Live in Housekeeper/Cook job
A delightful family with school age children in Kensington are looking for a Live in Housekeeper/Cook to join their team. They already employ daily housekeepers, butler/drivers and a full time Live in Nanny.
It is essential you can drive to run errands and do occasional pickups to help out. A car can be provided.
Your duties will include:
- Detailed shared cleaning, laundry & ironing – mostly modern furnishings
- Grocery shopping and restocking of household goods (online)
- Simple home cooked family style meals (the Butlers do breakfast, so only a simple lunch of soup/salad and dinner each day). Sometimes mum or the nanny will cook too or help out.
- You must be happy to travel with the family in Europe in the school holidays for maximum two weeks at a time- this is shared between all the staff.
The ideal candidate will be down to earth, energetic, have a sense of humour, be friendly, a team player and be happy to get stuck into any task given. You will become part of the family and must be dog friendly (small dogs).
