St JOHNS WOOD – LONDON NW8
DAILY MOTHERS HELP-FAMILY COOK-ASSISTANT HOUSEKEEPER
7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
A wonderful opportunity for a fun, flexible, kind and experienced family assistant to join a small but very happy team of staff. The family are long term clients and truly superb employers. The family consists of Mum and Dad and 3 children, boy age 5.5 yrs at school and 2 girls age 3.5 at nursery and 18 months at home. Mum is very hands on with the children and would never expect you to have sole care of all 3 children alone, there is always a helping hand. This is not a nanny position but more of a mother’s help/family assistant that requires a mature and flexible person who is very child friendly and has perhaps had children themselves. There will be some babysitting (no more than twice per week) and occasional proxy parenting during the year, so essential that you have the confidence to have sole charge of the children with other staff assistance approx 6 weekends per year.
A full-time housekeeper is employed who has been with the family for a number of years, you will need to assist with some housekeeping tasks such as laundry, cleaning of the children’s rooms, shopping, running errands and walking the family dog. Each day is different, and workload will be split depending on family activities. Ideally you will have reasonable family cooking skills primarily to prepare fresh and simple meals for the children.
Ideally you will have a driving licence and be able to assist with school runs, but not essential for the right person. Most important however, is a very happy disposition, ability to work as a good team player with a love of children and family life is more important.
The family have a Country home in the Cotswolds and on occasion you will be asked to accompany the family during school half terms and holidays. However, the country house has staff employed too.
