Our client, a private family with a residence in Kensington, is now looking to employ a child-friendly, hands-on Housekeeper/Cook.  The clients employ a small team of staff including a PA and a Housekeeper.  The ideal candidate will be multifaceted, happy to be hands-on with the housekeeping (although as noted there is another Housekeeper employed), ideally be tech savvy, and a confident, family style Cook.  There is a small dog within the household.  Preference for the candidate to speak Italian, Portuguese or Tagalog.

Duties include, but are not limited to the below:

  • Hands-on housekeeping alongside the other Housekeeper
  • Keeping the children’s bedrooms and children's areas clean and tidy
  • Accompanying the driver for school pick ups
  • Liaising with Madam re the children's schedules
  • Check and purchase groceries and household supplies to maintain adequate levels

  • Plan and cook evening meals for family
  • Wash dishes and clean kitchen
  • Run errands for employer
  • Answer telephone and take messages
  • Flexible to travel with the family during school holidays for up to four weeks

Hands-on Housekeeping duties are definitely minimal whilst in the London residence, as there is also full-time Housekeeper.  However, would generally be expected to assist her during busy periods and manage the above in order to execute own duties.
