Family Background
A lovely family with 4 young children (aged 3, 6, 7 and 8 years) who live in a 3-bedroom, flat near Kensington, SW10. The family have no pets in the household.  They currently hire a full-time nanny and are now looking for a new, long-term housekeeper who can become a valued member of the family home.  They are keen to find someone who is down to earth, flexible and a team player. The parents are out at work during the day so you should be happy to get on with your tasks independently with little supervision.

The family hires a full-time nanny but you should be happy to assist with childcare when needed, helping the nanny out and being a real team player. The youngest is at nursery during the day. The children go to a local school, walking distance away, so you should be happy to help out with school pick-ups and take the children to playdates and planned activities. The nanny loves to cook for the family and you should be willing to help prepare food and occasionally cook for the husband and wife. 
 
You should have excellent initiative and like to get on with things. The ideal candidate will be someone who is engaging and fun and is adept in housekeeping as well as comfortable around children.
