Our new clients, a lovely family of four, are looking for a live in housekeeper with good cooking skills. The family have recently moved to their five-bedroom house in Barnes, London and they would be happy to provide a separate accommodation with a separate entrance, a private bedroom, a bathroom, a microwave and a fridge. A kitchen will be shared with the family temporarily and a separate kitchen will be set up later.
The chosen housekeeper will be expected to run the household smoothly and keep the family house clean and organised at all times. The family enjoy Asian, British and Italian cuisine so you should feel confident about your cooking skills. Also, we are seeking domestic helper, who is dog-friendly as there is a super friendly and lovely standard Poodle dog at the property. One of your responsibilities will be walking the dog four times per week after breakfast.
The family have two children aged 5 and 7. The parents are available to take them to school, pick them up, do all afterschool activities and they do not need a nanny but a housekeeper will be expected to make dinner for the children and supervise them eating. Occasionally the parents go out for a dinner after putting the children to bed around 7pm-7:30pm so they would expect a housekeeper to stay home on these days for secure. In addition, the family would be happy if you could do some babysitting on Saturday evenings occasionally, however, it is not their strong requirement and they could find a babysitter as well.
The principals are flexible within working hours. You could chose to start at 7:15am and help them with breakfast or start around 9:30am. The family are friendly and pleasant to communicate so they are open to discuss all the details with the right candidate.
