Live in Couple Job
A lovely client of Greycoat Lumleys is looking for a strong couple to take care of their beautiful weekend residence in the Cotswolds. This is the ideal role for a couple who have a pro-active attitude, happy to help where needed and have a great work ethic and work well with others. There is an additional live out housekeeper to support the couple and ensure the house is kept to a high standard. And two live out gardeners. A strong housekeeping / front of house and maintenance / garden maintenance couple would be ideal.
Duties to include but not limited to:
- Service / front of house when the family are in residence
- Household maintenance
- Interior and exterior maintenance
- DIY, painting and decorating
- Supporting the gardeners
- Swimming pool maintenance
- Security of the property
- Driving duties, washing of the cars
- Animal care – Small dog, ducks and chickens
- Household admin tasks
- Running local errands
The family visit the property 2-3 weekends per month, except the school holidays where they travel overseas. They have a small family dog that does require care when the family travel abroad. They employ two full time gardeners at the property but a candidate that is happy to help when needed is ideal. It is essential that one candidate is a driver with a clean licence.
The ideal candidates must have worked within a private household before or perhaps with a yachting background. This is a beautiful home and deserves to be kept to a high standard.
