LIVE-OUT HOUSEKEEPER FOR PRIVATE ESTATE IN SURREY

We are assisting an UHNW family with the recruitment of an experienced full-time Housekeeper for their secondary home in the countryside near Guildford, Surrey. The family are looking to appoint an experienced and dedicated candidate with prior housekeeping experience in a similar role to join their staffed household, so a candidate with a brilliant eye for detail and a team player mentality is required.

An expert in all household cleaning and laundry, you will need to have excellent knowledge of cleaning products and know how to care for fine fabrics and finishes. Working alongside 1 or 2 other housekeepers, you will be jointly responsible for the upkeep of this luxury home and will have a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, and a professional and discreet demeanour. The family visit the home predominantly on weekends, though they travel internationally on a frequent basis too, so there will be a mix of busier and quieter times.

Working from 9am-5pm Thursday to Monday, you should be a driver with your own car due to the location of the property and it is essential that you are child and pet friendly. The ideal candidate will be able to offer a 5-star unobtrusive service to the family and their guests when in residence, so an intuitive nature and the ability to read is very important.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Laundry and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics and ironing
• Making beds and changing bed linen
• Packing and unpacking for the principals
• Polishing silver and glassware
• Flower arranging
• Managing stocks of cleaning products
• Rubbish and recycling management
• Ad-hoc duties as required

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience within in a private household
• Fluency in spoken English
• Eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• Team player with a positive attitude
• High attention to detail and exacting standards
• Discreet, professional and unobtrusive
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Child friendly and pet friendly
• Located in the local area (Guildford area)
• Driver with their own reliable transport
• DBS checked or willingness to obtain a DBS
• Excellent checkable references
