Great Australian beach life close to Byron Bay : Looking for Content writer for a Health related Website

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHi there,

    We are a young family of 4 living in the beautiful Northern Rivers of New South Wales Australia, in a small coastal town called Pottsville which is 30 minutes north of the iconic beach town Byron Bay and 25 minutes south of the world famous Gold Coast.

    Originally from the UK my wife and I have 2 little children both under 3 and have been living in paradise since early 2012.

    Our home is situated in an Eco village (no cats and dogs) and was created to support the local wildlife including Koalas, Wallabies and some beautiful birds amongst everything else Australia has to offer. Our home is surrounded by bush land giving that remote feeling despite having neighbours on both sides and we are just 3 minutes perhaps the most beautiful stretch of beach you will ever see.

    We are an outgoing family who love the outdoors, locally there are wonderful parks with clean BBQs and places to simply relax, plus coffee shops galore and enough scenic walks to last you a lifetime.

    Our home is a largish open plan space with a lovely deck that backs on to forest, it has 4 bedrooms one of which is spare (Yours)

    From here we run a new start up company that is focused in the health market which includes food, drink, skincare, etc all of which is made with Natural ingredients.

    We are looking for someone with creative skills that is able to help us with our websites content, this will include blogs, product descriptions and other from time to time also. This person should be happy to work from a cool, calm office which is located in the building but outside of the main living area.

    There will be set a daily task list to complete and offered support throughout. It's likely your 5 hour day will begin at 7am finishing at 12 Monday - Friday.

    There is also a bus service that runs through Pottsville that can get you to most places.

    We live in perhaps the most beautiful part of the Southern Hemisphere. 30 minutes from the alternative relaxed hippy lifestyle and stunning beaches Byron Bay has to offer and in the other direction 30 minutes from the wonderful stretch of beach and city life that the Gold Coast equally boasts. To the West of us is lush tropical rainforest and countryside towns which you will be able to explore.
