A friendly British family of three based in Cobham, Surrey, who are extremely well known by the agency are looking for a part time housekeeper.
A busy family, the husband works long, full time hours and the mother is busy with her projects and schedule each week. They have one daughter aged 21 months, who attends nursery three days a week and has a part time child carer. It's a large property with five bedrooms and bathrooms. They have a current cleaner who has been with them for many years but she has just given her notice as she is starting a family. They are therefore looking for a new, long-term part time housekeeper to join their family.
As a live out housekeeper, the family would require you to be in charge of all the housework, cleaning, ironing etc. Also some cooking and tidying up after meals. Due to mum sometimes being out and about, you should be child friendly and happy to assist now and then with the daughter if the mum has to pop out for any reason. You should therefore understand children and be comfortable around them. If you have a driving licence you might also be asked to run errands, go to the shops/post office etc. 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. You should be pro-active with good initiative and be able to help manage and maintain the household. Thinking for yourself, airing rooms, and helping out as you see fit. This summer the family are starting a renovation project, so things will get a bit busy in the house with contractors etc, so you should be flexible and easy-going. The family are very relaxed and although the mother sometimes works from home she will be in her own office and let you get on with things.
The family home is in Cobham, this is a live out role.
Two days a week (flexible on which days). Also the family are open for a person just doing a complete full day (not on a weekend). Total amount of hours each week would be 10-12 hours (5/6 hours split visit or 9/10 hours on one day). If you can give flexibility (with notice) for babysitting this would also be a bonus.
You should speak a good level of English.
Driving is not required, but if you drive this would be a bonus.
Between £10-16net per hour.
