck in a foreign country.
Remember-stranger/danger. Don't people who take out of country jobs usually find them through real person connections?
