A single mother with a 7 year old boy are looking for a temporary housekeeper who is child friendly.  You should be available ASAP through to the end of July 2018.  You must hold a full driving licence.

Family Background

A single mother who works full time, she is moving at the end of July and needs temporary cover for her and her son until they move.  They are currently based in Ware, Hertfordshire and they have no pets.  They are an easy-going, kind and warm family, who just need the support to provide them with care of her property and her young son.

The family are based in Ware, Hertfordshire.  This is a live in role for the duration of the booking.


5 days a week, Monday-Friday.  You'll be working 7:30-6:30pm.  With flexibility for occasional overtime evenings/babysitting during the week.


You should speak a good level of English to assist the boy with his homework.
