Live In Housekeeping / Cook job in Marylebone , London
An elderly lady living in Marylebone is looking for an experienced Housekeeper/Cook to help her in her home.
Your role will be:
General housekeeping, cleaning, laundry, ironing
Grocery shopping and running errands
You must be able to cook daily meals for the lady and she enjoys simple dishes such as grilled chicken and vegetables. This house is strictly kosher so someone with experience working in similar households would be a great bonus, although she is also happy to show and teach you if need be.
You will also help to lay the table, serve and clear up after her weekly Friday night family dinners.
You must also be flexible to occasionally work on a weekend when a Jewish holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, to help with serving and cleaning up after dinners.
The ideal candidate for this role will be very organised, looking for a long term position and be happy to be a friendly companion to the lady.
The lady has recently had two large operations and so has carers in and out at the moment and for the next couple of months too. You will have a buzzer, and so if called you must be flexible to attend to her, even on your days off in case of an emergency only though, until she is better. Her daughter also stays over in the property 3 nights per week.

Hours: 4.5 day week plus 3 hours on a Saturday morning (until 10.00am)

You will have Wednesday afternoons off, Saturdays off from 10.00am off, and all day Sunday off. You must be back home in the property by 9.00pm on a Sunday evening.
Days will start at 6.45am to bring the lady her coffee and to make her breakfast. Then you can sit and have your own breakfast and then start the housekeeping from 8am – 1pm. After lunch you are free to take a long break in the afternoon and in the evenings you will be required to cook an evening meal. During your working week, during the afternoons, you must be happy to stay in the home or very local whilst she is still recovering from her operations.
