Housekeeper (multiple homes)
London and Dorset, Salary £35,000-£40,000 per annum
Housekeeper - London and Dorset
A private family household are seeking to recruit a Housekeeper to assist with the upkeep of multiple properties for the Principal, working as part of a team. Your primary responsibility will be to ensure that the properties are maintained to the highest standard. Every day you will be directly involved in completing laundry and cleaning tasks yourself. You will be responsible for the appearance and upkeep of the house, both on a day-to-day basis and during hosted events. You will also work closely with the other household staff to assist with some valet, wardrobe and personal duties. The role will require flexibility to travel between three properties – two in London and one in Dorset.
We are looking for someone who has a hands-on approach and is willing to undertake daily household cleaning and laundry tasks. You will have a strong character and good communication skills. You must be trustworthy and able to demonstrate that you can handle confidential information appropriately.
As this role is a 'mobile' one, you will ideally have your own car and if not, a clean driving licence is required.
Minimum of 5 years' Housekeeping experience. This is not a management role so no need for Head Housekeeper experience.
Hours of work: 40 hours per week, although flexibility required if guests are present
The hours will flex between 11:00-19:00 / 12:00-20:00 / 14:00-22:00 for 6-7 months of the year when the Principal is in residence. The rest of the year the hours can be a little more standard and flexible.
The Housekeeper will be contracted for 5 out of 7 days, and will work a weekend at least twice a month.
Salary: £35,000-£40,000 live-in or live-out (accommodation could be available)
