Our client, with a stunning estate in rural Northamptonshire, is seeking a Live-in Housekeeper/Cook to start as soon as possible.

A part of the estate is open to the public 2 afternoons a week from May-September - therefore it is essential these areas are kept impeccably clean.

There are 2 principals and their 5 friendly dogs - it is a must you are comfortable around dogs.

The principals have grown up children who like to visit during the weekends.  You will be working alongside 3 other morning Housekeepers, 1 who has been employed by the family for over 12 years.  It is important to note they are looking for a Live-in Housekeeper/Cook who is willing to join the team.  They do not require a Head Housekeeper. 

Duties include (but not limited to):

  • Hands-on housekeeping – cleaning, tidying, organising
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Changing bed linen
  • Preparing bedrooms for guests
  • Cooking would be a great bonus – simple, tasty dishes (roast chicken for example)- from time to time for up to 10 people
  • Occasional dog care (feeding/walking) when principals are travelling

Ideal Candidate: 

  • Reliable
  • Good level of spoken & written English preferred
  • Takes pride in their work 
  • Eye for detail 
  • Enjoys cooking 
  • Flexible
  • Driver with own car would be preferred due to the location of the residence.  Amenities are around 10–15-minute drive away.

Working days/hours: TBD, however, the client would prefer something like the following: Monday to Friday, 8.00am/9.00am – 5.00pm/6.00pm with flexibility to cover weekends when required (time off in lieu will be given)

Accommodation: A beautiful separate 3 double bedroom, 2-bathroom cottage with living area & private garden (partners welcome, possibly dogs welcome too depending on the breed) - this is a few metres from the main home.

Salary: circa £40,000 GPA
