Lovely position for an informal family home. A large country home to a very busy young family, both parents work full time and travel frequently and hence you do need to be able to oversee the daily care and security of the property in their absence. There are 3 children, the eldest 17yrs, who travels a lot, and the 2 youngest aged 10 and 7yrs. It is essential that you are child friendly and be willing to babysit occasionally, collect them from school twice per week and perhaps take them to after school activities and supervise homework. There will be an occasional weekend where you will be asked to care for the children in the parent’s absence. Mum usually does the school runs in the morning. This is a very active, sporty family and hence a busy but very happy household.
Duties will include all daily housekeeping duties, to include cleaning, a lot of laundry, and fresh family cooking for the children.
Partner to manage approx. 2 acres of informal gardens most of which is lawn. This is a relatively new property to the owner’s and they would enjoy having a small vegetable garden developed and simple flower beds and borders planted. A keen hobby/ maintenance gardener is all that is required.
There will eventually be a tennis court to maintain, you must be pro-active in indoor and outdoor property maintenance and perhaps a DIY enthusiast with ability to wash cars, repair fences and deal with day to day property maintenance.
The family currently have 2 dogs, so essential that you are very dog friendly and willing occasionally to help with walking the dogs.
The working week will be on average of 45hrs per week each, primarily Monday to Friday with occasional weekend cover when needed by arrangement.
Salary commensurate to experience. 2 days off and separate, self-contained 2-bedroom accommodation, which can be either unfurnished or furnished. BOTH must drive, cars are available for work use. Sorry no dependent children or pets. (HU2638)
