London, Ladbroke Grove, Salary £550-£600 net per week
Our clients, who reside a few minutes' walk from Ladbroke Grove Station, are looking for a competent, live-out Housekeeper / Nanny.
You should be an experienced Housekeeper yet willing to be open to learning new ways of delivering, as although the Principals are very relaxed they do like certain things done in a particular way.
The Principals both work - sometimes from home - but their 9 year old daughter needs to be collected from school (parents do the morning drop off) and then encouraged to complete her homework before you produce a simple, child-friendly supper. Ideally they would also like you to prepare a lasagne or fish / meat dish for them to heat up later in the evening.
The house is on 3 levels so a Housekeeper wtih energy and a proactive attitude - when something is broken, it needs to be replaced and the Principals informed.
The family have recently acquired a 10 week old puppy (Cockapoo) so you must be dog-friendly - although a 'Puppy Nanny' is currently helping wth the regular training.
Cleaning, laundry, tidying, shopping and generally keeping the house in good order, plus overseeing their daughter are the main duties. They want you to take ownership of your duties, use your initiative and run the home.
The family travel to a villa during August and you may be asked to join them for a week. Occasional child-minding in the evenings, but notice is always given ahead of time.
Working days: Monday to Friday
Hours of work: 9:30 am - 6:30 pm
Salary: £550 - £600 net per week
