Morning and Evening Housekeeper/Mother’s Help – Try Again

There was a problem with Gumtree mail, so please re-apply again.

This is a very busy, shared job assisting a full-time mother of 4 friendly children in a busy family house, so there is a lot of housework, eg:

Cleaning, vacuuming, bathrooms, windows, washing-up, making beds, etc, plus LOADS of washing and ironing and some help with getting the children ready for school. Also, some vegetable preparation and help with tidying/organising and odd tasks such as gardening or (very rarely) simple DIY and other odd jobs. Evenings also include some help in the kitchen, clearing up after dinner, occasionally supervising children’s homework and helping to get them ready for bed.

Hours flexible but usually between 2-5 hours per shift depending on the day. You would work between 2 and 4 evenings and several mornings per week (with at least one evening and morning at the weekend).

Hours during School Term:

Weekday Mornings: 7.15am start to help with pre-school rush.

Weekday Evening Start time: around 4.15/5.30pm (variable) for around 3 or 4 hours.

Weekend Mornings: 8.30/9am till around lunchtime.

Weekend Evening start: 5/6pm for about 2 or 3 hours.

School Holiday Hours:

Usually start and end a bit later than during the term. Possibility of plenty of time off during Xmas and Easter hols.

Extra sessions or hours often available.

The job is probably 80% housekeeping and 20% childcare. It is NOT a babysitting job.

£7.50 per hour.

School Holiday Hours: Usually start and finish 1 or 2 hours later

To be considered, you MUST apply with full CV, and chatty covering letter to include reasons why you would be suitable and for how long you would like the job.
