A housekeeper will take on a variety of responsibilities in their role, helping a home to run smoothly and efficiently. They are an asset to any home and one of the most common domestic roles recruited for as people seek to balance keeping a home with working full time or managing a busy social life – some simply can’t stand doing chores!
A housekeeper in Kent’s average day or week will consist of completing a range of domestic chores such as vacuuming, dusting, laundry, ironing, making and changing beds, loading and unloading the dishwasher, doing the washing up, mopping and any other domestic requests from their employer. Sometimes this role might be combined with a cook or nanny role as well.
For a housekeeper to be successful and achieve a great reputation, they will be a highly organised person with excellent attention to detail who keeps on top of their duties and communicates effectively with their employer. Specialist skills can be of great advantage such as experience or knowledge in caring for silverware, antiques, collectables, vintage and couture clothing.
A live in housekeeper will provide the services of a housekeeper but reside on the property and be provided with private accommodation on the premises. This is beneficial for both parties as it can allow for flexible working hours, minimal commute and help to provide a professional working relationship.
