Family Background

Two busy families who live next door to each other currently share their much-loved housekeeper who is sadly leaving due to a change in personal circumstances. Both families live in a stunning countryside property of 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and love the countryside life!  It is essential that you are an animal lover as they both have lots of animals – from horses, birds, chickens, and three much-loved dogs.  They have a great attitude and life but need an extra pair of hands to help with family life! 


You should be confident with all aspects of housekeeping and be able to clean and care for the home to a high standard, with good attention to detail. Making beds, cleaning bathrooms and all areas of the house including organising the house and picking up and organizing cupboards.
You should have a pro-active, positive attitude, with an ability to get stuck in to busy family life and enjoy mucking in with the family and daily running of the house.  You should be happy to run errands, arrange the online shopping order, let contractors in, do occasional school runs and typically think on your feet.  The families are warm and friendly and the current housekeeper is very sad to leave. 
If you are happy to cook this is a bonus but not required.  You should be happy to help with the children in terms of occasional babysitting if required. 
You should be professional, polite and easy-going with a commitment to a long-term role with the families.
