PLEASE NOTE - THE FOCUS FOR THIS ROLE IS ON FULL HOUSEKEEPING.
The parents are hands on and love spending time with their daughter as well. Mum is at home and dad works from home.
They want someone who is keen to stay long term and really become part of the family.
Another prerequisite is a love of animals. In their country house they have dogs, ducks, chickens, rabbits and more. So if you do travel with them to their other properties then you may have interaction with these.
They are a big and busy family and grandparents visit a few times a week to stay over.

Duties to include:
- Possible help with nursery pick-ups – daughter is at nursery 9am-12pm 4 days a week.

- Housekeeping: Cleaning, hoovering, tidying up the kitchen, playroom, daughter’s bedroom, helping with laundry or whatever may need doing. They have another housekeeper who will be helping the most with their daughter to begin with, as she already has a relationship with her. Once a bond is built then the role may evolve more to a Nanny role.
- A knowledge of cleaning special fabrics would be a bonus, as the current Housekeeper is less sure in this area, so teaching her this would
be a plus!
- Potential travel with the family to Hampshire, France and other countries

Start date: ASAP

Accommodation: Self-contained basement flat with own kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, TV etc.

Salary circa £30k depending on living situation.
Accommodation: If the Nanny wanted to live-in then potentially there is a lovely 2-bed annexe next door to their house, which they would be happy to provide for the right candidate.
