Housekeeper/Cook – Cotswolds

Up to £45k|Cotswolds|Permanent, Live-in

An experienced Housekeeper with confident family cooking skills is required on a large private estate in the Cotswolds. Separate self-contained accommodation is provided on the grounds of the main estate. The clients are a high-profile British couple with young children. NDA and enhanced background check required.

Suitable candidates will have plenty of private household or yacht experience and be willing to work weekends when the family are in the UK. You will be joining a wider team including groundsmen, PA, childcare and security.

Confident family cooking skills are essential for this role. A professional Chef can be brought in to cover larger numbers and formal dinners. The family will bring additional housekeeping staff with them when they travel to the estate from their London residence.
