Private Staff, PA & Yacht Crew Vacancies

Housekeeper – Penthouse (ideal for yachtie)

£35,000.00 + salary review|Belgravia, London|Permanent, Live-out

An experienced Housekeeper with private household or yachting experience is required for a newly-refurbished luxury penthouse in Belgravia. The selected candidate will be joining a large global team of private staff, including housekeeping, chefs, butlers, drivers and PAs.

The UHNW Principal is not in residence full time and travels on a constant basis throughout the year. During such times, the schedule is flexible Mon-Fri 9-5 with the option of starting earlier or later.

With the Principal in residence, you will be on a rota with additional housekeepers, chefs and Butlers to ensure the property is covered at all times. Weekends are not often required, but applicants must be flexible when the Principal is in London.

The role requires a housekeeper with energy who can keep up with a fast pace when the Principal is in residence.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join a team of talented household staff. The role would certainly evolve as time goes by due to the expanding property and business portfolio of this client.

Travel is not expected, but this may change in the future should the selected applicant be open to travelling with the Principal and family members overseas (optional, not essential).

Those with a yachting background would be of interest to the client as they would like to replicate the setup and high standards of their yacht at the penthouse in London. This is a bonus, but not essential. Those with pure private household experience are also welcome to apply.

The client retains his staff long-term, making this an excellent opportunity for any top-level housekeeper to grow and develop within the team as time goes on.
