LIVE-IN TRAVELLING HOUSEKEEPER – LONDON & LA

We are assisting a UHNWI based in both London & Los Angeles with the recruitment of an experienced, dynamic, and meticulous Housekeeper who will work in both locations depending on where the Principal is based. The client is looking to appoint a dedicated, friendly, and hardworking Housekeeper with a good eye for detail for the long term.

Daily duties will include cleaning fittings and fixtures, tidying and cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms, and other living areas, as well as assisting with laundry as and when required. With prior experience and excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings and the use of appropriate cleaning products, you will report and work alongside the Butler daily to ensure the smooth running of the Principals home. Excellent knowledge of the care of high-end and delicate fabrics is essential for this role.

This position requires a great deal of flexibility, as you will be expected to travel internationally with summers spent predominantly in London, and winters in Los Angeles with some extra travel between.

This is a live-in role with lovely spacious accommodation in the main residence, and all travel expenses included. Working 6 days per week, hours will be from 9 am-6 pm but flexibility will be required on occasion.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  • Ensuring standards of cleanliness, hygiene, and tidiness in all bedrooms, corridors, guest rooms, and all other areas are maintained to the highest level
  • Cleaning accommodation areas, which includes changing bed linen, making beds, replacing towels, cleaning bathrooms thoroughly, vacuuming, mopping, and dusting
  • Assisting with laundry when required
  • Reporting any household maintenance to the Butler
  • Undertake additional duties from time to time within the responsibility level of the post

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
  • Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end private household or bespoke hotel
  • Fluency in English
  • Exceptional eye for detail
  • Discreet, unobtrusive, and adaptable
  • Able to work independently with little supervision whilst still being a good team player
  • Eligibility to live and work in the UK. Assistance will be provided to process a visa for time spent in the USA
  • Excellent checkable references
