EXPERIENCED DOMESTIC COUPLE FOR UHNW FAMILY

We have an amazing opportunity for a highly experienced, hardworking and talented Domestic Couple to support a UHNW family in their country estate in Wiltshire and residence in Central London. Working as a Couple, you will hit the ground running to maintain the upkeep of the country house and grounds to exacting standards, working alongside another couple. 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 (a few nights a 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 private cottage provided on-site in Wiltshire, with bills included. When working in the London residence, you will have your own bedroom and bathroom on the top floor of the property. You will also be provided with a car in both Wiltshire and London. Working 5 days per week, with flexibility required for hours. Travel overseas may be required very occasionally.

- 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

- Ensuring all bedrooms are always clean
- General cleaning and upkeep of the grounds
- Sweeping and keeping the formal gardens clean and tidy
