EXPERIENCED HOUSEKEEPER FOR UHNWI – MAT COVER

We are working with an ultra-high net worth individual who is looking to appoint a dedicated and hardworking Housekeeper to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are maintained across their large country residence. This is a maternity cover contract (initially for 9 months) and is open to both live-in and live-out candidates.

This client is a lovely gentleman to work for and his household staff remain with him long-term. This is a fully staffed property with an Estate Manager, Gardeners, a Chef and also another full-time Housekeeper who you will work collaboratively across all cleaning, service, laundry and ironing.

Responsible for daily cleaning of the property, you will ensure that the household is spotless at all times and that the principal’s expectations are always met. You will also be responsible for wardrobe management, all laundry and ironing, as well as packing and unpacking for trips. In addition, you will provide service to the principals throughout the day and will cook healthy and nutritious meals for the principal on the Chef’s days off.

If undertaken as a live-in role, you will have your own high-end cottage on the grounds of the property – however please note that no guests are able to visit or stay with you at the cottage. The role is also open to live-out candidates.

Usual working days are from Friday to Tuesday (including all weekends when the principal is in residence) and hours worked are usually between 8am-2pm and then again from 5pm-8pm. Occasional travel to the principals’ London residence may be required. A driver is essential due to the remote location of the property. There are also dogs on the estate so you must be pet-friendly.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, hoovering, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
• Laundry, ironing and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
• Packing and unpacking for the principal
• Service for the principal
