A Top Housekeeper | County Durham

Salary £30,000 DOE

 

We are looking for a top-notch Housekeeper to work on a non-sporting Estate of about 50 acres, including a main house and outbuildings etc, located in County Durham. There is a gardener employed, and the client is looking for a handyman/driver too, temporary help may be engaged during busy periods.

The housekeeper will look after a beautiful 8-bedroom Grade-II listed Georgian House not far from Barnard Castle. 

The owner is seldom in residence, so applicants must be happy to work on their own, without close supervision. It is vital candidates can be relied on to maintain the house to immaculate standards, which will require them having proven experience of caring for fine antiques, art and silver etc.

The House must be kept in a state of permanent preparation to allow the owners, their family and/or guests to arrive with minimum, and sometimes  short-notice. It is, therefore, essential that the highest standards of cleaning and general maintenance are constantly maintained to ensure everything is always impeccable. 

This Housekeeper role will only suit someone who loves cleaning and gets pleasure from organising the presentation of a lovely home. 

The housekeeper will need to develop a well-ordered routine for daily tasks during family visits, and an in-depth housekeeping programme to include high and spring cleaning routines when the house is unoccupied. 

Lastly, candidates should exhibit a happy and cheerful disposition and always be friendly and approachable.

To repeat, this is a practical, hands-on role cleaning job.

Lovely, self-contained accommodation can be provided, with all bills found.

IMPORTANT: Candidates must drive!
