Family Background
The family have three children, ages between 7 and 11 and a small dog. They live in a beautiful property in South Hampstead consisting of 5 bedrooms for the family and 3 staff bedrooms.

You should be happy to cook for the family on occasion and follow recipes. Nothing high end, but easy, family style food for time to time.  You should be happy to help out with the children when required.

In the summer the family travels to the USA for approximately three weeks. Ideally, you should be happy to travel with them.
