I am looking for a family friendly live-in Housekeeper/Cook for my clients living in Cobham, Surrey.

This is a wonderful role working for a lovely family with 2 children (12 and 16 years old).

Beautiful accommodation is provided – a separate studio flat with bathroom and kitchenette.

  • A confident driver, happy to run errands and helping with grocery shopping. A car will be provided
  • Pet friendly as the family has a dog
  • An experienced live-in housekeeper with excellent, checkable references. My client is looking for someone with a minimum of 5 years’ experience, living in with their previous principals.
