Carpenter handyman for Glamping project on Kos

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHandyman / Carpenter for obstacle course on Kos, Greece
    We are a young family operating a new glamping resort on Kos island
    This was our first season, (opened on the 1st of July ) we are now planning to shut down by the end of October for winter. When we opened, after the lockdown for corona, we were only partly ready and in the next 6 months we plan to set up 5 more tents and communal bathrooms to complete the campsite.
    We will have our hands full with the tents and landscaping and need / hope to find an extra helping hand with carpentry experience. A handy man who will help us set up our obstacle course. (attached file) This obstacle course, we believe will provide joy and challenges to our young guests. It will complete our vision of activities we offer.
    We can provide accommodation and meals, assist with local transport, and if need be a very basic wage. In exchange of 25 to 27.5 hours of work a week
    If the volunteer is able to bring tools we will assist with transportation costs.
    We estimate that with the help of a worker / assistant which we can provide and at an easy pace it should not take more than a month to complete. This project can happen anytime from November to April, naturally we would prefer to see it completed not at the last moment, but the time window is open enough to hopefully suit someone
    The applicant is welcome to stay longer if they wish, The winter on Kos is wet and cold but autumn and spring are wonderful. Exploring Kos and neighboring islands is rather special.
