The job of a housekeeper requires organisation and discipline with the ability to turn their hand at a variety of different tasks across each day. They’ll have knowledge of a range of different cleaning techniques and have the experience to know what it takes to make an excellent housekeeper.
Attention to detail is vital and during any given day of a housekeeper they could be taking on a variety of tasks such as washing, wiping, dusting, polishing, vacuuming, laundry, tidying and changing bed linen to name a few. No two days are the same and they need to be prepared for last minute requests and high expectations.
Initiative is a vital quality as well as good communication skills and excellent organisational skills.
A live in housekeeper role provides accommodation with the job, so you will live on the premises within your own self-contained quarters. Live in housekeeper jobs can be convenient for both you and your employer – with no commute and flexible hours. You could be requested to work additional hours which can be claimed back in lieu or as overtime. Flexibility is a highly valuable asset in this industry.
