An experienced couple is required who can between them take ownership of the day to day running of this property including the house and grounds. The housekeeper will have cleaning support during the principals “in residence” periods and there is grounds and maintenance support available too.
You will need a keen eye for detail, have excellent housekeeping and laundry skills and be able to maintain the wardrobes. The property is modern with high tech support systems, there are 4 acres of grounds with stables and outbuildings which include gym, pool and sports facilities. The gardens are lawns, hedges and flower beds, mainly a garden maintenance role.
There are 4 cars to care for and you must be willing to wash and polish the cars up to 4 times per day when in use, the principals are extremely particular about the cars. You will refuel, organise MOT and service and ensure that oil, water tyres etc are all checked regularly. There will be some airport runs and driving to events occasionally.
Ideally one of the couple will have table service skills and be able to meet and greet guests, serve drinks etc.
