Live in Housekeeping job in Chelsea , London


A friendly family in Chelsea are looking for a proactive, switched on Housekeeper/Cook to help them out. The couple have a 10 year old at home and two older children aged 15 and 13 at boarding school. Grandma also lives with the family in her own part of the house.


Your duties will include:

  • preparing breakfast

  • cleaning, laundry & ironing

  • preparing a very light lunch for the grandmother

  • preparing the evening meal for the family


Once dinner is cleared away you are free to finish. They typically enjoy simple healthy dishes and will try anything. They are happy for you to follow recipes.


You will need to wear a simple uniform. The ideal candidate will be friendly, discreet, positive, professional, organised, self-reliant and able to use your initiative. You will be in charge of ensuring the house runs smoothly at all times as mum and dad are both at work in the day.


The family travel to their home in the countryside on weekends and they also have homes in the South of France and Switzerland. You must be happy to travel with them occasionally, usually just for a few weeks in the summer, but all houses are fully staffed so this will be mainly light cleaning.


House: 5 bedrooms, 5 storeys


Hours: Monday – Friday, 7.00am – 7.30pm with breaks in the day. You can arrange these yourselves as you will be home alone.


Accommodation: Your own private ensuite bedroom and bathroom, basement level with your own separate entrance.


Salary: £30,000 - £35,000 gross per annum (approx. £450 - £500 net per week)


Start: Immediately
