FULL-TIME HOUSEKEEPER FOR UHNW FAMILY IN HAMPSTEAD

We are working with a lovely UHNW family of 5 in Hampstead, London to source a highly skilled, pro-active, and versatile full-time Housekeeper for their 9-bedroom property. The ideal candidate will be organised, able to use their initiative and plan ahead, managing their time effectively to ensure the smooth running of the household. The family have three children (pre-school and primary school ages) and two dogs, so they are looking for a child friendly and pet friendly Housekeeper.
 
You will ensure that very high standards of cleanliness are maintained across the property and will be responsible for all general and deep cleaning duties, laundry, and ironing, as well as grocery shopping and errand-running. Though the children have a full-time Nanny, the family are looking for a child-friendly Housekeeper who would be able to assist with childcare on occasion. You will need to have excellent knowledge of how to care for luxury furnishings, delicate fabrics, and high-end finishes such as marble, stone, and wood.
 
The ideal candidate will be organised, personable and friendly and have a ‘can-do’ attitude, as well as being polite, discreet, and loyal. This is a busy family home, and the family are looking to appoint a Housekeeper who will remain with them long-term. A driving license is essential for this role.
 
Working from Monday to Friday, usual working hours are 10 hours per day and the role is open to both live-out and live-in candidates. Should accommodation be required, the Housekeeper will have a private en-suite bathroom and share a kitchen and lounge with other live-in staff members.
 
DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
- Daily cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen
- Laundry, ironing, and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics
- Polishing silver, cleaning, and maintaining marbles, stones, and wood
- Managing grocery and cleaning product stock levels, ensuring sufficient levels are always maintained
- Rubbish and recycling management
- Assisting with childcare when required
- Errand-running
 
ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
- Prior housekeeping experience in a high-end private household
- Fluency in English and eligibility to work in the UK
- Hardworking and dedicated
- Team player with a positive attitude
- Proactive and organised
- Trustworthy and reliable
- Valid driving license
- Excellent checkable references
 
If this sounds of interest and you meet the essential criteria, please do apply within, or get in touch to find out more.
