  • Preparing meals for the family; including food for the parents to eat once home from the office and supporting the Nanny with batch cooking for the children.
  • Food shopping for the family in required; ensuring items are topped up and stocked in cupboards, whilst discarding out-of-date food. 
  • Running local errands when needed.
  • Although dog walking is carried out by the family most days, the occasional dog walk would be greatly appreciated when the parent’s schedule is more demanding. 
  • The Nanny will carry out babysitting duties for the 6 and 1-year-olds, but occasional babysitting would be gratefully appreciated, if over time, House Keeper forms a bond with the children to support the Nanny.
    What We’re Looking For:

    • Non-smoker.
    • Previous experience in a housekeeping role is most desirable.
    • A flexible approach to working and willing to adapt to tasks.
    • Speak a good level of English to communicate with the family.
    • A warm and positive attitude.
    • And of course, a lover of dogs!
