( 45094 ) Lovely family with 2 children in prep school need the help of an experienced housekeeper with great common sense to help look after them and their home.

This is the family’s main residence. We are looking for someone who is proactive, discrete and who is happy to be flexible in their duties and hours.

  • Helping with simple fresh and healthy family cooking for up to 10 people. When the numbers are greater it is a catered event  with additional waiting staff.
