Our Clients, a Middle Eastern family who reside in a 6 bedroom, 6 reception property in Ascot, are looking for a live-in Housekeeper to start ASAP. The Clients have two grown up children who also visit on occasion, although on the whole it is mainly the male principal who comes into residence - 4-5 times per year for a couple of weeks each time. However, it may be a while before they come to the UK due to COVID-19 but the house needs to be kept in a ready state.
The Housekeeper needs to have a minimum of 3-4 years' private house experience and a meticulous eye for detail. The Principal is extremely organised and particular so has things set in a certain way which needs to be followed.

The Housekeeper must be prepared to work a 6-day working week when the Clients are not in residence, and 7 days per week when they are in residence for short periods of time only.
You should have a strong work ethic with a calm and easy-going manner. You will be liaising directly with the PA and Estate Manager when the family are not in residence.
Candidate should have an up-to-date DBS, or be prepared to obtain one.
