Summary:

 This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced private family Housekeeper to work with a busy family who are relocating back to the UK. Their relocation is not straight forward, and they will be relocating in two phases. Initially they will be in the UK from April to July and then back and forth on short visits, until their actual permanent relocation in August 2019

 We are looking for someone who is happy to commit for the long term, is an excellent cleaner who can also look after the youngest children when the parents are away. On the housekeeping front, they need multiple properties looked after.

This position is ideal for someone who is happy to travel, if required and will really suit you if you are flexible and able to move between a busy family life and quieter times when you will be caring for the properties, but the family are away.

 

Duties will include:

When family is in UK

Cleaning, laundry, helping out with children, including school pick up, babysitting, providing full-time childcare while parents are away

When whole family is abroad

Cleaning, keeping an eye on the properties including travelling between all 3, meeting trades men, childcare & laundry when the family is back for a visit.

 

We would like all three places cleaned weekly which would mean travelling to London, though someone based in the Sussex area would be best. We also have a number of friends who use our properties while we are away and so we need someone to clean before and after they stay and to coordinate giving them keys etc. While we are away, the properties will also have to be checked for maintenance problems and so someone will have to be available for things like meeting a plumber.

 

 

In general, we are looking for someone with a UK driver’s licence, a passport which does not need visas for everywhere (ie UK or European) as we may need this person to travel with us, non-smoker and preferably with their own accommodation in the Sussex area.
