Job description

We are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic, happy couple to help look after our home.

The property is in Oxfordshire and on the edge of the Cotswolds it is set in 7 acres with Swimming pool, Tennis court and vegetable garden. Although in a quite rural location the nearest town is just 2 miles away and Oxford and Swindon a short drive away.

Although we are an informal family, we are looking for a Couple that will keep the property to a high standard without too much direction. You will be responsible for planning your own work once you know what is needed, so you must be hard working and be proud of your work and look after the house and garden to a high standard.

Hours are between 20 and 35 each per week, this varies during the year and at holiday time. Although pay is good it is not the highest, so would suit someone wanting to work slightly less hours per week but have a good quality of life in our very nice setting.

Job requirements

Outside jobs include all gardening jobs, including mowing, strimming, weeding and attending to the vegetable garden so experience of this would be really helpful.  Also driving (this can sometimes be late at night), handyman jobs around the property, looking after the swimming pool area, chopping logs and washing cars.

Inside jobs are all household duties, such as ironing, cleaning, making beds and helping with a property we have which we use for Airbnb. We would also need you both to help us when we entertain and to look after the house and our four dogs when we are not here. We live in a rural part of Oxfordshire so it is preferable for you both to drive.

A good understanding of English is essential as is the ability to work on your own.   Preferably you will be in England already so we can meet soon and discuss the job in detail. You have your own 1 bed cottage and we can provide use of a car if you need one.
