Couple Job Housekeeper Gardener Isle of Man


Greycoat Lumleys Scotland have a lovely opportunity for a couple to work for a very nice family with older children on the Isle of Man. Living on the Isle of Man offers lots of benefits and the pace of life is relaxed and quiet. The principals are very nice people but are looking for a couple to employ who have their own lives and interests and appreciates the line between employer and employee.


There are other members of staff on the estate who would work alongside the couple.


The role is to start in the Autumn 2017. The main house has been redeveloped and the owners are there for more than half the year.


Duties included for the smooth running of the house and grounds

  • Housekeeping

  • The house must be kept immaculate on a daily basis

  • Laundry

  • Some cooking is required but it is very basic

  • A sound knowledge of gardening – 3 acres of main garden + 13 in total

  • Oversee another member of staff in the garden

  • Maintenance of the main house and machinery

  • Very occasional driving


The couple must have a flexible attitude to their work as they may be asked to do tasks they have not been asked to do before by the owners.


There are various estate vehicles for work purpose use.


The owners have two dogs that are required to stay with the couple when the owners are away – this is not optional so a love of dogs is essential.
