A lovely family based in Notting Hill are looking for a permanent fun and dynamic Cook / Nanny from July onwards for a family of 5: 2 adults and 3 children (5, 9 and 11). This would be an excellent opportunity for someone looking for their first private household position working in a great environment. They ultimately want someone who can produce tasty gluten free, dairy free and sugar free meals; someone who can be creative and passionate about this kind of cooking. The client is influential in the wellness and nutrition industry so this is of great importance to them.
You will prepare breakfast and dinner for the children as they are all at school during the day. The adults only eat with the children at the weekends so it would be up to you to oversee their meal times and make sure they have a healthy diet during the week.
You would not need to cook breakfast for the adults as such but if you could prepare a healthy option in advance that would be ideal: freshly made granola, power bars, cut up grapefruit or any other exciting treats! They both work from home during the day and would only need a very simple lunch: soup or a chopped salad. You would prepare a healthy supper for them 3 times a week as they do eat out. They have guests on average once per week.
As the children are now a little older they do not need a full time nanny but our client would like someone who can ensure they are getting their homework done, eating their supper and perhaps getting a little creative with a game or puzzle when they get home from school. They believe in strong love; manners are very important to them.
Working hours are flexible but would generally be 7am – 7pm. As the children are at school all day it is up to you how you organise day and take time off to pursue other interests.
The family travel a lot and would like the cook / nanny to go with them. They tend to go to Klosters / Bahamas at Christmas, Bahamas at Easter, North America and Canada in for the summer as well as short trips to New York and Ireland. They would need to be a little bit more flexible with their schedule during these periods.
