Vacancy: Live Out / In Housekeeper Jobs
Our household staffing agency has been helping professional housekeepers find domestic housekeeping jobs for over a decade. We are one of the top international domestic staffing agencies with our head office located in London, Mayfair. If you are a professional housekeeper who takes pride in your career, we are here to help you find the perfect domestic housekeeping job.
Our new client is looking for an extremely experienced and professional domestic housekeeper. The principal is very pleasant to communicate with and extremely professional whilst being understanding and flexible. They will expect the same in return from the housekeeper they hire. The domestic housekeeping position is located in Gstaad as well as Geneva. We will be looking for a candidate who enjoys nature and the outdoors.
An important point to note; we can only consider candidates who have extremely high attention to detail, who have extensive experience and expertise in working for discerning clients as well as a highly professional approach to attending the principals requirements. The successful applicant will be treated with the outmost respect whilst the principal will expect nothing less from you.
The domestic housekeeper who we will be chosen to represent our agency and who we will recommend by us is expected to be highly knowledgeable and experienced with wardrobe management, working with high end fabrics and have a detailed understanding of how to correctly manage luxury laundry. Previous professional laundress experience will be a bonus.
We are looking for applicants to whom polishing silver, cleaning marble, looking after antique furniture and fine art comes as second nature. In this job, a candidate will only be successful if during their career they have had experience with table setting and silver service. Although this it is not something that will be done often or in fact a requirement, it is a good standard on which we can base the level of service and understanding of etiquette required for success. Previous work experience in a luxury hotel will be considered as a bonus.
The principal expects the successful candidates to be flexible and trustworthy, to have a happy hands-on attitude whilst understanding when to take a step back. The professional domestic housekeeper must be well-organised and polite.
