EXPERIENCED DOMESTIC COUPLE – CENTRAL LONDON

We have an amazing opportunity for a highly experienced, hardworking and talented Domestic Couple to support an UHNW family in their Central London residence. Working as a Couple, you will hit the ground running to maintain the upkeep of this luxury property to exacting standards. The house is occupied through the week by a young family with 2 school-aged children, who live between their London residence and their country estate in Wiltshire. Overseeing all functions of the housekeeping, laundry, ironing, cooking, and childcare during the week, you will also assist with light maintenance and gardening, and well as oversee the security of the property

In addition to housekeeping duties, the lady of the Couple will be required to care for the children and sleep in with them when they are in residence (usually Sunday-Thursday night) – this will likely only be for the next year or two until they are older and more comfortable to sleep by themselves. This role will be live-in with your own bedroom and bathroom on the top floor of the property, with bills and use of a car included.

Working 5 days per week (Sunday evening – Thursday evening), with flexibility required for hours. Occasional travel may be required to the Wiltshire residence, and very occasionally overseas.

· Management of all household laundry, including clothing, fine fabrics, linens etc.
· Ironing, pressing, folding and appropriately hanging/storing all items
· Daily cleaning of the property
· Ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained throughout the household
· Childcare during weekdays, including sleeping in with the children
· Cooking for the family daily
· Provisioning and taking stock of all household items
· Flower arranging
· Polishing antiques, marble and silverware
· Ensuring all bedrooms are always clean
· General cleaning and upkeep of the grounds
· Sweeping and keeping the formal gardens clean and tidy
· Managing external contractors
· Deal quickly and responsibly with any issues that arise

 ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
· Previous experience in a Couples role supporting a UHNWI within a private estate
· Very high attention to detail
· Team players
· A positive, can-do attitude
· Excellent communication skills
· Good standard of written and spoken English
