They have 4 children (3 of which are at boarding school). They employ a full time Housekeeper & Nanny during the week plus other adhoc local help at weekends.
This family is well known to Dallas Dacre Lacy Domestic Recruitment Agency as I placed a full time Housekeeper/Cook who spent 2 ½ happy years working for them.
A major part of the role is preparing wholesome meals for the family & casseroles for up to 15 people when they are hosting shooting parties etc. The family have an aga & a gas cooker. In addition it would be appreciated if you could help keep the house clean & tidy over the weekend & walk the dogs.
