Our clients in Surrey (Guildford) are looking for a full-time Housekeeper to work alongside their Head Housekeeper, assisting mainly with the children’s housekeeping as well as some occasional babysitting.

The position can be live-in or live-out.  The family is looking for a calm, warm-hearted, and discreet Housekeeper who has experience with young children (whether that be experience of having their own children or caring for children as part of a previous role) and is a good cook, tidy and organised, and happy to travel.  A Spanish speaker would be ideal.

The duties include but are not limited to:

  • All aspects of housekeeping throughout the residence but with duties related to the children as a priority – the children’s laundry, their bedroom, their bathroom, the playroom, cleaning the prams, the toys, their car seats, cleaning up after their meals
  • 10% of the role would be childcare duties – most of the time you’ll only be required to keep an eye on the baby monitor or play with the 9-month-old whilst the female principal is on the school run (around 30 minutes)
  • Children’s cooking – knowledge of preparing healthy, nutritious meals is essential (occasionally cooking for the parents also – knowledge of South American cuisine would be a real bonus)
  • Travelling with the family (the family have a residence in London and spend the summer in NYC)

The family employ a Head Housekeeper so your sole focus will be on the children’s housekeeping, but you must be a team player who is willing to help as/where is needed when required.

It is essential candidates applying for this position understand the boundaries that come with working within a private household – knowing when to step back etc.

Essential skills required:

  • DBS and First Aid
  • Driver
  • Spanish speaker

Location: Surrey
Contract Length: Permanent (live-out/in)
Start Date: ASAP
Working Hours: Full-time, Monday – Friday
Additional Benefits: Accommodation and use of a car (accommodation is a private bedroom and bathroom on the top floor of the residence - the family don't use this floor so you would have privacy)
Salary: Circa £50,000
