Live in Housekeeping / Cook job in St Johns Wood


A lady and her two children are looking for a friendly Housekeeper/Cook to help them out. Their current lady is relocating back home abroad, so they are looking for someone to start as soon as possible. You must be looking for longevity.


The daughter is aged 12 and son 9 and mum is around in the afternoons to take care of them - so you will not need to do any nannying.


The house is modern and you will be required to take care of the daily housekeeping to maintain it. You must be able to use your own initiative, create your own routines and schedules. You must be confident answering the front door, handling deliveries, liaising with contractors and communicating well with mum. Your daily duties will be cleaning, laundry, ironing, managing wardrobes and ensuring the home runs smoothly. You must be happy to do simple family cooking in the evening.


The ideal person will be patient, discreet, understanding and have lots of common sense.


House: 3 storeys, 4 bedrooms


Hours: 5 day week & then 5.5 day week, rotating each week.

*Days of work are Monday-Friday and every other Saturday. The two weeks where you work Saturdays, you can take half a day off on Monday morning to compensate.

*Days are based around a 12 hour shift with breaks in the day- to be managed yourself.


Accommodation: Your own lovely private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen in the basement level of the home with your own separate entrance. You also have access to the children’s playroom next door in the evenings with TV.


Salary: £Negotiable


Start: Immediately


Vacancy Number: 47725
