TEMP LIVE-IN HOUSEKEEPER FOR HNW COTSWOLDS ESTATE

A wonderful UNHW family of four are looking to appoint a hard working, well-presented and meticulous temporary Housekeeper with a can-do attitude and a pleasant, calm disposition to work alongside two other housekeepers and the House Manager for 3 weeks this summer, from mid June to early July. The ideal candidate will have an excellent eye for detail, be friendly and approachable, yet boundaried and discreet.

All food is included in the package. Prior yachting experience is highly desirable, but not essential.

• Deep cleaning and preparing the house for the family’s arrival

• High attention to detail
• Able to work independently with little supervision
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Calm, discreet and respectful
