LIVE-IN HOUSEKEEPER/NANNY FOR HNW FAMILY – LONDON

A lovely high-net-worth family of four are looking to hire an experienced, energetic, and self-directed live-in Housekeeper/Nanny for their 6-bedroom apartment in Chelsea, London. The family have two children, aged 4 & 12, and whilst the role will predominantly focus on housekeeping, the successful candidate will also undertake daily childcare duties such as cooking for the children and babysitting occasionally.

A busy family home, our clients are looking for someone who has exacting standards, a positive and pleasant demeanour, and the ability to work autonomously. As an experienced Housekeeper, you will have in-depth knowledge and experience of all household cleaning duties, including having knowledge of how to care for high-end surfaces such as marbles, woods, and silver. Responsible for the household’s laundry and ironing, you will be a confident laundress, able to expertly care for delicate garments and fine fabrics.

Working hours will be from Monday to Saturday, from 07:00-19:00, however, it will be flexible with a break during the day. You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom, as well as a private kitchenette. Other than cooking for the children, no other cooking duties are required, and a driver is not essential for this role. The successful candidate will have to travel abroad with the family a few times year, so must be travel-ready.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms, kitchen, living and dining areas
• Laundry, ironing, and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
• Caring for high-end surfaces with delicate finishes
• Managing stocks of cleaning products and grocery shopping
• Cooking for the children and babysitting when required
• Rubbish and recycling management
• Receipt of deliveries and greeting contractors and tradesmen
• Liaising with other staff members such as PA and Chauffeur to ensure the smooth running of the household

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience within in a private household
• Prior childcare experience
• Fluency in spoken English and eligibility to work in the UK
• Self-directed, energetic, and discreet
• DBS check or willingness to obtain one
• Excellent checkable references
