ALL-ROUNDER FAMILY ASSISTANT FOR LONDON PROPERTY

We have a brilliant opportunity for a motivated, versatile, and well-presented household all-rounder to look after a 5-bedroom apartment for an UHNW family of four in Central London. The successful candidate will be well versed in all service and housekeeping duties, as well as being able to handle any administrative requirements – this is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to take on more responsibility and to grow into their first house manager role.

The family spend a few weeks per year at this property, so they are looking to appoint a professional and trustworthy individual to maintain the property in their absence, however, it is essential that the candidate is fully available and on hand when they are in town. The role will require a candidate with a flexible, ‘can-do’ attitude, the ability to work autonomously, and excellent communication skills. When the family are in residence, duties will also include light cooking (specifically breakfast) and driving the family to various appointments, airport pick-ups and drop-offs etc.

Other duties throughout the year will include hands-on cleaning and the upkeep of the property, managing contractors, suppliers, and tradesmen, errand running and personal shopping for the family, as well as managing all inventories and administrative duties pertaining to the role. The family have two school-aged children and though no childcare duties will be required, they are looking to appoint a child-friendly candidate.

Working 48 hours per week across 5 days, this role is live-out, so best suited for a London-based candidate. Prior experience within a high-net-worth household or onboard a super yacht is highly desirable, and a full, clean UK driving license is essential.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Concierge duties and personal shopping
• Food and beverage service
• Cooking for the family – simple, light meals & breakfast
• Hands-on cleaning of the property
• Laundry and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics and ironing
• Packing and unpacking for the principals
• Polishing silver and glassware
• Managing stocks of cleaning products
• Administrative duties & keeping inventories updated
• Liaising with suppliers, tradesmen, and contractors
• Driving the family when required
• Ad-hoc duties as required

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience within in a private household or yacht
• Fluency in spoken English & eligibility to work in the UK
• Full, clean UK driving license
• Hardworking and dedicated
• High attention to detail and exacting standards
• Able to work independently
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Excellent checkable references
