JUNIOR HANDYMAN / HOUSEMAN FOR HNW ESTATE

We are currently assisting a lovely family with the recruitment of a versatile Handyman/Houseman for their countryside estate in rural Berkshire/Hampshire. The ideal candidate will be a jack of all trades, able to turn their hand to anything and will enjoy a varied role that will include general maintenance tasks and the upkeep of the property alongside another handyman.

Duties will include the maintenance and cleanliness of terraces, walkways, outbuildings, and garages, as well as looking after the tennis court, swimming pool and spa. There will be great diversity within the role and other tasks will include painting and decorating, gutter clearance, cellar care, plant room maintenance, washing & fueling cars, and DIY tasks such as changing lightbulbs and changing filters on washing machines.

The family are very down to earth and respectful employers who treat their staff extremely well, so they are looking to appoint a true team player who is happy to muck in where required, which will include assisting the housekeeping team over busy periods with general housekeeping, service, and back-of-house cleaning at events. You will also be tech-savvy, able to manage the AV/IT requirements in the home and have an unflappable, can-do attitude.

Working 5 days per week (to include weekends) you will have 2 consecutive days off in the week. Having a full, clean driving license and being an animal lover are essential requirements for this role and additional qualifications such as a shotgun license or having carpentry or plumbing skills would be extremely advantageous, but not essential.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE:
• General upkeep of exterior buildings, fences, machinery, and tools to include the oversight of boiler, generator & plantroom
• DIY duties in the interior such as painting, putting up shelving, changing light bulbs etc.
• Cleanliness and maintenance the swimming pool, spa & tennis courts
• Cleaning of gutters and pipework, walkways, driveways, and other hardscape areas
• Ensuring the security system, AV/IT, entertainment, and lighting at the property are in good working condition
• Fueling and washing cars
• Assisting the housekeeping team where required with housekeeping and service
• Animal care – dogs, goats, chickens etc.

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior experience as a handyman/houseman for a private family
• Fluency in spoken English
• Positive, professional can-do attitude
• Hands-on team player with the ability to turn your hand to anything
• Full, clean driving license and your own car
• Non-smoker
• Willingness to obtain an Enhanced DBS check
• Excellent checkable references
