Housekeeper/Head housekeeper

Location: London (LI), Bucks, Bucks, Oxfordshire (LO)

Reference: ER-26900

Summary

  • “A” is an upbeat, positive, (and as she described) a robust and adaptable housekeeping candidate. Expertly experienced in practices of traditional formal and modern informal households, from the care of more delicate artifacts and delicate fabrics, to diligently organising other household staff, taking care of administration duties and greeting and serving guests.
  • Receptive at identifying needs of the household, having worked for families for four years in both a professional and self-employed way, she ran her own business attending to clients homes providing great services in cooking as well as cleaning. She is a keen and confident cook of vegan and vegetarian cuisine and has a great eye for hospitality, making guests feel warmed and welcome and liaising with contractors to organising tasks and reporting on issues before they become serious.
  • Eden loved “A’s” positive attitude during interview and her flexibility to work long hours inclusive of weekend schedules as part of her contracted hours.

 

Employers say:

  • (“A’s) attention to detail is second to none. She organised our homes from top to bottom, seemingly effortlessly, with absolute professionalism. We found both “A” and her team to be trustworthy, discreet, reliable and honest and nothing was ever too much trouble. “A” is kind and compassionate, we were always touched at how lovely she was with our families (and dogs) in the home environment. She is extremely resourceful and organised. She has an ability to manage multiple tasks simultaneously and turn her hand to whatever is needed at a moment’s notice (preparing for unexpected guests, taking the dog to the vet, cooking a dinner for a small family or dinner party at a moment’s notice). We very much miss “A”, she is uniquely committed and extremely professional and we fear she is irreplaceable. – W Family
