Live in Housekeeper / Cook job
A delightful couple in Holland Park are seeking a proactive and friendly Housekeeper/Cook to help them out. The family of 4 is Mum, Dad and their 2 sweet school aged children (9+13). Both parents work from home and to complete the family they also have a lovely little dog. Although they do not employ anyone else at the moment, they might consider hiring a part time cleaner in the future if needed. Please note that their daughter can eat only gluten free dishes and the family generally enjoy Indian food. The parents create a weekly plan with the duties for the actual week and you will need to follow these instructions with managing your own time efficiently.
Your daily duties will include:
Preparing breakfast in the morning
Daily cleaning, laundry and ironing
Sole charge of children if Mum is away
School pick-ups (occasionally)
Arranging and taking kids to activities (occasionally)
Organising the home
Cooking for the whole family
Assisting with small dinner parties
Bonus: light PA duties
You will not be required to travel with the family but you will instead need to house/dog sit.
The ideal candidate will know their boundaries, be discreet but warm and friendly, go out of their way, be proactive, use their own initiative, be caring and a competent cook and ideally be confident in preparing Indian meals and/or be happy to follow the family’s recipes.
Driving is a bonus but is not essential part of this position.
