Hampshire, Alton, Salary £500-£550 net per week
Our Clients, who have recently moved into their Alton, Hampshire residence, are actively looking for a live-out Housekeeper/Cook/Nanny. The residence is 7,000 sq ft, although only 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms are used on a regular basis.
They require a top level Housekeeper who is a good Cook (healthy and nutritious family meals), and is comfortable and experienced looking after children (they have three young children - 7 years old and twins turning 5 so they will from September go to school from 9.00am to 3.00pm).
It is key that you are proactive, set your own schedule, are willing on occasion to stay in residence to look after the children if the parents are away - so in short, someone who can be flexible with their days and hours to work around the family. 5 days per week which can be Tuesday to Saturday, Sunday to Thursday, or a combination which works for you, and the same with the hours.
A fine eye for detail and using your initiative to know when to descale the kettle or polish the silver without having to be asked - again a matter of setting your own schedule and procedures to ensure the house is kept to a high standard and run smoothly.
Currently the family have two cats but may well be acquiring a puppy once they have settled into their new home.
Duties to include:
Housekeeping to a high standard
Childcare - kind and engaged with the children
Bathing the children and help putting them to bed
Occasionally staying overnight
Collecting children from school, taking to activities
Cook nutritious and balanced family meals
Working days - 5 days per week (flexible as to which days)
Hours of work - circa 40 hours per week - can be flexible within reason - ideally afternoon/early evenings.
Salary: £500 - £550 net per week
