Au pair/housekeeper/personal assistant vacancy wanted

by Lara

Housekeeper/Personal Assistant, Live in vacancy wanted as housekeeper/au pair, to assist a busy family/elderly couple. I'm 26yrs old/British & speak everyday Spanish. Full UK driving licence. Responsible individual looking for a long term arrangement preferably. Full working history/references available on request.

I have worked since I left education at 17yrs old, mainly in administration/customer service roles. Been in my current job for nearly 5 years without a day off sick. I am the older sister in my family so used to looking after my younger brother when we were small. A lot of my friends have had their children, so used to accompanying most ages. I have a full UK driving licence, speak basic Spanish, studied French and German at school and I am pretty much fluent in Kurdish. Most of my friends are European so used to helping them to learn English.

I have lived on my own since 17 so am very independent and responsible. Both of my grandparents suffered with Alzheimer's disease so have good experience of looking after them. I'm very adaptable and pick things up very quickly whether it be a language or routine and have a lot of patience.
