Live-in Domestic Couple, Private Estate, Surrey
London (Greater) SALARY: £70,000 - £80,000 PER: Annum TERM: Permanent
I am looking for a couple to work at a beautiful countryside property in Oxshott, Surrey, to start as soon as possible. The couple that previously worked in the property did so for many years; and the family are looking for a couple that can offer the same level of commitment.
The Principals are a lovely family, consisting of two adults and three mature children, aged 13, 10 and 9, who spend every other week at the property.
Hours are Monday-Friday, 8-6, with 20 days of annual leave. You will live within the property, in a separate area of the house, with your own entrance, bedroom, bathroom and a small kitchenette.
The candidates should hold a valid UK driving licence; and feel confident driving locally to collect groceries and run errands. A vehicle will be provided, and this can also be used by the couple when off duty, after work and at the weekends.
The family have a four pet dogs, so experience caring for pets would be beneficial, as you will be required to feed the dogs and walk the dogs on occasion.
Duties will include; housekeeping and laundry (with help of daily cleaner), grocery shopping, ensuring fridges are well stocked and drinks are replenished, preparation of healthy meals, maintenance of property, swimming pool and garden (alongside gardener), reporting issues and fixing accordingly, assisting with school run and ensuring cars are cleaned and tanks are kept full.
The family like to travel regularly, however you will not be required to travel with them, you will instead stay behind and ensure that the house is well cared for and undertake any seasonal cleaning duties.
Overall, the family are looking for a friendly, hard-working couple that are hands-on and can use their own initiative to get things done efficiently; and ensure the smooth running of the household.
