A friendly couple and their two sons aged 4 and 7 years old are seeking a well presented, dynamic, discreet, pro-active, loving Housekeeper/Cook to help them out.
Your daily duties will include the cleaning, laundry ironing all to a very high standard. You must have a great eye for detail and take pride in your work. The Victorian home has been refurbished and has modern décor and there is expensive furniture, artwork and delicate surfaces such as marble to care for.
In the mornings, you must prepare breakfast ready for the boys who mum wakes up. They typically enjoy pancakes. You must be happy to help get them ready and out the door for school which they attend fulltime from 8.30am – 4.30pm. Mum works both from home and outside, plus dad travels a lot with his. Mum does the school runs and activity runs so when the children are home from school you must have dinner ready for them at 5.30pm and then help them get ready for bed by 7.00pm. The children follow a routine so you must be happy implementing this alongside mum and dad.
Additional weekly duties will include errand running, managing the wardrobes meticulously, grocery shopping, reading the children stories when needed and you must be technology savvy as the home has iPad’s to control lighting and so on.
