A friendly family who recently relocated to London from Dubai are looking for a full time live in housekeeper to join their family home.

Family Background
A busy family, the husband and wife both work full time and have only last year relocated from Dubai to London.  They have four children, all boys, and three of them still live at home. The youngest is 8 years old, the eldest 12. They also have an older son who is in boarding school. They have no pets. They are living in Richmond at the moment but are looking for a new property to move in to in the next couple of months, which will be in London. They have had a housekeeper in the family for a long time, she has travelled with them from Dubai but as she is returning they now need a new, long term housekeeper.

As a live in housekeeper, the family would require you to be in charge of all the housework, cleaning, ironing etc.  The mother loves doing the cooking and shopping however sometimes you will be required to help or step in.  As they have three of their four boys still living in the house, you should understand children and be comfortable around them, and help out where needed.   What's important for this family is that you are a valued member of the household. Their last housekeeper was part of the family, and they are looking for a long term housekeeper.

The family home is in Richmond, however they are looking to move to a new house in London in the next couple of months. This is a live in role so the family will provide staff accommodations within their new house or at least on the grounds – the exact setup will depend on their new house but you will definitely have your own bedroom and en-suite, and potentially a kitchenette area.

Monday – Friday with some flexibility to help out over some weekends when the family needs to – in return some weekdays might be quieter so it will balance each other out. The family would require the odd evening of being present in the house if the parents would go out so the children are not on their own. This is a live in role.

You should speak a good level of English.  

Special Skills
Driving is not a must. You must have experience as a housekeeper in private households and be extremely organised and hands on.

Package Offered
Up to £28K a year depending on experience and background.

Interview/Start date
The family is interviewing now for start ASAP, as soon as they have found the right person.
