Live in Child friendly Housekeeper / Cook job
A delightful British couple in their early 70’s and their small Shetland sheepdog, are looking for a down to earth, friendly child friendly Housekeeper/Cook to help them out. The couple reside in ‘Hampstead Garden Suburb’, a 5 minute walk to ‘High Road’ where there is a high street with shops and restaurants and a 5 minute walk with private foot path access to ‘East Finchley tube station’.
The lady is an interior designer and the apartment is beautifully designed. There is a 24 hour porter service and the apartment backs onto a stunning vast area of landscape gardens. The area is peaceful, quiet and there is little traffic! They have a 15 month old granddaughter who lives nearby and their daughter is expecting her second child in August. They are a close family so you will see lots of the grandchildren.
Your duties will include:
Light housekeeping – cleaning, laundry & ironing
Light Cooking- simple British dishes such as pasta, salads, eggs, roasts
Dog walking & feeding
Assisting with childcare duties when the grandchildren visit (very often)
You must be able to drive. The couple have a variety of cars including a Nissan, Lexus and Range Rover. They would love someone who is confident enough to learn to drive one or all of them or who has experience driving larger cars, for running simple errands and taking family members or grandchildren to appointments/playdates. They are very family orientated.
The couple also employ a part time cleaner/ironing lady that you will work alongside. The ideal candidate will be part of the family, even invited to family lunches etc., child friendly and looking for longevity.
