London, Notting Hill, Salary £35,000 per annum
This is a super role for an experienced Housekeeper who also loves dogs! Our client - a young couple with a baby - are looking for a highly professional and trustworthy Housekeeper to look after their 4 storey residence in Notting Hill. This is not their prime residence - they spend much of their time in the country and travelling overseas but it is essential that the home is kept in a ready state for when they are in London.
You will be responsible for the running of the house including liaising with contractors, cleaning, doing the shopping prior to the Principals' arrival, and ensuring that when they are in residence, fresh flowers are in place and bedrooms are prepared to the standard required.
You must be self-motivated, comfortable working alone (although liaising with the PA and country home Housekeeper), respectful and have very high standards.
The couple do have two lovely dogs and you will be asked to walk the dogs on occasion when they are in residence. It is essential for this role that you really are very comfortable with medium and large dogs.
Training will be provided by the country residence Housekeeper to show you the preferences and expectations of the Principals.
It is important that you have the experience to know when the Principals require formal or informal service.
This is a super role for a candidate who feels competent using their experience and skills to run a high profile 4 bedroom house on their own.
Excellent spoken English and strong communication skills are a must. Travel with the family on occasions with request - this is a desirable. However, the client has stressed this is not essential if the Housekeeper does not want to travel, this is OK.
Monday to Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm with occasional weekends (with notice)
