A very good, reliable and trustworthy live in housekeeper/cook is required for a traditional formal household in Chelsea.
Monday - Friday and your jobs will include cleaning, washing, ironing, food shopping, preparing meals for the clients - healthy food and soups. If they have a dinner party they will bring in a chef so simple family cooking is fine.
You should have initiative and be flexible - for example as you are living in, if you come into the house at a weekend and the coats have fallen off the pegs onto the floor in the hallway, pick them up as you go into your accommodation - do not just step over them because it is your day off.
You will need to have previous housekeeping experience and love cleaning and be very honest and careful (not to break or ruin glasses by washing them in the wrong way for example). The clients also have another daily cleaner that comes in to help every day.
There are just 2 adults in the house, but sometimes only 1 adult. They have two children who live away from home, but occasionally may come back to stay.
You need to be very friendly, discreet, but not too discreet. Polite and clean and tidy. A lovely apartment is provided in the house with own room, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen. You do have to walk through the house to get to it.
Hours approximately 9am-1pm and then 3pm - 7pm ish, but flexibility is required, and they ask you live in for security purposes. You must be able to answer the door, answer the phone and run errands.
Initiative and common sense, honesty is all very important. You will be treated very well and have excellent working conditions, but you must be able to do the job and work to high standards.
Salary in the region of £500/week. Clients do all tax and national insurance.
