Full Time

A great UHNW family are seeking a Head Housekeeper to join their team in this large, staffed home - 8000 sq ft, 4 beds, 3 floors - in Hyde Park.

We are seeking an experienced, dynamic Head Housekeeper who speaks good English. You must have lots of energy, good organization and supervisory skills to ensure this busy home runs smoothly and efficiently and is kept to a high standard. This role is hands-on as well, working alongside the other housekeepers.

The Principals work and there are 2 school age children; no pets. The house is naturally quieter during the week and busy on weekends.

Ideally the family are seeking a Head Housekeeper who is also a good cook, but if there is a really great candidate who isn’t a good cook, they are open to considering this. Family eat fresh, organic and healthy meals. During the week a light breakfast (eggs, smoothies) and dinner, 3 meals daily at weekends. However, the cooking is mainly for the children as the Principals are out most evenings and the family also eat out at weekends. If they entertain, they bring in a professional Chef.

They are a lovely family who treat their staff very well. A PA, Driver, Nanny and cleaner are already employed. A 3rd HK will be employed after the Head Housekeeper is in place.

You must have previous experience as a high end housekeeper, ideally within an UHNW resdience, be in the UK and available for in person interviews.
