Housekeeper / Cook
Full Time, Live-In – near Guildford, in Surrey
£32,000 – £35,000 dependent on experience and flexibility
We are looking for an experienced Housekeeper / Cook to take on a role within our busy family home.
We’re a relaxed and friendly family and have a team of around 6 people assisting us on our 120-acre estate in the Surrey Hills. It’s important to us that we surround ourselves with likeminded people who are warm, positive and have a good sense of humour, but it’s equally as important that those people are reliable, hardworking, strong team-players and meticulous in their approach. We have high standards and expect our team to work to the best of their ability.
We both work from home and have 4 fantastic children – ranging in age from 9 to 16. Our 9-year-old son lives at home and goes to school half an hour away, and our 3 girls are at boarding school in Kent and are home some weekends and in the holidays.
Our house has 3 floors and 7 bedrooms and needs a Housekeeper who is organised and self-motivated. There’s always lots to do and you will need to be able to manage your own time, use your own initiative, and keep things running smoothly.
Your main duties will include:
· Hands-on cleaning, laundry and ironing
· Running errands and organising the Ocado shopping
· Cooking to a high standard – light breakfast, lunch and evening meal – cooking from scratch – we are foodies and open to trying new dishes
· School runs for our son
This is a live-in role – accommodation is a lovely fully furnished 2-bedroom cottage, which is quite separate to the main house and nice and private. This is not shared with any other members of staff.
Pets will be considered.
Non-working partners will be considered.
Please advise us of pets and/or live-in partners at the time of application.
Hours are 45 per week – 9 hours a day, 5 days per week – with some flexibility needed.
This full-time role requires you to take a break in the afternoons before returning for the evening school run and dinner.
There will be occasional days when we both travel to London for work and you will be required to babysit until we get home.
In an ideal world, you would have both of your days off in the week but we are open to discussion regarding weekends.
It’s worth mentioning that post COVID-19, we will travel as a family a fair amount, so there will be blocks of time when the workload will be very different – with no weekends or evenings and just housesitting / deep cleaning while we are away.
Start required ASAP.
Please include a covering letter with your application.
No agencies, thank you.
