Live In Housekeeper Job Edinburgh Scotland


Greycoat Lumley’s client are looking for a Live-In Housekeeper for their home in the centre of Edinburgh. The family have two children and a busy lifestyle. They have always had excellent relationships with their previous Housekeepers who have left for family reasons rather than anything personal or to go to another role. There will be a handover with the current housekeeper.


The couple may go away on holiday or at the weekend and need the housekeeper to look after their two Labradors.

The Housekeeper may also be asked to go with the family to another property on the west coast of Scotland for long weekends in the summer months, where the housekeeper will be required to help with the visiting guests.

They are very flexible and all arrangements are made in advance so the Housekeeper would know what is happening and when.

The family are looking for someone who will muck in and be the extra pair of hands around the house. This job would suit someone who wants long term commitment and has exceptional attention to detail.


Duties will include:


  • Cleaning the house – 4 bedrooms

  • Laundry

  • Ironing

  • Tidying the house

  • Changing the bedding weekly

  • Recycling

  • Mow the lawn – small area

  • Walking and feeding the dogs

  • Caring for the dogs when the principals are away



This is a lovely opportunity for someone to work for a friendly and welcoming family in a wonderful location of Edinburgh.


The accommodation is very modern and functional. It is separate to the main house, with its own entrance.

The accommodation is suitable for a single person.


Being a driver is essential as the family will require the housekeeper to drive between the home in Edinburgh and the west coast of Scotland.
