London, Notting Hill, Salary circa £38,000-£50,000 per annum
This is a super new role for an experienced Housekeeper / Nanny who has gained experience working within a large residence and has a fine eye for detail.
The family fairly recently relocated to London from USA and are moving into their new residence in Notting Hill in August. Both parents are very successful in their relative businesses and require a Housekeeper / Nanny to assist their current Housekeeper who has been with them some 10+ years. The children, aged 10 (girl) and 13 (boy), attend an International School in St John's Wood and have many activities in which they participate after school hours. Flexibility to your duties is the key to this role.
A lovely welcoming family, who have a Private Chef and PA, travel frequently in the school holidays so tend to be overseas for Easter, Summer and Christmas which is time that you can step back and just keep an eye on the property during their absence.
The father travels regularly to USA so they require an experienced pair of hands in assisting with the children - getting them ready for school and organising their activities.
A usual day would be assisting with children pre-school, then working with the current Housekeeper to clean, tidy and do laundry. After school, taking the children to activities, ensuring homework is completed. If the family are entertaining, you may be required to assist on occasion. This is a hands-on role and someone who is genuinely flexible in attitude, level-headed and a positive attitude.
Driver would be a bonus but not essential.
You may be required to assist during a weekend if father is away - just for a few hours.
A good 'all rounder' who is happy working with children and likes dogs as they have just acquired a puppy.
Accommodation provided - a super one bed flat, which is 2 minutes walk from the main residence.
Days of work: Monday to Friday (flexibility to work a few hours at the weekend if family in residence)
Hours of work: varied
Salary: depending on experience circa £38,000-£50,000
