15hrs p/w | Dog Walking & Housekeeping | Bristol, BS7

Freckles have a lovely family with a great (and slightly quirky!) job opportunity! The role is primarily dog sitting and housekeeping with some childcare required when the boys (nearly 14 & 16 years old) are on holiday. The family are absolutely lovely and have been with us since their dog was a puppy! The puppy is now 10 months old, he’s a Red Fox Labrador and he’s totally gorgeous!

Ideally the family are looking for someone for about 15hrs per week split over 2 or 3 days. The hours can be fairly flexible, circa 10am - 3pm. Mondays and Wednesdays are essential and then either Tuesday or Thursday (unless you can do longer days on Monday and Wednesday).

Your duties will include:

  • Dog walking

  • general housekeeping; laundry, changing bed sheets and general odd jobs

  • Cleaning (including occasional spring cleaning e.g. cleaning the oven, fridge)

  • Ironing

  • Cooking / preparing meals for the evening or to freeze

  • Bits of shopping (walking distance)

  • Minor gardening tasks e.g water pots (especially if the family are away)

  • Supervision and encouragement of the boys during the school holidays with meals and getting out and about away from their screens

Important to stress that the cleaning and ironing are a major part of the role (circa 50%) with the rest generally cooking and dog walking.

It’s preferable if you have your own car but this isn’t necessarily a deal breaker. The role can start anytime throughout August or in early September, although the family would like to find someone brilliant sooner rather than later!
