ENERGETIC LIVE-IN HOUSEKEEPER/COOK – LONDON

A lovely HNW couple would like to appoint a reliable and hard-working full-time live-in Housekeeper to assist them with the smooth running of their 5-storey home Central London. The ideal candidate will be energetic, proactive and able to manage their time efficiently, managing all housekeeping and laundry requirements at the property, as well as undertaking some cooking duties.

You will ensure that high standards of cleanliness are maintained across the property and will be responsible for all general and deep cleaning duties, as well as cooking simple, healthy meals, following their favourite recipes (mostly just dinner, but sometimes lunch too). You will need to have excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings and use of appropriate cleaning products. Further responsibilities will include unpacking deliveries, organising cupboards/drawers, and ensuring all groceries and household products are always topped up.

Usual working hours are 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, but flexibility will be required to occasionally work longer hours when required, or on a weekend day, which will be paid as overtime. Accommodation is provided in a lovely en-suite bedroom on the first floor of the house. The clients are looking for a switched-on Housekeeper with a kind, caring and positive demeanour to remain with them long-term. Ideally you will be tech-savvy and be able to place orders online, but this is not essential.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Laundry, ironing, and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
• Managing stocks of cleaning products and groceries, including perishables
• Preparing simple, healthy meals for the principals (mostly dinner, but sometimes lunch too)
• Unpacking deliveries, organising cupboards and drawers
• Liaising with contractors and tradesmen
• Placing online orders
• Errand running
• Rubbish and recycling management

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end private household
• Happy to cook and able to follow simple recipes
• Active and energetic
• Fluency in English and eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• High attention to detail
• Able to work independently with little supervision
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Tech-savvy
• Excellent checkable references

If this sounds of interest and you meet the essential criteria, please do apply within, or get in touch to find out more.
