Head Housekeeper

We are looking for an experienced candidate to take on the role of Head Housekeeper at a residence in Knightsbridge. You must have a very sharp eye for detail, be extremely organised and have good management/training skills and ability.

Up to £45,000.00 per annum
Knightsbridge, London
Permanent Live-Out

This is a very busy, large scale property which runs with around 7+ staff members. You must have the flexibility during school term time to work occasional weekends, but during all school holidays; you will be on a Monday-Friday rota (you will always be given 2 consecutive days off). Clients travel during all school holidays to overseas residences/yachts.

The household is not overly formal and great teamwork is expected of all staff, with everyone helping out where needed. The existing Housekeeping team are in need of training and guidance, which is why the clients are keen to bring a highly experienced Housekeeper OR yacht stewardes into the fold, so you can improve the general standard and keep an eye on the execution of individual tasks.

Any candidates looking with a Super Yacht background would be of particular interest to the client. This is a great opportunity for ex yacht crew to get into a private household, with clients who are looking for longevity, loyalty and are offering a competitive salary to achieve this. (a yachting background is merely a preference but is NOT ESSENTIAL)
