Couple job

Location Other, France
Sector Private Households & Estates
Job Role Couple
Job Type Permanent vacancy
Salary Negotiable
Job Number  48400
Created 18 July 2018

Our client, a down to earth and friendly family, are seeking to hire an experienced couple to join them at their residence in the South West of France. The house is probably used for 6-7 months in total throughout the year at different times. This is a property that has been renovated to a high specification and it uses a lot of modern technology. You will need to be confident technologically and happy to learn and master the different systems. One of you will need to speak French – it is quite isolating otherwise.

 

Although the family are informal and down to earth, they prefer a couple who although friendly, are calm, generally keep to themselves and maintain the professional boundaries. Your hours of work shall vary – the house is much busier when the principal is in residence but outside of that, there is plenty of time for rest.

 

The accommodation option for you is flexible – accommodation is available in the main house itself or, the client may also look to rent a local property nearby, this is all open to discussion.

 

This position would suit a couple with the following skills:

  • Cooking – general Family cooking skills shall suffice – you will not be required to cater dinner parties but perhaps to help out and serve at table

  • Housekeeping – good cleaning standards, laundry & ironing

  • Maintenance and handyman work

  • Gardening – external contractors are currently hired – if you have good gardening skills then that would be very beneficial

  • Serve at Table

  • Running Errands and general household assistance work

  • Driving

  • Wardrobe and clothing care

 

This is a great opportunity for a couple looking for a long term position.

 

This position is being managed by Giles Bicknell. Please submit applications to giles@greycoatlumleys.co.uk
