JUNIOR HOUSEKEEPER FOR UHNW – COTSWOLDS ESTATE

We have an amazing opportunity for a Junior Housekeeper to join a team supporting an UHNW family in their large country estate in the Cotswolds/West Oxfordshire. This is a busy family estate with lots of animals and multiple properties, and you will work alongside a solid team of experienced household staff which will enable you to learn the ropes quickly.  
 
You will be responsible for hands-on housekeeping alongside a team of full-time housekeepers, laundry and wardrobe management, packing and unpacking for the principals, assistance in the kitchen, service and assisting at events, as well as care of animals.
 
This is a varied position that will require flexibility and adaptability, so the ideal candidate should have a hardworking ‘can-do’ attitude and a willingness to learn and grow. You will be personable, friendly and have an optimistic disposition. The family are very respectful employers and look after their staff well – they are looking for a long-term commitment from the successful candidate.
 
Usual working hours are Monday-Friday 9am-6pm with the requirement to cover 2 weekends per month (time given off through the week lieu). Flexibility for hours will increase when the principals are not in residence. A driver is a huge benefit, but is not essential.
 
DUTIES TO INCLUDE:
- General housekeeping to a very high standard alongside the team
- Laundry, including clothing, fine fabrics, linens etc.
- Ironing and wardrobe management
- Packing and unpacking for the principals
- Light cooking for the family, and assisting caterers when required
- Service and assistance at events
- Provisioning and taking stock of household items
- Flower arranging
- Deal quickly and responsibly with any issues that arise
- Running ad-hoc errands
 
ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
- Previous cleaning or housekeeping experience is desirable
- Flexibility in terms of duties and changes of schedules
- Team player with a positive, can-do attitude
- Excellent communication skills
- Very high attention to detail
- Good standard of written and spoken English
- Trustworthy and able to handle confidential information appropriately
- Longevity as demonstrated by previous employment
- Able to prioritise and multitask effectively
- Right to work within the UK
- Excellent checkable references
