OXFORDSHIRE
RESIDENTIAL DOMESTIC COUPLE
HOUSEKEEPING COUPLE

The property is a Georgian Manor House in extensive gardens and grounds near Oxford with a successful and growing Wedding and events business alongside being an occasional weekend family home. We seek a domestic couple to look after the house and those using it for Events. Hours: 5 days per week, predominantly 9:00 – 17:30 with one hour off for lunch.

 

FLEXIBLE WORKING ARRANGEMENTS
This position will only suit a housekeeping couple willing to work a very flexible schedule.   Hours are long during the peak wedding season period (typically involving weekend work) and shorter during the off-season period.   Overtime hours can be accumulated during the peak season and then used for time off in lieu (TOIL) during the off-season period.   This job will therefore be ideally suited to couples who wish to travel or take extended periods off during the winter period. 

RESPONSIBILITIES 

Housekeeping – The majority of time will be spent with housekeeping duties (cleaning, laundry, bed-changing, looking after house guests).  The House has 12 bedrooms and there is also an event marquee in the grounds. 

House Maintenance – Experience with light house maintenance (small fixes and painting) would be desirable and the housekeeping couple would be expected to monitor problems and find solutions for day-to-day maintenance issues at the House, including management of tradespeople.

Event Operations – Working closely with the House Manager to organise all Event preparations, including setting up the House and marquee to a specific plan, liaising with wedding suppliers, carrying equipment, moving furniture, post-event damage and stock checks and arranging of event deliveries and collections.

Events – Ardington House has a busy events schedule (typically 40-50 events per year) and is particularly busy during the wedding season which runs from April until October.  During this period, weekend and evening work will be required, with days off to be taken on weekdays.  Events are run by an event manager, but the housekeeping couple will need work on rota on event days to provide hosting, to coordinate with the catering and event management teams, to assist with arrivals and departures of guests and to secure the House during events (weddings take place in the Marquee and once guests have moved to the Marquee, it is the housekeepers’ responsibility to monitor access to the House, which is provided only to overnight guests).

Other – When the family is in residence, occasional cooking, driving (one driving license is essential), shopping and waitering will be required. There is a full gardening team, but occasional garden, pool and tennis court maintenance work may be required.   Ability to assist in the events office to cover holidays of the events team would also be a bonus.

REPORTING

The Housekeeping couple will report to the House Manager. The owners do not live in the House but visit periodically with their families.  The House may also be occupied at times throughout the year by holiday rental clients.

ACCOMODATION & SALARY

There is a self-contained, private fully furnished and spacious flat within the House, with all bills and WIFI included. There is an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court, which staff are permitted to use when clients are not in residence. Salary circa £45,000 Gross per annum plus annual bonus, 5 day working week to include weekends.  Position start: March 2021. Strictly Non Smokers and excellent level of English required. Ideally both to drive and have own car. ( HU3655)
