DOMESTIC COUPLE FOR UHNW ESTATE – WILTSHIRE

We have an amazing opportunity for a highly experienced, hardworking and talented Domestic Couple to support an UHNW family in their country estate in Wiltshire. Working as a Couple, you will hit the ground running to maintain the upkeep of this country house and grounds to exacting standards.

The estate is occupied by a young family with 2 school-aged children, who live between the estate and their London residence. Overseeing all functions of the housekeeping, laundry, ironing, cooking, and childcare at the weekends, you will also assist the grounds team to ensure the gardens and outside areas are maintained to a very high standard.

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 (on average 3 nights per week) – 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 cottage provided on site, with bills included. You will also be provided with a car. Working 5 days per week (usual days off are Monday and Tuesdays), with flexibility required for hours. Occasional travel may be required to the London residence, and very occasionally overseas.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE:
• 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 at weekends, 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
• Trustworthy and handles confidential information appropriately
