Hi all,

Can anyone recommend where to advertise for semi-retirees that may want work as they travel?

We are looking for an experienced builder/handyman and wondered if we fill our vacancy with someone who was travelling and maybe wanted a few months work at a time. It could be a full time position in all seriousness but probably more suitable for a more casual set up.

I've looked on Gumtree and they likes of some other websites but our location is 3 hours south of Adelaide and I find Gumtree has huge success for backpackers from overseas and that is not necessarily the right person for the job ...

This isn't trying to be an advert so I shan't put loads of info on but more a plea for help from the great travelling masses that requent this forum!!

Thanks in advance!

Have a look here here where you will find a lot of grey nomads looking for work.

Thanks for that - I had googled most things but had forgotten to try the well used term - grey nomads!

Will see what it brings up.

Hi Al,

Sorry I didn't put much info as wasn't sure what was allowed - I'm not selling anything but it is still advertising!

We're three hours south of Adelaide - basically on the edge of the Ngarkat Conservation Park if you've done much 4 wd!!

We're looking for someone with some building experience to do odd jobs, painting, some gardening, maybe fencing of gardens etc.

Flexible on amount of time but probably 1 mth plus up to 8 mths ish - really it could be full time but it depends on the person and whether they could find other stuff to do when not busy with the main jobs. Could be a couple too ... as I said we're flexible.

Would probably be best if the applicants had own accommodation but we could obviously supply power, sheltered site etc.

This is a new position so there isn't a job spec as such so if I can provide any more info please let me know.

Finding a lot of the websites seem to be out of date or perhaps not even in use anymore ... if anyone has any printed publications suggestions I would be very grateful.

Thanks!
