A wonderful opportunity for an experienced Housekeeper/Caretaker, who wishes to live in, to work for a really lovely older couple.  Accommodation is a self-contained apartment (attached to the main residence) with own entrance, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and sitting area.  

No young children (Clients are in their 70s), and no animals.

The residence itself is 8,000sq ft, although it is only the Clients themselves that live there.  It is a 10 minute drive from Cork Airport, a 20-30 minute bus journey or 20 minute car drive to the centre of Cork. 

They do have a cleaner who comes during the week for the deep cleans, so the majority of the work will be ensuring that the household runs smoothly, overseeing any maintenance, food shopping, light housework, changing of linen and turning down the beds every day, and looking after of antiques and silverware.  Responsible for alarms and looking after the property when the Clients are away.

It is not at all essential that you cook, although if you can of course this is always a desirable.  Driving, again desirable but non-essential due to the great transport links.

Hours are Monday to Friday, although when they are away travelling you will be asked to remain in residence during that time, and that may be over weekends to look after the residence. 

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have relevant household experience
  • Have excellent checkable references
  • Be trustworthy, efficient and of a nice nature

A truly lovely role.

Accommodation: as above, self-contained, and all bills paid.

Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30am-5.00pm

Salary: €400-€450
