We have a wonderful opportunity for a Live-In Domestic couple to serve a family in Stowe, Buckinghamshire at a part time weekend residence that is occupied for weekend stays once a month and two weeks during the school breaks. There are three children under the age of 8. The family are looking for an experienced couple who are pet friendly and who can show flexibility in their duties.  At least one member of the domestic couple will need a full driver’s licence.  
This is primarily an indoor role and both will need to be experienced with general housekeeping duties and have a keen eye for detail.  Along with the domestic duties such as vacuuming, cleaning, dusting, caring for antiques and keeping the whole residence highly presentable at all times, you will need to be confident operating mechanized cleaning equipment.  You will also need to be excellent at laundry, ironing, pressing clothes and linen.
One of the couple must be able to cook to a good standard and can plan and cook meals for the family.  The household like to entertain but will hire external caterers on these occasions.  The couple will be expected to welcome guests and serve them accordingly; silver and butler service is not essential but will certainly be welcomed by the household.   The couple will also be required to do the household shopping, run errands and ensure the residence is fully provisioned.  Good handyman skills will also be required for general household maintenance
The family pet dogs are with the family at their main home in London but do sometimes travel with the family so there could be the occasional request to look after the pets when the family are in residence.
A car is provided for work purposes.

Working days – 5 days a week.   Some flexibility is asked for when the family are in residence and any days off worked will be given back in lieu.
Accommodation – Separate fully furnished single cottage within the grounds with utility bills paid. Sorry no pets or dependants.  
Hours – 40 hours a week, with flexibility when the house is occupied by the family.
Salary - £70K gross per annum
Holiday – 20 days plus bank holidays
