Description

We are looking for two friendly, energetic, dependable, and motivated people to look after our two houses and a rental flat in Sandbanks. We also own a self-contained flat where you would be able to live. A car is provided with the property.

Housekeeping duties include:
• Daily cleaning and preparing the house for guests
• Making beds, general tidying each day
• Laundry and ironing and ensuring smooth change-over between guests
• Help in preparing meals on occasion (experience as a cook is not necessary)
• Assisting at dinner parties (preparation and clearing up)
• Grocery shopping
• Occasional babysitting for young children

Gardening and maintenance duties include:
• Grass and hedge cutting
• Weeding, feeding and tidying gardens
• Daily watering over summer months
• Liaise with suppliers to arrange pool maintenance and cleaning
• BBQ cleaning
• General simple house and garden furniture repairs and maintenance
• Maintain external doors, windows and decking area
• Ensuring water sports equipment is fully functioning and readily available for family and guests as required eg: re-fuelling boat, jet skis
• Running errands and driving as necessary, occasional airport/rail pick-ups

The roles would suit two people who are self-sufficient, able to see when things need to be done and take pride in their work. The busiest times are over the summer months, especially in July and August when there are many visitors. At other times of the year it tends to be busiest at weekends and school holidays. This means that hours can vary from week to week, so you will be responsible for setting your own schedule in consultation with the family. Holidays are best taken out of the busiest times and can be arranged again through consultation.

We have two family dogs, so it would be ideal if you are dog-lovers and do not mind sitting for the dog, when we are away, as well as taking them for walks.

Key Requirements

• Previous experience in housekeeping skills/ maintenance
• Good spoken English
• Reliable and punctual
• A positive attitude
• Driving license is essential
• Excellent communication skills

Salary £25,000 each per annum plus self-contained flat and use of a car. You will be responsible for your own utilities and council tax payments.

Our last couple stayed with us for 13 years so we are ideally looking for a pair who are looking to stay for some time.
