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.


The couple may go away on holiday or at the weekend and need the housekeeper to look after their two dogs. The Housekeeper may also be asked to go with the family to another property in Scotland for holiday periods. They are very flexible and all arrangements are made in advance so the Housekeeper would know what is happening and when.


Duties will include:


  • Cleaning the house – 5 bedrooms

  • Laundry

  • Ironing

  • Children’s breakfast

  • Tidying the house and dishes after meals

  • Changing the bedding

  • Recycling

  • Mow the lawn – small area

  • Some simple family cooking

  • 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 very nice family in a wonderful location. The accommodation is very nice and separate to the main house. The accommodation is suitable for a single person.


Being a driver is a bonus but not essential.

Job Number: 43979


Days: Monday to Friday role

May work some evenings or weekend and time in lieu is then given.
