Roles and Responsibilities


When the lodge is busy, extra hours will be required. It must be stressed that The Lodge is of a significant size, and because it is also exceptionally well appointed and includes hard and soft interior finishes that require specialist care, the head housekeeper must have the requisite knowledge to be able to instruct the housekeepers on how to care for everything.

All staff must be comfortable working in a property than is run on a formal basis and must be familiar with working in an environment that is maintained to the highest possible standards.

The position involves hands-on housekeeping to an exceptional standard and the head housekeeper must be confident in caring for antiques, fabrics, artwork and fine crystal and china. During the time that the family are not in residence, the property needs to be maintained in a state of readiness, allowing for family/guests to arrive at short notice.

The head housekeeper role is to manage, supervise, train and work alongside household staff ensuring correct standards and practices are maintained. A well-ordered routine will need to be developed for daily tasks during family visits and an in-depth program to include specific tasks when the Lodge is unoccupied. This is a practical, hands-on position.

The partner will assist in the smooth running of the Lodge and Estate where necessary, including some butler and chauffeur duties and helping out where and when required – this is an extremely varied position. The ideal candidate will have experience of working in a formal house, ideally with some experience working as a butler.

A driving licence is essential and there will be a vehicle provided for work purposes.

Accommodation

All bills (electricity, oil, council tax, phone etc) are paid too (unless excessive use!)
