London (Greater) SALARY: £80,000 - £80,000 PER: Annum TERM: Permanent
I have a wonderful opportunity for a Head Housekeeper and Chauffeur to work for my clients in West London.
My clients are a lovely couple with a beautiful home in West London, looking for an experienced domestic couple to manage the 5-bedroom property to the highest of standards.
The Head Housekeeper will be responsible for the upkeep of fine upholstery, antiques and an impressive art collection and will be responsible for wardrobe management and keeping the house in order whilst the principals are not in residence and full prep of the household in anticipation of their return.
The couple are expecting their first baby in August, so you will be used to working with a family and come with proven longevity with prior principals.
The chauffeur will again have longevity in previous roles with a family and will also have experience in overseeing the security of the property in the absence of the principals.
Housekeeping duties will include:
· Housekeeping (with the support of a full time, live out Housekeeper)
· Laundry, ironing, and fabric care
· Care of Antiques and delicate interior items.
· Flower arranging and to prepare the house for the arrival of the principals and guests
· Front of house, meet and greet guests
· Occasional informal family cooking,
· Kitchen support when the family entertain (Working alongside a private Chef)
· Provisioning for the household
· Running errands (quite a bit)
Houseman duties will include:
· Chauffeuring duties, and the upkeep and servicing of the principal's car
· Liaising with contractors and external parties.
· Security and property surveillance
· Care of the family dog when required
Accommodation provided is your own private residence, located at the rear of the family home.
Working hours will invariably be a 40-hour week, with flexibility to work longer hours when the principals are in residence.
The couple like to travel regularly, predominantly throughout the Summer, February and December.
They have a lovely Labrador, so you will be comfortable with a household with animals and little ones.
The couple pride themselves on having a loyal staff who stay with them for long periods of time, so I am looking for a couple who enjoy providing a consistently high level of service and growing with a family over time.
You will have a proven right to work in the UK and come with excellent checkable references.
