While a housekeeper may not have any formal training, they should have experience of working in a private home. Housekeepers often work alone, however there is usually a need for flexibility to work with other staff on some tasks which may require a team effort. Housekeepers will usually be supervised by the employer or sometimes a household manager.
This role provides the employer with gardening and housekeeping duties for a private household. The gardener will usually come from a horticultural background, with experience of formal or informal gardens and may hold horticultural qualifications.
