I work from home, near Nobbys Beach (Port Mac) and need face-to-face at least to start with. No school holiday work will be required but if you do want work through those times, it can be arranged once you can work without needing regular direction from me.
Hours are negotiable, but in my mind, we start with 5-10 hours a week. We have excellent potential to increase if that’s what you want. It depends on your learning curve, initiative and how effective the work you do is. (The more effective your work, the more the business grows. As the business grows, so do the number of things I can get you to help with, and of course the funds available to pay you from will grow too!)
Honesty and integrity are key values of mine and I am looking for someone like-minded to come join the team. The business is growing and I am loving the adventure, do you want to come for the ride?
