Job description

Recommended post with valued Staff of Distinction client for energetic and enthusiastic domestic couple to look after an informal residence on the borders of Somerset/Dorset.

Duties to include high standards of housekeeping, laundry, family cooking and general maintenance duties. One member of the couple must enjoy cooking and if not already a competent cook be happy to learn. It is important that both are happy working inside the house particularly if the family are entertaining. A gardener is already employed, so very occasional help in the garden would be appreciated but not necessary. Useful for both to drive to help with errands and drop-offs, but one is essential. Candidates must be animal friendly as the employers have a dog & very occasional dog sitting may be required.

Separate coach house provided as staff accommodation – spacious 1 bed, with sofa bed in sitting room also. Regret not suitable for dependants, but small sociable pets welcome.

Working hours are generally 40 hours spread across 5 days per week, mostly Monday – Friday. The family enjoy privacy at the weekends when not entertaining but you will need to be flexible to work approximately one (max two) weekends a month.

Top salary negotiable for super star candidates from £850-£1000pwn.

Interviewing now to start ASAP/ideally by end May 2019.
