Live In Housekeeper/Cook job
A delightful family in Pimlico are looking for a Live in Housekeeper/Cook to help them out.

- Family style cooking – healthy dishes
- Ensuring the house runs smoothly – to include grocery shopping and errand running, letting contractors into the house
- Serving ta the table at meal times
- Silver polishing
The family have a holiday home in America. It is a bonus if you wish to travel with them at any point throughout the year in the summer or winter, but not essential. They generally travel in all the school holidays, so if you don’t want to go with them, you will get down time when they are away.
House: 3 bedrooms, 6 storeys
Hours: Monday – Friday, 7.00am – 7.30/8.00pm with breaks in the day to be managed yourself (as family mostly not in during the day)
