Live in Housekeeping job in Kingston – Upon – Thames , London
A couple and their two young children are seeking an efficient, child friendly, mature Housekeeper to help them out. Dad works fulltime and mum is looking to go back to work but is currently around. The children are aged 3 and 5 and they attend the local school and nursery.
Mum does the morning school run so your day will begin with preparing breakfast, and making the beds/tidying the bedrooms & house. You will need to start the laundry and do the daily cleaning, but will not expected to spring clean the whole house each day as you will only have the mornings to do this. The youngest boy finishes nursery at 12.15pm each day and so you will occasionally have to pick him up if mum is not available. You must be able to drive and a car can be provided. The daughter’s school is just 800m form the family home and when the boy starts school he will also go very local (walking distance).
Your afternoons will involve child minding, running errands, and taking the children to activities or the soft play area and then cooking dinner just for the children. You will be required to help get the children ready for bed by 7pm, then you are free to finish. This is when mum will cook for the couples evening meal.
You must be confident answering the front door, liaising with contractors and doing the online shopping. The ideal candidate will be able to help discipline the children, will be self-motivated, flexible and able to manage their own routine with no prompting from mum and dad.
