We are seeking an exceptional full-time Housekeeper with a brilliant eye for detail to join a staffed UHNW household in Alt-Bogenhausen, Munich. Working alongside two other full-time housekeepers and a cleaner, you will be a strong team player with good communication skills, and will report to the house manager.

The family’s primary residence, this large home has recently been refurbished to the highest specification, so it’s imperative that you have excellent knowledge of cleaning products and know how to care for fine furnishings, materials and fabrics. Responsible for general housekeeping, laundry and ironing, you should also be able to prepare breakfast, light meals and occasional dinners for the family of four and will be responsible for laying and clearing the table.

Other responsibilities will include grocery shopping, errand running and liaising with external service providers where needed to contribute to the smooth running of the property - having a full EU driving license is essential for this role. The ideal candidate will be attentive, well-presented and have a strong work ethic and positive attitude whilst still remaining discreet and boundaried, offering an unobtrusive service. Demonstrated longevity in previous roles are highly desired for this role.

Working 40 hours per week, the role will generally be Monday to Friday, but you will be required to work 1-2 weekends per month, with days in lieu the next week. Should the candidate need to relocate for this opportunity, the family is willing to assist in finding suitable accommodation for the housekeeper near their home, and an extra €1000 a month will go towards accommodation - the rest will need to be covered by the candidate.
