Position: Live-in Housekeeper - ASAP
Salary: £700 net/£500 net when not in residence
Location: Eaton Square
Days: 5 days a week
Hours: 8.00am to 8.00pm with a lunch break, and some flexibility as there can be longer hours

The Principal, living in SW7, is seeking an experienced Live-in Housekeeper to work 5 days a week to ensure the maintenance of a 3 bedroom flat on a daily basis.  Most importantly, you will be in charge of the 2 little dogs, often 3, prep their food, walk them to the park - up to three times a day from 40 minutes to 1 hour.  The Principal travels quite a lot and will expect, while not in London, full deep cleaning of the property and to look after the dogs while he is away (which is rare). 

You will be provided with your own room and bathroom; 2 days off (usually Sat / Sun) a week; and 28 days' holiday per year.

On your days off a cleaner will be covering for you but you will need to make sure you have cover in place before booking your holidays to make sure the house is constantly looked after.

It is important the homeowner’s wishes are clear from the outset, as housekeeper duties can include but not only:

  • Preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner – must be an excellent cook (salads, pastas, etc)
  • Keeping refrigerator clean and discarding out-of-date items
  • Tidying and cleaning bathrooms, bedrooms and living areas
  • Cleaning unused rooms on a less frequent basis
  • Polishing brass and silver, antiques and fine furniture
  • Cleaning windows inside
  • Collecting, washing, ironing and returning laundry to the appropriate place
  • Hand-washing delicate items
  • Managing the wardrobe
  • Arranging dry-cleaning
  • Answering door
  • Feeding and exercising pets on a daily basis, appointments to the vet, grooming etc
  • Carrying out weekly grocery shopping
  • Handling petty cash and debit cards
  • Carrying out any other tasks that the employer may reasonably ask
  • Packing and unpacking suitcases

To be considered you must:

  • Have 5-years' experience within a similar position
  • Flexibility is a must to be considered for this position
  • Up-to-date CV with checkable references
  • Dog-friendly – this is a must
  • Sharp eye for detail
  • Great sense of humour and a can-do attitude
