DAILY HOUSEKEEPER | BELGRAVIA

Excellent Salary D.O.E

 

Our client is seeking an experienced and fastidious Daily Housekeeper, who is able to undertake Laundry and Housekeeping to very high standards. The housekeeper must be able to follow instruction, work harmoniously with the housemanager and 1 other housekeeper, but show initiative on the occasions when they are working alone.

Almost nothing is sent to the dry cleaners while king-sized bed sheets are laundered and ironed by the housekeeper who must therefore really enjoy laundry, and be highly skilled in washing, including hand-washing delicates, pressing, valeting & spot cleaning.

When laundry duties are complete, the Housekeeper will assist the other housekeeper with the cleaning and presentation of the client's 3 neighbouring apartments (used by different members of the family). It is to be noted, that there is absolutely no requirement for the housekeeper to involve herself with any cooking, shopping, child or pet care.

The family are in residence approximately 8 months of the year, allowing the work schedule to be based on a 5-day week, but there are busy periods when the housekeeper will be needed to work a 6th day (Saturday or Sunday), although these days are given back in lieu, always the following week.

Housekeepers must be highly organised, efficient and confident in all aspects of housekeeping, and happy to undertake the odd task that is outside of the normal remit, such as helping to clean terrace furniture or valet the client's car

This role will suit a housekeeper with a sharp eye for detail, who loves to work in small team, that is well-run, and professional in its style.

Excellent Salary is offered to the right candidate / Salary DOE
