Housekeeper with some Childcare Duties

£25,000 per annum

 

A client living in Bovingdon (4 miles & a 12 minute drive from Hemel Hempstead) is looking to employ a Daily Housekeeper who offers some childcare experience along with a full and clean driving licence.

Candidates will need to show that they are flexible and able to work between Monday to Friday 8am/9am to 5pm/6pm. Note: the client is happy to consider employing someone who is able to work either 4 or 5 days a week.

The ability to provide occasional evening and weekend babysitting duties would be seen as a big advantage, and this time would be paid extra, or time off in lieu would be given.

The children, a girl aged 11 years and a boy 12 years old, are both joining secondary (day) school in September 2019.

There is a car available during work hours (Fiat 500X Automatic – 4WD, Circa 2 years old). Driving is typically required for shopping, school runs and running errands in the wider Bovingdon area (Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead, Amersham, St. Albans, Rickmansworth).

The property sits on a large 5 acre, beautifully maintained estate and includes: a pool complex, greenhouse, tennis court, large landscaped garden including a vegetable and kitchen garden and orchard. The main house is spread over 3 floors and includes: 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (which need daily cleaning), reception rooms and kitchen etc. There is also a 1-bedroom cottage used as a home office and for occasional guests.

Ideal start date is early August. However the client is happy to interview now with the view, that the Housekeeper might have to to give  1-month notice and/or have summer holidays already booked. 

The clients are ‘down to earth’, bi-lingual and travel regularly, sometimes to their holiday homes abroad. They would like to employ a liberal thinking, non-smoking housekeeper, who is very discreet and confidential and who doesn't advertise or live her/his life on social media platforms!

Candidates will have proven longevity in previous roles and present excellent checkable references, a current driving licence, and a DBS (this can be organised if needed). Interviews now for August start.
