BELGRAVIA – SW1
Monday to Friday 9-4pm
International business couple ( no children ) are currently renovating a large apartment in Belgravia which will be completed in approx. 12 months’ time. They currently have a smaller apartment close by where you will work until the new property is complete but on occasion you will be asked to go to the new property. The couple live mainly in Europe and visit London regularly during the year, sometimes for 2 -3 days at a time, and other times for up to 2 weeks.
They would like to employ a full time permanent and professional housekeeper, with traditional experience of HNW homes who is capable of running the property, overseeing contractors and dealing with deliveries etc. The apartment is being refurbished to very high standards and you will need to have previous long-term experience of fine fabrics, linens and special finishes. There is a lot of art work and fine objects, so a careful meticulous cleaner is essential. Duties will include the day to day general housekeeping, cleaning, laundry, wardrobe care – running errands, organising flowers shopping for the household and occasionally some personal shopping etc.
The principals travel frequently and have numerous homes all over the world, therefore it is essential that you can work unsupervised, be responsible and reliable and commit to working the hours that you are engaged to work. The daily hours are flexible but when in residence you may be asked to work a Saturday and take time back. In addition the principals have several small dogs, so you should be dog friendly but you will not be expected to care for them.
You will on occasion be asked to travel to the principal’s country estate and you will be required to work Christmas – joining the staff at the country house where they entertain. Non-smoker essential.
Salary £30,000 Gross 2 days off per week. (HU3230)
