JUNIOR LIVE-IN HOUSEKEEPER FOR UHNW HOME – NEWBURY

A brilliant opportunity has become available for a junior Housekeeper to work for an UNHW family of four in the Berkshire countryside on a permanent, live-in basis. The family are looking to appoint a dedicated team-player to join an existing household team, working alongside two senior housekeepers. The ideal candidate will be hard working, teachable and willing to collaboratively work with other household staff to ensure the smooth running of the property.

A secondary residence for the principals, duties will include preparing the home for the family’s arrival, including performing housekeeping tasks such as making beds, changing linens, laundry, and ironing. Service skills such as setting the table and knowledge of informal table service would be highly advantageous but are not essential.

An energetic approach and flexibility are essential for this role, as well as being child and pet friendly, as the family have two children under the age of 10 and have two medium-sized dogs – please note that no childcare duties will be required in this role. Due to the rural location of the property, being a driver with your own car is essential for the role.

Working 40-45 hours per week across 5 days per week, you will have two consecutive days off during the week, but flexibility will be required at times. Accommodation is provided in a lovely and spacious private 2-bedroom cottage, separate from the main house.

• Cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Greeting guests and offering refreshments
