Live in Housekeeping / Cook job in Westbourne Park , London


Our client in Notting Hill is looking for a lovely, warm Housekeeper/Cook to help his family out. The family’s current Housekeeper has been with them for 8 years but is now leaving to go back home abroad.

The couple have two children aged 10 and 8. Mum and Dad both work fulltime and also travel frequently during the working week for business. If both happen to be away at any one time, then you are still free to do as you wish in the evenings but must stay in the property as a presence in the home for the children (only Monday-Friday).


Your daily duties will include:

  • Preparing breakfast

  • Organising the house – general cleaning, laundry & ironing

  • Mum & Dad do the morning school run but on the occasion they are both travelling you must be able to do this – plus 3 school pickups a week – they have an uber account for you to use and also a local taxi firm

  • Make sure the children sit down to do their homework – you do not need to help but simply make sure they remember to do it

  • Cooking an evening family meal (Mum & Dad put the children to bed). They typically enjoy meat, vegetables and have lots of printed recipes for the housekeeper to try.


The ideal candidate will be flexible, child friendly and happy to travel in the school holidays in Europe.


House: 4 storeys


Hours: Monday – Friday, 7am – 7pm with a break in the day. **You must be able to go elsewhere/home on your days off as the family enjoy their own privacy**


Accommodation: Your own lovely private bedroom, bathroom and T.V. on the 2nd floor – away from the rest of the family


Salary: £450 net per week


Vacancy Number: 47273


Start: April
