Job description

We are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic, happy couple to help look after our home, gardens and some farm duties.

The property is in Hampshire and on the edge of the Southdowns National Park. Although in a quite rural location the nearest town is just 6 miles 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 gardens so experience of this would be really helpful.  Handyman jobs around the property are maintaining the gardens, general house maintenance, DIY, log collecting and keeping the outside of the house tidy.

Inside jobs are all household duties, such as ironing, cleaning, making beds and helping with a few properties we have which we use for Airbnb. We would also need you both to help us when we are away as we have lots of animals (goats,sheep, donkeys etc)  and our two dogs when we are not here. We live in a rural part of Hampshire so it is preferable for you both to drive, but bus routes are available.

A very good understanding of English is essential as is the ability to work on your own.   You will have your own 1 bed cottage which is attached to the main house. Non smokers please. CRB checked. Clean drivers licence and references will be sought. There is a livey space available should you have your own horse.
