HOUSEKEEPER/HANDYPERSON/SECURITY/GROOM
Monday to Friday 8.30 to 5.30 pm
Five bedroom contemporary family home set in 5 acres of land. A rural location with limited village services 1 mile away, but close to Watford, serviced by good rail links and within easy driving distance of the M25. Informal family of five adults. There are 4 very small ponies, who are cared for by a part time groom in the mornings, but you will need to be able to prepare hay nets at lunch time, feed and medicate, collect droppings and stable the ponies in the evening, so previous horse experience is required and a genuine love of animals. The family will in the near future have dogs too.
The family seek a pro active, creative and forward thinking couple who are used to working together. The position comes highly recommended by current and previous couples.
Duties will include all general housekeeping duties, daily cleaning, washing, ironing, household errands, and potentially dog walking twice daily in all weathers. There is no cooking with this position, no assistance is required for entertaining and driving is limited to running errands and occasional airport runs. There is a pool and spa complex to be kept clean and maintained and specialist pool contractors to liaise with.
An experienced handyperson is required with a really good skill base to accommodate most DIY type duties, you will be required to care for all property maintenance indoor and out which will include local tenanted properties. A gardener is employed but some assistance will be required. House sitting and security during the owner’s absence is also part of the role and hence holidays must be taken outside of the family's holidays.
Salary £800 npw –mainly weekends off (some flexibility required to house and animal-sit when the owners are away) 1 bedroom, self-contained, furnished apartment. Business use of car.
BOTH must be non-smokers, BOTH speak fluent English, BOTH drive manual cars and have experience driving in the countryside with own car for pleasure. Sorry NO PETS or dependants. PREVIOUS DOMESTIC COUPLE EXPERIENCE AND LONGEVITY IN THE POSITIONS IS ESSENTIAL
