A busy couple who travel a lot internationally for work are looking for someone to look after their two high-energy dogs, while also managing the rest of their luxury London townhouse. They are looking to pay £30 - £32k (€35 - €37k) per year to someone who is great with dogs and willing to entertain their pets all day long. The candidate will be required to take the dogs for a walk every morning and evening, and while occasional weekends are required for special doggy outings, the rest of the time is free to spend exploring London.

The successful candidate will live with the couple in their six-storey townhouse in the upscale area of Kensington. They are looking for a hard worker who is fit and healthy, to ensure that every aspect of the dogs' lives is in safe hands. He or she will be expected to become the personal assistant to the two dogs, arranging all their appointments, managing their insurance and organising all of their meals.

Other duties include daily housekeeping, laundry, food shopping, greeting visitors and taking calls, running errands and simple, light cooking of evening meals when required. The area is close to Kensington Palace, and only a short 20-minute walk to Buckingham Palace and the rest of London. There are three subway stations in close proximity, Knightsbridge, Sloane Square and South Kensington, making it easy to visit every corner of London.

This dream job is offered by Silver Swan Recruitment and applications are now open here.
