You will be working in London as part of a team of one other housekeeper and a houseman. Your role will include cleaning and presenting the home to the highest standards, laundry and ironing and you will also need to know how to look after designer fabrics, greeting guests and serving refreshments, running errands and anything else that is needed to make sure that the properties are run properly. There is no real cooking with this job (unless you like to cook) but you should be happy to prepare a breakfast tray or make a simple lunch.

Any hours of overtime that you work you can take back when the Principals are away. Salary will be in the region of £550 to £650 net per week depending on experience.
