Daily Housekeeper | Stockholm + Travel

Excellent Salary and benefits DOE

 

We are looking for a housekeeper, to work for a lovely professional couple and their young family who are based in Stockholm for much of the year.

The housekeeper must be professional and highly-skilled and able to undertake a wide array of housekeeping and laundry duties.

It is essential that the housekeeper is able to work under the supervision of the family's Housemanager/PA, while working alongside and seamlessly with the existing full-time nanny. The family may also employ a freelance chef for very busy holiday periods.

While the employers are extremely hands-on, and really enjoy taking full responsibility for looking after themselves and their children whenever they have the time, the housekeeper will sometimes be asked to help with simple food preparation and/or assistance in the kitchen, and/or to step in and help the nanny with child care duties. Therefore, some experience of working with children, combined with a proven kind and cheerful personality is also essential.

The role provides the opportunity for the housekeeper to travel with the family to their other European homes, which includes locations in Portugal and Italy - travel is made normally during traditional school holidays.

IMPORTANT:

  • Candidate must have proven experience of working and living in the Scandinavian peninsular, as the long-winters, extended periods of darkness and extreme cold temperatures and dry-air are hostile and bleak to the uninitiated!
  • Candidates must be naturally cheerful, a proven team player, and someone who is discreet, efficient and highly-organised. It is also important that candidates present excellent checkable references.
