Housekeeper – County Durham

£32,000 to £38,000 + Accommodation

 

A Head Housekeeper / House Manager is required to work at a lovely, eight-bedroomed private home situated in a market town, in County Durham.

It is essential that candidates offer proven experience and show they can take responsibility for keeping a home to a very high standard.

While the role requires general-house management capability, we are looking for a 'hands-on' candidate  who will enthusiastically embrace housekeeping duties, taking care of the many precious soft and hard finishes, including clothes and fabric care, laundry, pressing, preparing the house for visits, ensuring a warm reception and that every comfort is afforded to guests etc.

Candidates must show that they are able to work as part of a team when required, but must also be happy to work autonomously, systematically and efficiently.

  • Trustworthy and discreet
  • Prior experience of working on a country estate is important
  • The housekeeper will report to a managing agent

 

The clients are relaxed about themselves, while their home is important to them, so this is where they expect their staff to focus their attention, to ensure it is always beautifully maintained and presented at all times.

Working Days/Hours: Monday to Friday, 8am to 4.30pm Weekend cover/as and when required plus when principals are in residence.

While a staff car is available for work related trips, candidates should have their own car for private use...
