Our client, with a substantial residence, close to Lewes in Sussex is seeking a Live-in Housekeeper to assist with the smooth running of their busy family household.

The residence consists of 10 ensuite bedrooms (5 are used day to day) as well as 2 further guest bathrooms. The family is made up of 2 adults and 3 children (age 9, 10 and 12) as well as a friendly cat and small dog so any candidate applying must be child and pet friendly. There is a Governess/Family Assistant employed who supervises the children most of the time, but there may be the requirement of some ad hoc childcare.

Duties include:

  • All aspects of hands-on housekeeping, including vacuuming, cleaning, dusting, and polishing
  • Laundry and ironing
  • Wardrobe management
  • Maintaining stocks of groceries/any other supplies
  • Ad hoc babysitting if/when needed
  • Family cooking would be a bonus but not essential

The ideal candidate would be highly experienced and hands on, confident with managing a large and busy family household. Must be friendly, trustworthy, and smiley with a calm, sunny disposition.

During the week it is just the family in residence, but they do have guests over the weekend, but it is rare for the residence to be ‘full’, usually an extra 2 bedrooms used.

Driver would be a bonus but not essential.

Accommodation: 1-bedroom maisonette with bathroom, living room, kitchen, and utility room. There is a further bedroom attached should the Housekeeper wish to have guests.

Working days/hours: 5 days per week, 9am – 6pm. Flexibility to work 1-2 weekends per month to assist when there are guests.

Salary: £35,000 - £42,000, depending on experience
