Daily 2nd Housekeeper - Russian speaking - Kensington, London

A second Housekeeper role (bilingual) is being created in this prestigious London Household that is used as a secondary residence. We are currently searching for a housekeeper for a large residential property in Phillimore Gardens, which is close to High Street Kensington and the Tube Station. The housekeeper will work along side our current housekeeper and Butler/Houseman.

Ideally the new candidate will have a 5 star hotel back-ground, and at least 1 year experience working for a private family. The role will require someone who is a consummate all-rounder; someone who can maintain the house in a constant ready-state, and then when the family are in residence, look after the daily servicing of bedrooms, bathrooms, and entertaining spaces, while also dealing with luggage, laundry, pressing, packing and unpacking, as well as helping the chef in the kitchen or the Butler with service duties.

The property is decorated to an extremely high specification, with fragile soft and hard finishes, so it is absolutely vital that candidates have an established understanding of how to clean, and know exactly what cleaning products should be used on each finish.

The property also has a large collection of art and objet d’art, so candidates must have a natural ability to instinctively move around precious objects with the required level of caution - this is really not a job for someone who is in anyway clumsy!

The working week is Wednesday to Sunday, 9 - 5pm and, when the family are in residence, it will be necessary that the housekeeper is very flexible with her hours, and able to work longer hours (not often). There would also be a big advantage if the housekeeper could stay over occasionally, using one of the bedrooms in the house, so that she was readily available for earlier starts - but this is not a deal breaker.  

When the family are NOT in residence, the Estate Manager is aok about you having scheduled weekends off. Everything is workable! Salary approx £28,000 gross pa. Start asap.  Email resume to cv@ljwrecruitment.com
