Live in Housekeeping job, Little Venice , Central London
A couple who are moving in to their newly refurbished Victorian home in July are seeking a super child friendly, meticulous, efficient Housekeeper to join their team. Mum works fulltime and dad is retired and works from home and they have an 11 month old daughter and friendly Labrador dog.
Dad likes to walk the dog in the mornings and also to cook the family’s daily meals so you will not be required to do so. They currently employ a full-time nanny that works 5 days a week 7:00am-7:00pm, Monday – Friday, a fulltime driver that does some additional duties including dry-cleaning errands, last minute food shopping, errands, etc, and a fulltime live out Housekeeper that will be working alongside you, but now only part time hours (3-4 hours every weekday morning) as she has been with the family for over 20 years.
In addition to the daily shared housekeeping duties, the couple require someone that is comfortable with babysitting duties in the evenings when needed.
The ideal candidate will be flexible with their weekly hours. If mum and dad are out, you will required to settle the daughter if she wakes and check in on her before you go to sleep. You will be able to keep a baby monitor in your room on those evenings. Your self-contained accommodation is on the floor above their daughter’s bedroom.
The family like to travel and have a summer home in Spain that they often travel to, including for one month in the summer. The nanny is required to travel with them so you would stay in London and house sit or take your holidays (they can be flexible).
The ideal candidate will be flexible, methodical, well presented, take pride in their work & the homes appearance, be excellent at communicating and be caring.
House: 5 bedrooms, 5 storeys
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, working hours are flexible, starting at 7:00am.
Your daily duties will vary depending on the family’s schedule. Sometimes you will finish by 1:00pm, other days later if babysitting, but you will of course have a long break in the afternoon. When they are travelling you must be able to manage your own days and hours. The couple are relaxed on hours as long as your duties are completed and you can be flexible when needed to baby sit occasionally.
Accommodation: Your own brand new private self-contained large bedroom and bathroom with terrace and kitchenette (including fridge, microwave and dishwasher).
