Housekeeper - Gstaad, Switzerland with travel

An experienced mature housekeeper is required for a busy British family with three young children – 3/7/11yrs. The housekeeper must enjoy being around children and animals as the staff in this household do become very much ‘part of the family’. There will be some weekend work allowing the busy mother to spend time with her family therefore flexibility is essential.

The children are in school in Switzerland so term times are spent in Gstaad and school holidays are spent mainly in Provence, Ibiza and Los Angeles.

The mother is very involved and ‘hands on’ and assists with housekeeping duties, working as a team with the housekeeper - and she loves to do the laundry! On rare occasions there will be some evening babysitting required.

An independent apartment has been rented in Gstaad for the new housekeeper as the client feels the housekeeper would prefer to have accommodation away from the family home; in Provence there is already an independent apartment for the housekeeper at the family villa.

This employer is exceptional, the family are warm, informal and friendly and they are seeking a flexible, relaxed, mature lady, who if possible has experience either in luxury hotels or on yachts as she would like to find a lady who has the extra ‘eye for detail’ that most ex-yacht stewardesses have.

Applicants must be able to speak fluent English and have a European passport as there will be extensive travel throughout Europe and to the USA. Work permit for Switzerland will be organised. Salary DOE. Start ASAP.  Email your resume to
