The family are predominantly based in London however they also have houses in Paris, Budapest, Spain and 2 in the USA. Between June and August, you will be travelling with the family – usually spending 4 weeks in one of their European homes followed by 5/6 weeks over in the USA, with occasional travel over thanksgiving.
Housekeeping duties would be lighter whilst in the London residence, as there is also full time housekeeper. However, would generally be expected to assist her during busy periods.
When travelling with the family these duties would extend. Working hours may vary but in general would be 8 hours over the course of a day, flexible over the week:
Hours: 12:00 – 20:00 Monday – Friday
Start Date: ASAP
The residence is located in St. John’s Wood, it is a converted Church with over 4 floors and many steps and 7,500sqft. There are six people in the family – although the older children are at college in the US most of the year. The younger ones (14 and 16) still live there – but are in school every day from 8am to 3pm. They also have three dogs!
There was a live-in Nanny/Housekeeper for many years but now that the children are older they are replacing this role with a live-out housekeeper. A Private Chef also comes to the residence each evening to cook for the family plus a separate window cleaner is employed to take care of this.
The family travel extensively so while the family are away you would be expected to deep clean certain areas of the residence. Occasionally you might be asked to help out with dinner parties and events, but this will be on an adhoc basis with plenty of notice.
