PHS Job 1727

We are one of the top boutique private housekeeping agencies in the UK. If you are looking to be employed as a private housekeeper in London, you have come to the right place. We will help you to find fantastic private housekeeper job.

Our client is looking for a permanent, live OUT housekeeper / cook for their home in South Kensington, London.

There are 2 principals living at the property with their small dog. They are very active and run a business however, due to their age, they fall in to the COVID 19 higher risk category. The main responsibility of the housekeeper cook will be to maintain the cleanliness of their home and keep it organised to the highest of standards. Cooking for the family is a must and ideally they are looking for a person who has a passion for cooking. Especially, Italian or Brazilian cuisine. This is a formal household and a high level of service is expected.

The family travel a lot and spend most of the year outside London. When the principals are out of the UK, the housekeeper will be expected to work 7 hours / day, Mon – Fri. During this time, the work load will be reduced.

When the family are in their London residence, the housekeeper will be expected to work 5 days per week, with one of the days being during the weekend.

We are looking for a candidate who is flexible, positive, can understand the principals expectations and are happy to help. We are not looking for a person with an argumentative personality who can not take direction but a calm confident person who is flexible.

The ideal candidate must be well organised with a minimum of 5 years in a private family home experience. You will work alongside a second housekeeper who will give you all the instructions needed to settle in to the vacancy well.
