Executive Housekeeper Roles

We provide staff who live-in or out of their employer’s houses…

As the job title implies, the primary role of an executive housekeeper is to supervise housekeeping staff. However, depending on the size of the household, this could also be a ‘hands-on’ role [typically taking care of expensive items of clothing, furniture, ornaments and paintings] or extend to other areas of household management [hiring and supervising contractors and non-housekeeping staff]. Please visit the Job Descriptions page for a full list of duties.

House Manager Roles

A house manager ensures the smooth and orderly running of a house and, often, looks after many properties. As the job title infers, he or she is not usually involved in management of the grounds or estate. Supervising, scheduling and training staff are just some of the duties and, therefore, familiarity with domestic roles and responsibilities is essential. Other duties include purchasing, budgeting, security matters, making travel arrangements for the principals and planning and co-ordinating events. Increasingly, as technology advances, house managers are also expected to have knowledge of complex systems relating to heating, air conditioning, lighting and security as well as being computer literate. Please visit the Job Descriptions page for a full list of duties.

Household PA Roles

Our management staff have over 4 years’ relevant experience and have been interviewed and checked by us…

Also referred to as a private secretary, personal secretary or just PA, this person will manage the principal’s personal, professional and household affairs. Mainly a full-time occupation, there are part-time PAs available who divide their responsibilities between a number of families. In a small household, house management and other housekeeper jobs may also be undertaken. Duties may include secretarial work, diary management, dealing with incoming and outgoing mail, managing the household accounts, making travel arrangements, hiring and supervising contractors and organising special events. Previous experience of working in a private household is essential together with initiative and good computer skills. Please visit the Job Descriptions page for a full list of duties.

Housekeeper Roles

We are happy to advise on salary rates and other employment matters….

At the very least, a housekeeper will clean the house and wash and iron clothes. However, many will undertake additional tasks – care of special floor and kitchen surfaces, care of antique furniture and other special items, shopping for groceries, dealing with tradesmen and contractors, looking after pets, childcare (nanny housekeeper), cooking (cook housekeeper) and, above all, ensuring the smooth running of the household. Please visit the Job Descriptions page for a full list of duties and potential housekeeper jobs.

Housemaid Roles

We are often able to introduce you to suitable candidates within hours of your enquiry…

A houseman or housemaid maintains the private quarters and all guest bedrooms. They deputise for the laundress, regularly ‘spring clean’ rooms and carry out the reasonable requests of the housekeeper. They could be regarded as resident domestic helps or assistant housekeepers.  These roles are often sought in addition to other housekeeping positions and can assist with a range of housekeeper jobs.

Laundry Staff Roles

We are happy to advise on salary rates and other employment matters….

As the name would suggest, the laundry staff handle the day to day laundry functions at the family residence, generally excluding any dry cleaning or staff laundry.  They would be expected to maintain the laundry room to a high standard, keep the stocks of cleaning materials and laundry products up, wash and press bed linen, towels, table mats, napkins and table cloths, as well as laundering the employer’s personal clothing.  They can also launder any guest clothings as required.
