LinkedIn ShareShare

 

A busy couple are looking for a new housekeeper to help them clean and manage their beautiful home in Primrose Hill, NW1, 5 days per week alongside their other housekeeper. 

Package Offered

  • £16 - £18 gross per hour
  • 23 - 30 hours each week
  • You will work alongside a second part-time housekeeper

Family Background

The couple live in a beautiful home in Primrose Hill, NW1. The house is spread over 3 floors with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and kitchen, with only one of the bedrooms being used regularly and the others usually closed off unless guests are visiting, so even though it is a big house, most of the rooms are not used. The couple have a beautiful large dog, he is very friendly so you must be a dog person for this role! You will not need to look after him regularly but once you do become a trusted member of the family it would be useful if you were happy to dog-sit when the couple are on holiday, which you would be paid overtime for. 

Duties

You will be in charge of all of the housekeeping in the property, along with the other part time housekeeper. You will be responsible for doing all of the laundry and ironing – the couple have a dedicated utility room, with washers and dryers. You should be happy to ensure all the shoes of the couple are clean, this will include: using washing machine with shoes inserted inside laundry bags and using the shoe kit to clean down the shoes prior to putting into the washing machine (to ensure no damage to the washing machine or for shoes which cannot go into the washing machine). If you are comfortable in the kitchen, you may be asked to do light cooking and follow basic recipes – but the couple cook regularly for themselves so it’s not a requirement. You should be happy and experienced in looking after high-end properties with marble and wood. You will be asked to run errands and do shopping for the couple so if you have your own car this is a bonus. Although the couple are relaxed and informal, they like to have a formal feeling in the staff who work in the home, and a uniform will be provided, this will be bought for the chosen candidate - meaning that you can undertake your duties in comfortable but smart clothing, whilst also protecting your own clothes.

Location

The couple live in a beautiful home in Primrose Hill, NW1, so you should be within easy commuting distance.
