Family Background

A lovely Danish family with three children (aged 12, 14 and 16 years), with a friendly Labradoodle, are looking for a new long-term housekeeper to join their family home.  A beautiful six-bedroom home in Oxshott, Surrey.  Their current housekeeper is moving on after 10 years and they are very keen to find a new long-term member of staff to join their family home.  They are keen to find a committed and long-term candidate.  You should be happy to be around dogs for this role.

You should also be happy to take your dog out for a walk around their acre garden and clear up after the dog. Their dog isn’t keen on exercise so only a small walk around the garden a day will be needed! When the family are away on holiday you should be happy to look after the dog and care for the home.

You should be flexible to help out the family with errands if required. The children all go to different schools so help with the school runs and pick-ups would required if you can drive. An automatic car can be provided.
