Household Assistant Cooking and Childcare

Posted 21 August by Silver Swan Recruitment
Easy Apply Ended

A lovely family in East Lothian, Scotland are looking for a Household Assistant to come and care for their home and two young daughters. This is a hybrid role and requires a flexible candidate with a positive attitude and a varied skill set. The most important elements of this role are cooking, general household organisation and caring for the children. The two girls are both attending school in the local area so, although they are away during the day, the successful candidate will be responsible for assisting with school runs, supervising homework and helping with general childcare and babysitting.

The beautiful family home is located on the grounds of a large game estate so there is the possibility that this position could be suitable for a couple if the other member of the couple has very strong gardening and groundskeeping experience.
