Live-in Domestic Couple
Norfolk, Salary £800 net per week
This is a super new opportunity for an experienced Live-in Domestic Couple (Housekeeper / Cook / Gardener / Driver / DIY) to work in a newly renovated historic residence in Norfolk. The Principals have completely renovated the property, which contains 5 bedrooms, and continue to restore and extend the accommodation by developing the stable, barn etc which will ultimately provide bedrooms for shooting weekends (although no shoots take place on the Estate).
The Principals tend to be in residence from Monday to Friday and in London for weekends. During the Season, however, this varies and they will often be in Norfolk for weekdays and weekends with guests.
It is key that you are pro-shooting as this will be a main focus for the Estate as the additional accommodation is completed.
Your roles will be Housekeeper: responsible for all the cleaning, laundry, ironing of the main residence and the current two cottages. Either one of you should be a good family cook and ideally have experience in cooking game but certainly capable of producing a hearty breakfast and good country food. (Please note that during the Season, extra Chefs will be brought in).
Other duties to include looking after the cars, collecting people from the station and airport, DIY, gardening (to assist the professional gardening team), and feeding the animals which at the moment consist of dogs, goats and cats (but may increase). Experience of cleaning guns would be a bonus but not essential.
It is key that you are happy to work autonomously and set your own schedules ensuring all the duties are completed. Ideal start date would be October. However, if you wish to start beforehand, that could be discussed at interview stage.
Essential that you both have driving licences.
Working days: 5 days per week (Monday to Friday out of Shoot Season)
Accommodation: Cottage on the Estate - one bedroom, kitchen, sitting room and bathroom.
