Daily Housekeeper

£25,000 - £35,000, depending on experience

 

A lovely Chinese family, based in the heart of Knightsbridge, is looking for two live-out Housekeepers to join their household, working as part of an established team, reporting to the House Manager.

Housekeepers are required to work 9am til 7pm, 5 days on and 2 days off; working every other weekend on a rotational basis. The Family are respectful of their staff's time off and will rarely intrude upon, or try to change, days off. The Family seldom entertain in the evening, so there is almost no requirement for late shifts.

Although the role does not require any travelling, it would be a benefit if candidates were open to the idea of travelling with the Family in the future. There is no requirement for driving or childcare, however, candidates may be asked to run ad hoc errands, which may include making small deliveries or shopping.

The Family have no pets as they have severe allergies to animals.

A permanent contract offers statutory holidays, Bank Holidays and breaks during work shifts, as would be expected.

A generous salary is offered, with a higher salary offered to those who bring all requisite skills and experience.
