Job description

Very experienced, professional and knowledgeable gardener/handyperson and housekeeper/cook domestic couple sought who are looking for a fantastic, long-term position in a beautiful country home in the Cotswolds. They must be genuinely looking to settle down and be happy, honest and country loving people.

Job requirements

The gardener must be a genuinely fit and active person who is used to country life and who prefers to be outdoors, come rain or shine. The gardener needs to be able to turn their hand to most things, must take pride in their work and be able to manage their own time in order to maintain the immaculate grounds to the property which include lawns, woodland and borders. They should have an understanding of all garden machinery, have a practical nature and be able to carry out the maintenance for both the inside and outside of the property.

The housekeeper must be an organised and thorough hands on housekeeper, with very high standards and an eye for detail, responsible for the upkeep and cleaning of a beautiful home, to include the laundry, ironing, bed changing etc and some cooking. They need to be neat, tidy, completely reliable and with a happy nature.

The couple should both be real animal and children lovers, happy to muck in with a smile and should be genuinely looking for a long term position as this is a fantastic position for the right people where they will be valued and appreciated.  They should be able to demonstrate longevity and relevant experience in previous roles and have a real love and understanding of the countryside.

Immaculate, self contained, 2 bedroomed furnished cottage provided but sadly no dependents but one well behaved dog would be considered.
