    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Probably worth more that the 500 stated. The consultancy will take a cut as well.

    No accommodation fees and £2k net minimum a month?

    That's £31200 gross plus accommodation!! add minimum £500 a month for that to that and its bloody nearly £40k!!
    For a manual labourer!

    I think we have unrealistic expectations of what paid work really is if you think that is "money's worth"

    its the reason we have 2.4m unemployed and 1.2m doleys who are too good for the 4-600,000 jobs that are advertised daily

    I am in total agreement with you, a damned good package if you ask me.
    Well done to the OP for putting this up, it might help someone looking for a job.
    Cheers

    Those "duties" sound like the jobs an average husband/parent have to do when they get home from work for their own home anyway.
    dont forget about train fare/fuel/parking/ to travel to work.

    Average travel time is probably another 10hours per week (unpaid).

    £8.9 an hour for being a chauffeur, nanny, gardener/grounds keeper and a handyman plus being on call. and no mention about holidays. so one person to do that of 4 to 5 persons.

    what year was this advert from. 1900's

    guess it will be another job for an overseas worker
