Housekeeper / Mothers Help job York North Yorkshire
(48574) A busy family home is looking for an experienced Housekeeper / Mothers Help to help run the home smoothly. The family have 7 children aged between 16 and 1 and Mum and Dad are both very hands on. The three eldest children will all be at boarding school by September and two of the younger children will be at day school just leaving the 1 year old at home during the day. The family are relaxed ad laid back and need a Housekeeper who can fit into their home while remaining professional at all times.
The role will be a mix of hands on cleaning, laundry and ironing and the candidate needs to be flexible and able to adapt depending on the needs of each day. The family are very realistic in terms of what they ask of the Housekeeper, in the summer holidays for instance if you are asked to help more with the children then it is not expected that the Housekeeping all gets done! Really you are going to be an extra pair of hands to help Mum and Dad also with errands, school runs (boarding school in Derbyshire), shopping and organising the home. This role will suit someone who can manage their own time, be proactive and work without being managed. You will also be dealing with traded and contractors as needed.
The family would consider also taking on some part-time help with the cleaning if needed although the current housekeeper who is retiring has found it all manageable.
The family also have two dogs who live outside who you may need to help with. When the family go away then it would also be very helpful if you were able to travel with them or house sit.
This is a lovely semirural location just of the ring road and near to the Monks Cross Shopping centre. A driver is essential and a car is provided for work use.
The working week will normally be Monday to Friday with occasional weekends – based around a 40 hour week and the exact working hours are flexible depending on the candidate although it would be helpful if the Housekeeper is around for tea time at 6pm.
