This is a lovely role for an experienced Rota Domestic Couple in a British household.


The family are a busy, fun-loving family with two energetic, and charming boys, and a small, friendly dog.


Both parents are successful in their relative businesses and require a couple who consist of Housekeeper/Nanny & Handyman to be responsible for the smooth running of the household to a high standard. There is another Nanny to assist at times when both parents are working, and a good cleaner that comes once a week.


The couple are ideally seeking a trustworthy, non-smoking, dog friendly individual who is a confident driver and is preferably fluent in English. Must understand working within a dynamic household and be conscious of boundaries and the need for discretion.


As this is a hands-on role, the family need someone who has great energy, enthusiasm, is calm and organised with a good eye for detail, as well as having a flexible and positive attitude towards life.


Duties will include, but are not limited to:

  • Preparing and serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner of nutritious and healthy family meals – knowledge of non-dairy diets is a bonus
  • Clearing away, tidying, and cleaning the kitchen
  • Dealing with grocery shopping and petty cash
  • Placing orders for household supplies including food, household, and bathroom items
  • Maintaining stock control to minimise waste but also ensuring refrigerator is clean and out-of-date items discarded
  • Tidying and cleaning throughout including dusting, vacuuming, mopping, changing bed linen etc
  • Collecting, washing, and ironing laundry
  • Hand-washing delicate items
  • Arranging for dry-cleaning, indoor plant watering, door answering and general errands
  • Morning school/nursery runs
  • Feeding and exercising the dog (not too much of either!)
  • Babysitting overnight
  • Handyman duties, DIY
  • Estate management duties
  • Overseeing contractors
  • Car care


The accommodation provided consists of a fully furnished double bedroom (with double-bed, fridge and TV), own toilet and a bathroom shared with the children. The house is set in beautiful grounds, and the family encourage use of the grounds and rest of the manor (including gym). A shared car is also provided.


The family encourage their household staff to take holidays when they do (which are relatively frequent and not always during school holidays), so there is a decent amount of down-time in between the busy periods.
