Bethesda, Maryland estate/high end home seeking an Executive Housekeeper/House Manager with hands on cleaning skills needed for great family!
Our clients are seeking an experienced professional Executive Housekeeper with House Manager background to support their high end 10-12k sf home, in Bethesda area. Ability to manage and train up another Housekeeper to 5 star level support, run the department, answer the door for guests and vendors, speak with vendors and manage their activity and repairs. Someone with fine home experience preferred to oversee and manage the dry cleaning schedule, help with couture wardrobe and laundry needs – steaming/pressing.
Exercise excellent judgement, work independently and proactively, have a systematic approach to handling the Household (putting cleaning manuals and practices in place), stay steps ahead to ensure the level of service is unsurpassed! New residence for family, so there will be organizing needs, overview of property (daily walks, checking light bulbs and changing them if necessary, notating necessary repairs and getting approval to call vendors).
No cooking required as there is a Chef on site, and another Housekeeper whom this role will manage. There are other assorted ad hoc staff, so management of other individuals should be a strong part of your work history.
Client works from home, providing “ghost service” while working is essential, and protecting the quiet space for the family is appreciated. This is a very nice family who are down to earth but like a formal process in place (uniforms may be needed); they treat everyone well and are generous people. They would like someone with a healthy, positive personality and absolute punctuality, a happy individual who leaves their drama and personal business at home. Understanding of UHNW households is necessary.
There are two children at home (both high school age) and being able to interact professionally and mindfully is required. The children are sweet and well-mannered; this position would not be responsible for any childcare, but being child-friendly would add to your success.
5 days/week Monday-Friday usual work hours with occasional overtime
2 weeks’ vacation
