Temporary Full Time Housekeeper


Greycoat Lumleys’ client is looking for a cheerful and diligent housekeeper to manage a range of properties in an idyllic and very remote peninsula of West Coast of Scotland, on a 14,000-acre crofting estate. The applicant must be friendly and hard working as they will be working closely within a small and energetic team of three. There are a range of roles that will be required during the employment in addition to housekeeping duties, including providing administrative support to the team, updating social media pages and assisting with marketing and administrative management of the holiday cottages and other estate properties.


The roles are varied and no two days are alike. Onsite training will be provided, such as quad biking, boat handling, first aid and using the estate radios. Opportunities for gaining extra qualifications can be sought after.

It is a fixed term until October 2019, with the potential to extend contract to a permanent position. We are looking for a housekeeper who can begin as soon as possible.
