Housekeeper / Family Help / PA Job

(49137) This job is a unique role for someone who is able to combine both Housekeeping experience with some basic administrative duties for a busy family home in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The family have 3 children (boys 10 and under) and are moving to Shrewsbury from London in July. They are looking for a Housekeeper who is child friendly and who is also able to help with some home office based work for the fathers business. Both mum and dad combine working from home and travelling to London so there will be some very occasional times when you will need to stay over to look after the children.


The role will be ideally split into two parts, however there is a lot of flexibility for the right candidate.


The ideal candidate will be looking for a full-time role working Monday to Friday and working 10am to 6pm (although again this is flexible but a 6pm finish in important). The morning would involve doing some internet based research for the fathers business and some data input so you must be computer literate. This part of the role could also develop depending on the candidate. Some general admin and PA duties might also be involved for example. This would make up an estimated 2-3 hours per day.


The second part of the role is the Housekeeping side of the job and again, there is a possibility that extra help can be drafted in if the office side of the role grows over time. The Housekeeper role will be hands on cleaning, laundry and ironing for the family as well as some basic family cooking, help with the school pick up (very local), running errands and help with afterschool child care.


The family employ staff in London but are looking for someone who can be flexible and who can start this role with them and see how it grows over time. They are very realistic in what can be achieved in the day so really it will be a case of seeing who fits into the role and working around their abilities and capabilities and then drafting in extra help in different areas if and when needed. Local family members can also help with some of the cooking and childcare for example.
