EXPERIENCED PART-TIME HOUSEKEEPER FOR CHELSEA HOME

A lovely family of 4 in Central London are looking to appoint an energetic, versatile, and experienced part-time live-out Housekeeper for their four-storey, 6-bedroom family home. The ideal candidate will be organised and self-motivated, able to manage their time effectively and will have a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude.

You will ensure that very high standards of cleanliness are maintained across the property, and will be responsible for laundry, ironing, wardrobe management and caring for delicate items such as cashmeres and silks. Further duties will include the day-to-day cleaning of the property, organisation of the home, taking receipt of deliveries and liaising with tradesmen and external contractors when required. You will need to have excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings and use of appropriate cleaning products. Any knowledge or experience of light cooking will be seen as a bonus but is not an essential requirement.

The family are looking for a loyal and child-friendly Housekeeper who will remain with them long-term and require someone to work 30 hours per week, either working 6 hours per day from Monday to Friday, or 7.5 hours per day across 4 days per week – they can be flexible for the right candidate. A driver is not essential and there are no pets at the property.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Laundry, ironing, and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
• Polishing silver, glass, marble, and other high-end surfaces
• Rubbish and recycling management
• Managing stocks of cleaning products
• Flower arranging
• Greeting tradespeople and contractors

• Fluency in English and eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• Energetic and self-motivated
• High attention to detail
• Able to work independently with little supervision, good team player
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Excellent checkable references

If this sounds of interest and you meet the essential criteria, please do apply within, or get in touch to find out more.
