Newly created position for a new build, modern residence of a young family close to Windlesham.
The property is large, immaculately presented- 22,000sq ft, which includes a gym, swimming pool and cinema complex. The grounds extend to 4 acres.
There is currently a large outdoor project in progress which includes landscaping of the gardens, planting, building of tennis court and hence numerous contractors to supervise and monitor.
The housekeeper will be responsible for the day to day cleaning of the rooms in use, laundry, ironing and occasional food preparation and cooking. If cooking, then it will be purely for the owners and not every day. Family and friends visit at weekends and eventually events and parties will be held, so any service skills will be beneficial.
The owners have a new baby, so a child friendly person is required as eventually there may be occasional babysitting. Mum is very hands on with the care of the child. There are no pets.
Partner will maintain the grounds and gardens, ideally you will have some knowledge of gardening, but you do not need to be a qualified horticulturist. You will need to have good maintenance skills, be IT literate and be able to learn the mechanisms for maintaining the pool area and plant room.
You will take care of the family cars and be open to driving the principal into his London office when required. You will need a good level of English as you will manage and liaise with external suppliers and contractors.
As this is a new and developing position, additional duties may become part of the role, as the house is used to its full potential eventually there may be some informal entertaining and a degree of flexibility will be required.
Salary negotiable depending on experience. Self-contained one double bedroom apartment with private entrance, an option to live out is also available with an increase in salary. 2 days off per week (plenty of weekends) Average 45-50 hrs per week. (HU3278)
