Mother’s Help – Live out

circa £40,000

 

Our lovely Principal, who lives with her three young children in a busy, fully-staffed home in Chelsea, is looking for two, live-out Mother's Help to join her existing team.

Mum is actively involved in every aspect of raising her children, but because of an extremely busy work & social life, needs staff to help her provide 7-day cover.

Candidates will be expected to step-in, when needed, to assist with feeding, dressing the children, changing nappies, taking them to out-of-school activities putting them to bed, child-sitting/watching the baby monitors.

The team of 4 will provide cover, 7 days a week. Working in rotation, each shift will be 12 hours long from:  7:00 until 19:00 or, noon until late. This means that candidates will work 3, 4 or 5 days a week, depending on the roster.

Occasional babysitting is required if mum goes out, otherwise the late shift finishes when she retires for the evening. There is almost never a requirement to sleep over.

In addition to the property in London, The Principal has a home on the West Coast of America where she spends the Summer, so some travel will be required, but this is shared amongst the team.

The house is fully-staffed, but candidates will be expected to step in and assist with ad-hoc tasks, such as child-related housekeeping duties, running errands or helping colleagues.

The position carries very specific responsibilities, however, candidates will be expected to work as part of a team and take instruction from other team members  when required. 

Mum knows how she would like to raise her children so candidates must realise they are there to facilitate her methods and not to impose their own beliefs.
