Trainee Estate Housekeeper / Houseman

Posted 5 February by Reed Featured
Do you have excellent attention to detail?

Do you enjoy keeping things immaculately clean and presentable?

Are you flexible with your working hours to earn additional overtime?

REED Business Support in Newbury are currently working on behalf of our client, a beautiful private Country Estate on the outskirts of Newbury, to recruit for a housekeeper/houseman responsible for a large variety of duties in a physically demanding position across a 200-acre estate with 30 guest bedrooms!

This is an exciting position, suiting someone with experience in hospitality, events or a background working in the service industry from a private household, hotel or other similar domestic position. If you're service orientated and respect the confidentially and privacy of owners and high-profile guests then this position could be for you!

You do not necessarily need to have housekeeping experience as full training will be given. The varied responsibilities will include but not limited to:-

- Daily detailed cleaning of estate properties including bedrooms, bathroom and other living areas
- Assisting with laundry and ironing of ben linens & guest clothing
- Restocking linen cupboards
- Checking all services in the estate rooms are working correctly (including entertainment technology)
- Serving and preparing drinks and buffet food for guests
- Making beds and turn down service

You'll be working a 08.30am - 16.30pm Monday to Friday (40 hour) working week but flexibility will be required over public holidays, evenings and weekends during busier periods and when the family and guests are in residence. This is currently about 50% of the year, with June & July being especially busy. You will be paid overtime for all hours over 40 at an excellent rate of pay.

... And the best part of all?

You will have your lunches given to you for free on a daily basis and your one hour break each day is paid for!

If this sounds like the ideal position to you then please apply online!
