Stonesoup Is Hiring!

Oh Jules! You job is just perfect… but I am just too far away to apply for it. If you decided to go global and expand … I will be the first one to apply. Good luck and best wishes!

Hey Jules! I am a Stonesoup subscriber & did not know you were based in Australia. In our travels everyone we met from there was perfectly lovely! After reading your job description I want to move there, but we are firmly entrenched in the Midwest in the U.S. Good luck with your search!

Hi Jules!

I’ve just read about your need for a PA. Look no further, I’m your girl!

Keep an eye out for an email from me in the next day or so.

Looking forward to chatting about wonderful possibilities!

Hi I live in Canberra with lots of time on my hands. I am a fun loving dancing grandmother. I see my grandkids only 3 or 4 times a year. So I am out dancing either at classes or around town 3 or 4 times a week, just love it. Facebook is fun also but would love to be more helpful to people. I do not really need a paid job but would love to help out if you need it. Also we are nearly finished renovating and I have a house I can share if you come to Canberra. 02 62545907

I wish you could have posted this last year whilst I was still living in Canberra. I was a stay at home dad for a year with tons of free time at my disposal. This would have been a perfect opportunity.

What a fabulous opportunity in a thriving (& increasingly competitive) market where you’ve carved out a great niche. Congratulations on your expansion!

awwww!! Germany.

If you decide you need someone stateside…I’m in western New York and would adore the opportunity. I love food, nutrition, and (your) recipes (your my go-to when I’m looking for nutritious, quick and reliable).
If you’d be willing to expand your parameters, I’m willing and able to do what you’re looking for.
