Job Location & Family Description

This is a great job for a live out housekeeper to work for a friendly family with a lovely home not far from Aylesbury.  The family have two children, 12 and 14, and although they do not need a 'nanny', they do need someone who is happy to do a school run and be the 'adult' in the house when the Principals are not there. They also have a small dog.


You must be an experienced driver and you will need your own car to get to work.


Job Role

The job is primarily that of a housekeeper and your duties will include keeping the house clean and well presented, laundry and ironing including the care of fine fabrics, changing the beds and other household linen, making sure that school uniforms are available as needed, prepare and cook a simple supper for the children, greeting guests, dealing with contractors if needed, household shopping, and anything else that is needed to make sure that the house is run smoothly.  You will also be doing a school run or taking the children to friends/activities and you may also be asked to walk the dog during the day. 


The Principals are both out during the day so it is essential that you are able to plan your own day and are happy to work without supervision.



Candidate Requirements

It is essential that you have worked as a housekeeper in a private home for at least 3 years with suitable references. You must have worked with children of a similar age. Excellent spoken English is needed.  You must be reliable, trustworthy, friendly and able to help run a household.

Hours and Salary
