HOUSEKEEPER REQUIRED FOR A PRIVATE CHATEAU

An amazing opportunity awaits an experienced Housekeeper with a lovely family in their spectacular secondary residence on the outskirts of St Tropez. Working in a fully staffed private household, you will be entrusted with the care and upkeep of the newly renovated home. This position offers a chance to work in a team alongside another housekeeper, ensuring that this 8-bedroom home is maintained to the highest standard year-round.

With an excellent eye for detail, you will have good knowledge of cleaning products and know how to care for fine furnishings, materials and fabrics. Energetic and flexible in your approach, you will be responsible, reliable and consistent in your day-to-day tasks. You will be responsible for general housekeeping, laundry and ironing, occasional light cooking for the family, food and beverage service and laying and clearing of the table.

Other responsibilities will include grocery shopping, errand running and liaising with the rest of the staff, such as the gardener, cleaner and any external contractors, ensuring the smooth running of the property. The ideal candidate will be attentive, well-presented and have a strong work ethic and positive attitude whilst still remaining discreet and boundaried, offering an unobtrusive service. Having a full EU driving license is essential for this role.

Working 40 hours per week, you will manage your time effectively to ensure the home is always well maintained and spotless – flexibility to work weekends and public holidays is imperative for this role. If required, accommodation will be provided in a separate, shared 4-bedroom home with you own en-suite bathroom.

• Professional cleaning including dusting, hoovering, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms
• Exclusive laundry care (silk, cashmere, etc.)

• Independent and proactive way of working
• Discreet, boundaried and unobtrusive
• Fluency in English and/or German
