EVENING HOUSEKEEPER FOR UHNW FAMILY – LONDON

We have a fantastic opportunity for an energetic, live-in or live-out Housekeeper for an ultra-high net worth client in a large residential property based in London. Our client is looking to appoint an experienced and presentable team player to cover the evening housekeeping slot. This role will cover all aspects of housekeeping, food and drinks service and occasional cooking duties over the weekend.

You will be working as part of a team of 3 rotational Housekeepers. Our client is looking for someone who has exacting standards, a keen eye for detail and can work autonomously, as well as communicate well with the rest of the rotational Housekeeping team. A large, 4 story home, this role requires someone who is energetic and can prioritise various duties across the large household. You will occasionally be required to perform service duties when the client is hosting guests, thus a background in yachting would be highly desirable, or a presentable individual who has experience serving to guests is essential.

An expert in all household cleaning and laundry, you will need to have excellent knowledge of cleaning products and know-how to care for fine fabrics and finishes. You will be required to cook occasionally and prepare casual lunches when the 2 children are home. Our client is looking for a team player with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, and a professional and discreet demeanour.

Prior experience within a high-net-worth household is essential, as well as prior experience of formal service. Working hours would cover evenings, and working days are flexible and can be negotiated (around 6 days a week, mostly evenings). There is an option to live-in, but this is not required.

DUTIES TO INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Cleaning including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing beds, cleaning bathrooms etc.
• Laundry and wardrobe management, including caring for fine fabrics and ironing
• Packing and unpacking for the principals
• Polishing silver and glassware
• Formal service and occasional cooking
• Greeting guests and offering refreshments
• Tidying after events
• Managing stocks of cleaning products
• Rubbish and recycling management
• Ad-hoc duties as required

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior housekeeping experience within in a private household or yacht
• Fluency in spoken English
• Eligibility to work in the UK
• Hardworking and dedicated
• Pet and child-friendly
• High attention to detail and exacting standards
• Able to work independently
• Trustworthy and reliable
• Excellent checkable references
