Daily Housekeeper | Nr. Gerrards Cross

Salary £30,000

 

Our client is seeking a meticulous daily housekeeper to work as part of a team, at a substantial residential property located South of Gerrard's Cross.

For periods of time the property is unoccupied, but it must be maintained in a permanent ready state, so The Principal, or their wider family, can arrive at short  notice.

The housekeeper will report to the housemanager, and will need to work collaboratively with other colleagues, including a butler, housekeepers, maintenance and security staff.

While the property is run with a small team, when the family arrive they bring with them a travelling team staff, including chef, maids, butler and velar. So it is doubly important for the housekeeper to have a positive, friendly, can-do attitude, so that she can fit-in seamlessly with the whole team.

When the family are not in residence the hours of work are based on a 5-day week, working predominantly Monday to Friday with only a little flexibility required. However when the family are in residence, greater flexibility is required and expected, which will include weekend work - extra hours/days worked will be given in lieu. 

Note: It is vital that candidates drive and have their own car to get to and from work
