Our client is looking for an experienced Housekeeper to take a hands on role looking after a large family home in rural Herefordshire.  The house is a large period property situated in a working farm environment about 10 miles south of Hereford.  Although in a rural location, the main town is very accessible for shopping and leisure.

  • Dealing with trades and contractors

  • Household admin including keeping stock and ordering provisions

  • Assist when the family are entertaining 

  • Planning the needs for and managing additional staff when needed

  • No cooking / no childcare

  • Helping with the dogs and looking after them if the family are away - feeding and letting them out

  • Responsible for household security alongside other staff living onsite

Candidates must be happy to work within a household with children and be around animals. 

Must hold a full UK Driving license and be a confident driver. 

Must be computer literate. 

Must have excellent references and an Enhanced DBS check

This will be a full-time role based on 40 hours per week, normally Monday to Friday with occasional weekends (perhaps once per month)

Accommodation is a fully self-contained 1 bedroom flat which is adjoined to the main house but with its own separate entrance.  Furnished or unfurnished.  Kitchen / Dining Room / Drawing Room / Bedroom & Bathroom.  Pets considered but only indoor cats and dogs must be dog, child and livestock friendly.  Employer covers council tax, water and heating.
