Daily Housekeeper – Knightsbridge

£24,000 to £28,000

 

We are looking for a fabulous Daily Housekeeper to join our client's household, which is a stone's throw from Harrods, Knightsbridge Tube station and other wonderful transport connections. The role is to start as soon as possible.

The property is a second home, so there are quiet periods when the family are away and busier periods when staff will need to make themselves available to work longer hours.

Working with a small dedicated team, this position provides an excellent opportunity to work in an established, friendly and dynamic household.
