TEMPORARY HOUSEKEEPER FOR HNW FAMILY – HAMPSHIRE

We are working with a lovely high net worth family who are looking to appoint a dedicated and hardworking Housekeeper to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained across their beautiful 7-bedroom family home. This is a maternity cover contract for 6 months and they are looking for a personable, self-directed, and proactive Housekeeper, preferably with prior experience on super yachts.

You will be responsible for the daily cleaning of the property and ensure that the household is spotless at all times. This is a quintessential country home with lots of antiques, precious woods and other delicate surfaces and materials, so you will need to have excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings and use of appropriate cleaning products. Daily duties will include general and deep cleaning of all areas, laundry care and ironing, as well as occasional errand-running.

Usual working hours are Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, with occasional babysitting for their 11-year-old son required (maximum twice per month and paid as overtime). The family also have four labradoodle dogs, so it is essential that you are pet friendly and happy to help with pet care when required. A driver is essential for this role.

• Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Laundry, ironing, and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
• Caring for antiques
• Managing stocks of cleaning products
• Rubbish and recycling management
• Flower arranging
• Greeting tradespeople and contractors
• Occasional babysitting
• Pet care – feeding, walking, and taking to appointments
• Ad-hoc duties as required

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end private household or luxury yacht
• Fluency in English

• Eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• High attention to detail
• Able to work independently with little supervision
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Excellent checkable references
