What's more our team member get paid from the moment they arrive at the first client's property and continue to get paid until they leave the last client's property - so they are being paid even when travelling between jobs!

All our positions are flexible and part time meaning our team members can earn money whilst still enjoying the benefits of life in France.  Remember we all moved here for the same reason.
