Job description

Capable couple required for farmhouse and estate in West Norfolk. This is a housekeeping/maintenance split role where one person will take charge of everything inside the house and the other person will do all outside tasks. The clients are a shooting family and so assistance with up to 8 shoot days per season will be required. Good cooking skills would be desirable for the shoot lunches. 

The housekeeping element of the role encompasses all that is usually expected including all cleaning and laundry for an eight bedroom house. The family have two children aged 4 and 2 and some light childcare duties may be required from time to time although this is not a key requirement of the role. 

The maintenance role will include management of the garden including all the lawn mowing, tree maintenance, cleaning cars and windows, and assisting the part-time gamekeeper during the shooting season.  

This could be a live-in or live-out role, the accommodation comes in the form of a three bedroom bungalow on the estate, situated approximately three miles from the main house. 

There will be some weekend work required and flexibility should be allowed here with time off during the week given in lieu. 

The predominant task of this position is the housekeeping and so although our clients would accept a couple they would also be happy to outsource the other tasks and just consider a housekeeping candidate too. 

Couple salary: £45,000 - £50,000 (AGY)
