We are recruiting for a number of roles, all with an immediate start:
Competitive salaries are on offer and can be disclosed at shortlisting stage. We are looking for longevity on your CV and it is essential that you can provide 5 years of references.
The client will also apply for a DBS security check for you if you do not hold a valid certificate.
Your responsibilities involve daily cooking for the family when in residence (they travel and are away a lot). You are also responsible for keeping the house clean and tidy. Working hours are 07.30 – 20.30 ish but with a gap in the afternoon. You will work 5 days a week with 2 consecutive days off, these, however, will change week to week depending on the family’s plans.
The family consists of the parent, 2 young babies aged 6 months and a 4-year-old. They have a live-in Nanny and a Grandparent at the house also.
The position is initially a temporary booking until 14th Dec when the family goes away for 2 months over Dec/Jan. Upon their return they plan to move to London so there is the potential for a permanent position should things go well and you are keen to move with the family to London. If not, then it is fine to just commit to the temporary role instead.
Salary – approx £450 pw. Start Date – ASAP.
Their children are 16,12 and 5 – the eldest is away at boarding school and the other two have full-time nannies so there is no childcare with this job.
The house is fully staffed with housekeepers, laundress, chauffeur, private chef and a PA. Your role will be to work with the lady of the house. Your every working day will depend on what she needs. You must speak good English as she would like to improve her English language speaking and so you will also be spending your time as her companion just talking to her and going out and about with her in London. However, when the lady of the house is busy you should be prepared to help with all general cleaning and housekeeping wherever it is needed. You will also need to know how to set a lovely table for meals and also be prepared to help the Private Chefs by serving. They would really like someone who could become the House Manager after a period of settling in and getting to know everyone.
The ideal candidate will speak excellent English, be very well presented and have a great personality. You will need to be someone who is also a very knowledgeable housekeeper and someone who knows how to run and present a house to a high standard. It would be helpful if you could drive but it is not essential.
You will be working a five day week; 10 am to 7 pm OR 9 am to 6 pm. When the Gentleman is in London you will work Monday to Friday when he is away you should be prepared to do some working over the weekend – but you will then get days off during the week and you will always work a 5 day week. Salary will depend on experience and will be in the region of £500 to £650 net pw.
Start Date – ASAP.
