( 45964 ) An excellent switched on and proactive housekeeper is needed for a couple to look after them and their large period home on a large estate. Their present housekeeper is retiring after 12 years with the family.

We are looking for someone who can multitask, flexible with great common sense, who is capable, has finesse and a good sense of humour!

You will take your holiday allowance when they are not in residence.

There are no specific childcare duties, however you must be child friendly for when the grandchildren visit.
