Live in Housekeeper with Nanny duties | Kensington, London | 2 October start

Freckles has a busy family in Kensington, London who need a full time live in housekeeper/nanny to help run the home and care for their 8yo daughter and her cockapoo puppy!

The family provide a basement flat with your own front door and french doors to access the garden. You are the only live in member of staff but whilst working as a housekeeper you will make up a team of three. 

The role involves lots of traveling during the school holidays, to Italy (Rome & Tuscany) and also America and the Caribbean. When abroad the role is predominately nannying with some housekeeping - so it's important that you are able to switch between roles and duties when either in London or abroad. 

You need to be full of initiative, able to see tasks and get them done and be incredibly organised with regards to the daughters schedule/bag/sports kit etc. The family have a chef. Because you will be part of a large team it is important that you are self-motivated. 

Core hours are 1pm - 9pm Monday - Friday with one day off per weekday. Saturday 4hrs during the afternoon and Sunday 10am - 6pm. 

The family are Italian - so it would be ideal if you speak Italian and have a good understanding of the culture! The family would love someone committed, reliable and professional. 

The little girl loves singing and swimming. She is bright and bubbly and loves to chat! 

As always the main info is listed below. This is a really super role for someone looking to live in in London and also travel around. If you're not yet registered with Freckles simply send us a copy of your CV and cover letter to kayas@freckleschildcare.co.uk and we can go from there.
