Live in Housekeeping / Cook job in Kensington , London
A gentleman and his two sons in Kensington are looking for a proactive, child friendly, loyal Housekeeper/Cook to help them out. Their current lady of 10 years is leaving and so they are looking for her replacement. You will be able to do a handover.
The two sons are 8 and 10 years old and stay with dad in the evenings every 2nd week. They are at school fulltime during the week. Dad also works fulltime and travels a lot on business so you must be child friendly.
Your daily duties will include thorough and detailed cleaning, laundry, care of delicates and hand washing, ironing to a high standard, grocery shopping (online too), errand running, answering the door, dealing with deliveries, managing the family’s wardrobes and preparing evening meals throughout the week when required to. They typically enjoy simple tasty home cooked meals.
The ideal candidate will have good knowledge of cleaning products as there is lots of expensive art work to care for, an eye for detail and be able to manage their own time throughout the day.
When the children are in the home (every 2nd week) you must be happy to walk with them to the bus stop in the mornings and prepare them breakfast. They will also need picking up weekday evenings at 5pm form the bus stop.
You will not be required to travel with the family on holidays.
House: 4 storeys
Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:00am – 7:00pm with a break in the day.
You must be happy to work approx. 12 Sundays a year just for a few hours. You will of course be paid extra for this or be able to take the time off in lieu.
