PHS Job 436
Our new client is looking for a part time housekeeper to manage their 4 storeys property which has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. This position requires a long term commitment.
The family will be moving to a new home located in SW6.
They have a 2.5 yr old daughter and another baby due at the end of March but the family do have a full-time nanny so there will be no childcare duties.
You would be responsible for all normal housekeeping duties such as laundry, ironing, some household errands such as dry cleaning drop offs or adding household items to the Ocado order (online shopping). A candidate who wouldn't mind doing some light cooking once or twice a week would be a bonus - preparing a salad or making something easy and light. This isn't essential.
A good level of initiative in required - someone who can see something needs doing around the house and can just get on with the job at hand, rather than needing to be asked.
The family can be flexible with hours, roughly 20hrs/week spread over 4 or 5 days. These hours can be in the morning, middle or end of the day.
The family are non smokers.
