LONDON BELGRAVIA – SW1
Unique opportunity for a very experienced housekeeper to work alongside the principal and the interior designer setting up this newly refurbished property in Belgravia.
This is a part time residence of a mature titled couple who spend approx. 2 nights in London each week, mid-week.
There is a small team already in situ who will transfer from the previous residence which consists of butler, and 3 housekeepers all of whom have worked for the family for 10 years plus.
The property has been refurbed to the highest level – will include large amounts of fine art, antiques, and special finishes. The principals are looking to this head housekeeper to take ownership of running and maintaining the property to the highest level.
You will need to have previous experience working for HNW employers, be used to fine fabrics, high end furniture, laundry, and wardrobe care. Ideally but not essential, you will have simple cooking skills and be able to prepare a breakfast, afternoon tea and a lady’s lunch, but the butler who knows the family very well will be on hand. There is a roof terrace, which may be used for entertaining.
Training for this position will be available at the principal’s country estate to enable the successful candidate to learn how the principals like their homes to run.
When the principals are in residence you will be required to live on site, a studio apartment for your sole use is available, but when they are not in residence you may choose to return to your own home.
Salary Negotiable depending on previous experience. Weekends off. This is a uniformed position. HU3248
