A family of six, about to move into their new property in Kingston Upon Thames, KT2, are looking for a live in child-friendly housekeeper to provide full-time support for their family and house. This booking will last until the 31st of August, but may extend - you should be available until at least the 31st of August.

Package Offered

  • £720 gross per week (£37,000 gross per year annual salary)
  • Accommodation, own bedroom and ensuite
  • All bills included.

Family Background

A family of six, based in Chelsea, London, are moving to Kingston Upon Thames, KT2 on the 1st of June. They have a full-time housekeeper who due to personal reasons has had to caese her contract. They also have a nanny who works full time for them. The family have three children, 17 years old, 20 month old twins and a 7 year old. The 7-year-old is vulnerable to COVID-19, and due to this the family have been in isolation for the months prior, and will be staying in isolation for a number of months to come. They go for regular walks, fresh air, but do not go to the shops. Therefore due to the new move, they are keen to find a temporary housekeeper who can live in with them, and remain isolation until/if the other housekeeper returns. This will likely be the end of August/Start of September. But flexibility would be key. They have no pets. The property is a 7 bedroom property, in a beautiful part of Greater London.


All housekeeping duties including the ironing, cleaning, organising and dealing with day to day duties. You should be a skilled housekeeper and able to hit the ground running with strong initiative and ability to see what needs to be done. In the early weeks you'll be helping unpack from the move, get the house organised and helping out with daily duties. Mum is a stay at home mum, and the family are in full isolation due to their son being vulnerable to the virus. The whole family are isolation but go for walks each day. You should be flexible, happy to lend a hand in all aspects from the housekeeping through to playing the children if required. Ideally, you should enjoy cooking and be happy to help mum with the cooking each day. You should be discreet, well mannered and highly professional in your approach.

You should be child friendly and happy to lend a hand with the children if required, although the nanny focuses on the children, the mum needs to feel comfortable with you around the children - and the more help you can provide the better!

There is a small possibility that this role could extend into a permanent one if the original housekeeper does not return, but for now you should be available to the start of September to take this booking.


The family live in Kingston Upon Thames, KT2. You will be given your own private room and ensuite in the family home.


  • Monday - Friday 7:30am - 7:30pm with regular breaks.
  • If you are happy to work a few less hours during the week and help out on a Saturday morning this would be ideal, but not required if you don't wish to.


You must speak a good level of English.

Special Skills

You should understand that due to the vulnerability of the son, that you would be in self-isolation with the family. You can, of course, go for a walk, fresh air, but you would not be able to socialise or go to the shops etc. This is to keep the son safe.

Interview/Start date

The family are interviewing now for the right person to start ASAP.
