Live in Cook/Housekeeper job


A semi-formal household in Kensington are looking for a smart, experienced, hardworking Cook/Housekeeper to help them out. The ideal candidate will be able to manage their own time, be able to run the house and be smiley, discreet and positive.


Mum and dad both work fulltime (mum has a home office), and they have 3 children, a 19 year old girl who is currently studying abroad in America, and 12.5 year old twins. They also have a family dog.


They already employ another live in Housekeeper who you will work alongside who does additional housekeeping to you whilst you are cooking. They are also looking to hire an additional part time Housekeeper.

  • 1 short dog walk a day at lunchtime. A dog walker also takes it out in the mornings and mum once more in the afternoon (so 3 in total).

You will be required to occasionally travel with the family in the school holidays. They have a property in Ibiza, Courchevel and Istanbul.
