12hrs p/w | Wellow, Bath | Flexible start

Freckles have a family with three adorable children; girl (12), boy (9) and boy (6) who live in Wellow - 15 minutes from Bath. They are looking for an initiative driven, confident and experienced individual to join them. The role has a flexible start date, although the family would like to have someone great in role as soon as possible. The role is Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 3pm - 7pm, with possibly some extra hours during the holidays. 

Key duties and aspects of the role are outlined below. Mum works from home so sometimes the role is sole charge and sometimes it’s shared charge - you therefore need to be confident with both situations.

  • Housekeeping:including ironing, light cleaning duties, changing beds, tidying children’s rooms

  • Occasional cooking for the children; vegetarian meals from scratch on an Aga

  • Putting supermarket shopping away and keeping the kitchen running

  • Children’s laundry and ironing

  • Picking up children from school: either walking to local school to collect the youngest or meeting the elder two off the school bus in the village when it’s dark

  • Entertaining and playing with the youngest boy as he is often home from school first. Reading with him is also required.

  • Being able to relate to 12 year old girl and 9 year old boy who have different likes and interests and need to be deterred from spending all of their time on screens and encouraged to engage in after school stuff.

  • Unpacking school bags, checking sports kit, washing dirty games kit and putting things away.

Mum works from a home office upstairs and really wants to be able to spend more time with the kids to support them with the reading, spelling, homework, so being able to facilitate more time for her is really important.

You need to be a self starter, experienced with running a home and taking care of children and happy to get stuck into all sorts of task. You must have your own car and a full clean driving license.

The kids are great fun. The eldest is super creative and arty, so she would love someone who can sit down with her to make things and create things. The younger two boys adore football and charging around outside. They also love their lego and getting into building amazing things. The 12yo will happily spend her time after school reading in her room so we really need you to be a pal to her and catch up on school news and have a laugh in the evening.
