DAILY HOUSEKEEPER/COOK REQUIRED FOR HNW FAMILY

We are working with a lovely HNW family of 3 in Notting Hill to source a highly skilled, proactive, and versatile full-time Housekeeper/Cook for their 4-bedroom property, split across 4 levels. The ideal candidate will be organised, energetic and able to use their initiative, managing their time effectively to ensure the smooth running of the household. The family have a toddler and a baby on the way and employ a full-time Nanny but would like to employ a child friendly Housekeeper/Cook who could assist with occasional baby-sitting duties, if required.
 
You will ensure that very high standards of cleanliness are maintained across the property and will be responsible for all general and deep cleaning duties, laundry, and ironing, as well as online grocery shopping, so being tech-savvy is a must. You will prepare and cook nourishing, delicious meals for the family for breakfast and lunch and prepare and leave dinner for them. Having excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings, antiques, and fine art, as well as delicate fabrics such as silks and cashmere is essential for this role.
 
The ideal candidate will be organised, personable and friendly, yet boundaried and discreet, allowing the family their space and privacy. The family are looking to appoint a Housekeeper/Cook with a ‘can-do’, positive attitude who will remain with them long-term. You must be inspired by cooking and also be comfortable with animals – the family have two cats, so it’s essential that you have no pet allergies and would be happy to assist with pet care. Usual working hours are Monday to Friday, 8am-6pm.
 
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
- Polishing silver, cleaning, caring for antiques and fine art
-  Managing grocery and cleaning product stock levels, ensuring sufficient levels are always maintained
- Online and local grocery shopping
- Preparing and cooking hearty, family-style meals daily
- Table setting and clear up
- Rubbish and recycling management
- Flower arranging
- Assisting with pet care
 
ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
- Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end private household
- Fluency in English and eligibility to work in the UK
- Hardworking and dedicated
- Boundaried and discreet
- Proactive and organised
- Trustworthy and reliable
- Excellent checkable references
