Family Background

A busy family of five, with three children (10, 9, 5.5 year old) who attend school and nursery.  Their beautiful home with 5 bedrooms, over 4 floors, is close to Richmond Park. They have a nanny who has come from Greece, who is helping with the children in the afternoons.  They do not have any pets but are considering getting a dog in the future. 

Duties

You'll be responsible for all the housekeeping, deep cleaning, laundry and ironing. You'll also be in charge of food shopping and running errands for the family.  The mother is very hands on, but she may well need assistance with the children in the mornings. You may also be asked to drop off the children for school and/or nursery, you will be sole charge of the children at this time.  The mother/nanny picks up the children in the afternoon. You should have a focused and professional approach, and love to take care of the house to a high standard.  You should be looking for a long term position, as the family want to have a long term member of staff.  You should be happy to help with light cooking, making simple, family food.  You should be happy to set the table, tidying up after dinner, and making sure the kitchen is clean and tidy.  As it's a busy family, you should be happy to be discreet and just have good common sense to get on with tasks at hand, to help make family life run smoothly.  During the summer holidays they will sometimes ask you to travel with the family, so you should be flexible to travel with them when needed (typically for around two months over the summer).

Location/Accommodation

You'll be provided with your own private bedroom and bathroom.  The family live in Wandsworth, SW15 close to Richmond Park.

Days/Hours

Monday to Friday with flexibility to assist on occasional weekends when agreed in advance.  Working 8am to 8pm with a two hour break during the day.
