Housekeeper/Housekeeper with the Housekeeping Agency in London
A housekeeper is a person who is hired to provide professional domestic services such as cleaning, laundry, and sometimes cooking and errands. Usually only wealthy households employ full-time domestic workers such as housekeepers, though many dual-income upper and middle class families hire the services of a housekeeper for periodic household cleaning. Considered a luxury by many, employing a full-time housekeeper may involve providing room and board in addition to a weekly or monthly salary. A full-time housekeeper usually does not have any involvement with children in the household but some of them have childcare experience and also baby sit or do nannies work.
