A lovely family with 4-year-old twin boys and 2 cats are relocating to Windsor this summer and are looking for a full time live out housekeeper/cook.

Family Background
A professional couple, the father works long hours and the mother works from home. The boys attend school and have a full time nanny who is there 8 hours per day. They have two well-behaved indoor cats. They are moving to the beautiful town of Windsor in Berkshire at the end of July and are looking for a new full time housekeeper/cook to work for their new large family home in central Windsor.

Your role will be fully focused on the housekeeping and cooking for the family.  You will be in charge of all cleaning, ironing, laundry through to wardrobe management, clothing care and ensuring that everything is tidy, as well as deep cleaning when needs be.

You will be taking care of the two indoor cats, feeding them, cleaning their litter and you should be comfortable around them. You will be in charge of preparing breakfast for the family in the morning, and preparing dinner before you leave so the family can have this or warm this up for their dinner time. You might be asked to make light and simple lunches for the mother when she is busy at home but this would not be required on a daily basis. The family like fresh and simple food, and only use organic ingredients. They enjoy Mediterranean and British cuisine but are open to all fresh, home cooked and healthy food.

You will be in charge of creating your own schedule of what needs to be cleaned daily ensuring the house is tidy and everything is in order to a very high standard. Occasional shopping might be required.

When the children are at school the nanny will help with cleaning and ironing tasks, however when the children are at home her sole focus will be on the kids.

The family are moving to central Windsor, Berkshire. This is a live out role so no accommodation would be provided.
