Live In or Live Out Housekeeper Job Midlothian Scotland
Greycoat Lumleys' client are looking for an experienced Private Household or 5* Hotel Housekeeper. This role will suit someone who is well organised and able to manage the house being proactive in the duties that need to be done. The couple live in a beautiful house in Midlothian and want someone to be responsible for the day to day housekeeping of the 5 bedroom house and also their flat in Edinburgh New Town. The couple are both in and out of the property on a daily basis.
The week would be divided up between Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at the house in Midlothian and Monday and Thursday in the New Town flat which is used by the couple, family and friends when in the city. These days do need to be flexible as the flat is not used every week so it makes more sense to focus on the main house.
Communication with the couple is important they want someone who will ask quesitons rather than not tackle extra jobs.
This is not just a cleaning job, it is about ensuring the house and flat are kept at a very high standard of cleanliness and order at all times. Someone who walks past the mail on the front door mat or dishes left in the kitchen are not suited to the role. Discretion and a respect for privacy is essential.
The duties will include:

  • The day to day cleaning of the property
  • Tidying up - ensuring everything has a home and is put away
  • Ensuring deep cleaning is carried out regularly
  • Having a plan of what jobs are done when i.e. cleaning the fridge, defrosting the freezer
  • Letting the dogs out into the garden (2 dogs)
  • Laundry
  • Ironing and putting away
  • Recycling
  • Grocery shopping if the principals have been away
  • Shopping for household supplies

A driver is essential with their own vehicle due to the two locations – there is a parking space in Edinburgh.

Start Date: ASAP (Happy to wait for someone to give notice)
Job Number: 47461
Day/Hrs: Monday to Friday 40 hr week
Accommodation: Cottage in the grounds of the Midlothian property – 1 or 2 bedrooms
Council tax and utility bills TBC
Salary: £25K depending on experience – this may be reduced if the accommodation is taken as part of the package
Responsible Consultant: Lesley Jones –
