EXPERIENCED HOUSEKEEPER FOR HNW BELGRAVIA PROPERTY

We are assisting a HNW family with the recruitment of an experienced and hard working full-time Housekeeper for their large property based in Central London. The property has been finished to the highest specification and will require a Housekeeper with an exceptional eye for detail, specialist knowledge of how to care for high-end surfaces such as marbles, rare woods, and glass as well as a ‘can-do’ attitude to keep this home in pristine condition.

You will work collaboratively as part of a team to ensure that very high standards of cleanliness are maintained across the property, and will also be jointly responsible for laundry, ironing, wardrobe management and inventory management. A fully staffed household, the family are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, friendly and self-motivated Housekeeper with a team-player mentality to remain with them long-term.

The family live overseas and use their London property as a secondary residence, so usual working hours are Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm. When the family are in residence (their visits are usually short) flexibility will be required to work longer hours and weekends with overtime paid.

• Good prioritisation and time management skills
• Trustworthy and reliable; good team player
