This position will be as a work exchange plus a Brazilian salary.

 

This role includes cooking, cleaning, washing, juicing, preparing the property and accommodation spaces for guests and generally ensuring the property maintains it’s fresh, clean, creative, and unique vibe.

Both positions may also be required to help host and manage WWOOFERS (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) and visitors/guests to the property in the absence of the main coordinators.

 

Additional Requirements

-We require you to be available and willing to stay on the land to provide the owner with the flexibility to be away for periods of time and trust that the property is taken care of in her absence.

 

Additional Comments

– We are looking for like-minded people with an open, flexible, down to earth attitude and approach to life. We are therefore open to accepting applicants wanting to contribute to the creative, spiritual, wellness-related activities taking place on the property under the proviso that it does not interfere with their regular tasks.

–          On site accommodation and help with transport to town for food shopping will be provided

–          A basic allowance for food and other expenses, which will be discussed upon receipt of your application remembering that we are a poor town in the centre of Brazil and wages here are very low so we need to be aware of this.

–          Wireless Internet access is available and there are hot water showers

–          The local town offers plenty of amenities – restaurants, shops, internet cafes, laundry etc. but you would need your own car to come and go from the house or you can use local taxis/moto taxis.

–          Access to our stunning large rock mineral water pool, yoga temple and traditional Finnish sauna.

–          Due to our focus on being eco-friendly and sustainable, living conditions may be considered simple, but comfortable. You will use dry toilets, which we consider a more evolved way of dealing with our own “organic matter”.
