Live in Couple Job, Oxfordshire


A lovely and busy family are looking for an experienced and hardworking couple to join their traditional country estate. The family currently employ a full time nanny and a full time housekeeper. The grounds are fully staffed with game keepers and gardeners.


The ideal candidates must be happy to work as part of a team and work alongside the already existing housekeeper, taking care of the property, laundry and ironing for the family. The family are also looking for a strong and capable chef to be part of the couple confident for both family cooking and occasional dinner parties along with shoot lunches through winter 


The other duties will include driving and valeting of vehicles, additional help within the house as required (help with IT/AV, simple repairs, assisting with deeper cleaning in and outside the house etc.) and service and assistance with any family social occasions and the estate shoot.

The family are soon due to have a fourth baby, with the three existing children locally schooled.

In addition, there are three older children who are with the family on alternate weekends.


The family are looking for an experienced, reliable and loyal couple.  Flexibility is key in this busy household, so good team players, with organised time management skills and a hands-on approach will work best.  


Fluent English is essential as is the need to like animals as the family have a dog, 3 cats and a number of other small pets.
