SUPER, HANDS ON MANAGEMENT COUPLE OPPORTUNITY BASED IN THE COTSWOLDS
Our clients are looking for an exceptional couple to look after their part time country residence. As the principals are not in full time residence you must be happy to work weekends when they are there taking Tuesday and Wednesday off or Wednesday and Thursday. When the clients are not visiting the property you can have weekends free by prior arrangement.
You will work alongside another couple and will have the experience and dedication to be able to offer direction to them in your roles as a management couple as well as work alongside them in a hands on capacity.
You will work a normal 8 hour day when the principals are not at the property but must be flexible to work longer hours when they are there and take this time back in lieu during the week.
The clients are informal but looking for strong candidates who can achieve a high level of working standards at all times with excellent service skills and experience of running private households. You must know how to work in both formal and informal environments to accommodate the changing needs of the family. When the family visit the number will be from 3-8 people which will include children as well. Although child care duties are not required for the role you must be very child friendly and pet friendly as they also bring their dog with them.
This is a large property and therefore requires experienced and knowledgeable couples with proven capabilities in all areas and excellent checkable references.
One of the couple must be a Chef or very good Cook! When in residence the family and guests will require Breakfast, Lunch and dinner. The family usually arrive on Friday afternoons and leave again on Sunday afternoons. During school holidays this may differ and they may be in residence for extended periods however they do travel as well and invariably use the residence 2 weekends per month on average. The food must be organic and fresh, there is a village farm close by for provisioning and an organic vegetable garden on site for the kitchens use. There are gardeners working at the property however if you would like to look after the vegetable garden and have the knowledge to do so you can take this over? Food must always be presented well and they are looking for a high level of cooking to dinner party standard.
Aside from the cooking when the family are in residence, there will also be maintenance duties in and around the property, light handyman duties, overseeing contractors, security, cleaning to a very high standard –laundry and ironing and other reasonable duties required of you.
