Live-in Housekeeper/Cook in Kensington, London

Location: London

Type: Permanent


Ref: LH22

Our family in Kensington, Central London, are searching for a live-in housekeeper/cook to start ASAP. The role is primarily cooking and housekeeping, with some nanny duties required as and when needed to assist the family's full-time nanny. The working days and hours are 6 days a week, from 7am-8pm, with a break during the day. The family have three girls, ages 4, 8, and 10. A driver is not required for this role. You will have your own double bedroom and en-suite bathroom in the family's beautifully refurbished home in this prime London location.

The family's ideal candidate will have a track record of housekeeping to a high standard, in similar previous roles - a meticulous eye for detail and cleanliness is needed here. You should have a high level of cookery skills, and will assist with the shopping list - ensuring everything is in stock and running errands if and when required. Flexibility really is key here; the successful housekeeper/cook must understand the requirements of working in a busy and fully-staffed household. You should be happy to muck-in and help out where needed, and without instruction - motivation and common sense are a must.

The principles value loyalty and they are looking for someone who enjoys working as a team member with other staff. You will ideally have a positive and cheerful demeanour and a can-do attitude. Energy and enthusiasm are much-needed, along with flexibility and a great work ethic. The family are looking for candidates who have held similar positions previously, long term; they would like someone to become a part of the family. The salary on offer is between £500-£550 gross per week / approx. £26,000-£29,000 gross per annum. Please apply today to be considered - we are interviewing now.
