Live out Housekeeper / Cook job in Aldgate, London


A lovely family living in Aldgate is looking for a flexible Housekeeper to support their family on a permanent basis. They predominantly spend their time in London, however, they do have a countryside home, near Sussex, where you will be required to work from time to time (mainly school holidays/weekends). The couple has 2 sweet children aged 3.5 and 1.5 years old and a cat and some turtles complete the family which are kept on their countryside property.

The family already employs a Housekeeper on each property and Nanny who looks after the kids. There is no direct childcare related duties involved in your role but it would be advantageous if you were child friendly. This is a relaxed, down to Earth family but they require high standards from their staff.


Should you be required to spend a longer continuous period in their countryside property there is an option to live in and they would be able to provide you with accommodation in their guest room.

  • Cleaning

  • Laundry and ironing

  • Hand washing delicate garments

  • Cooking simple healthy dishes – mainly for the children

  • Helping with occasional small, casual dinner parties in their countryside home

  • Care of fine furniture and paintings

  • Grocery shopping and other small errands


The ideal candidate will be looking for longevity, be proactive, child and pet friendly and have complete flexibility about their duties and working schedules.
