Live In Couples job Ribble Valley
Our client is looking for a new live in Couple to look after their 4 bedroom 17th Century home set in landscaped parkland. This is a lovely role for a couple looking to be based in Lancashire and who have previous private household experience. You will be working for a family with school age children and dogs. Full-time and Part-time Gardeners also employed.
The role will be to ensure that the house is kept running smoothly and to a high standard at all times.
Duties will include:
Hands on cleaning, laundry and ironing for the family
Help with the children including babysitting/supervising once a fortnight on average in normal times and occasional school runs.
Some sole charge and proxy parenting also if mum and dad are away (very occasionally). During this time the Housekeeper will be required to stay in the main house.
No cooking is required although some help would sometimes be helpful
General handyman to look after both the inside and out of the property (having some kind of previous trades experience an advantage)
Driving for the family (errands, school runs, airport and station for example) and looking after the household cars (new and classic).
Laying the fires
Helping the gardener throughout the year with general maintenance gardening, lawns, woodland and parkland. During the summer this can be up to two full days mowing (ride on mowers).
Responsibility for the security of the property – 24hour CCTV is installed. You will be expected to be at the property while the family are away during half terms and the summer holidays
Dog walking and feeding – both to be dog friendly
Both to be drivers
This will be a full-time role, 5 days normally Monday to Friday with some weekends (every other Saturday on average for babysitting and driving when the family are at home although they do travel during the summer and school holidays).
Separate large 2 bed house for the couple – sorry no family (although happy for family to visit with notice) – sorry no cats but well behaved dogs considered. Couple to pay own phone, Internet and TV but otherwise client will pay all other utilities.
You will need to have your own car although there are vehicles available for work use.
