• Full-Time
  • Bel Air

Location: Bel Air + Malibu

Schedule: Monday to Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm

Compensation: Excellent pay, DOE

A lovely couple in Bel Air/Malibu is seeking a full time housekeeper. The main residence is in Bel Air, but they spend a lot of time in Malibu as well. There is a head housekeeper who works in the evenings Monday to Thursday, and all day Sunday. She has been with the family for a very long time! There is also someone that helps on the weekends with the family dog, and fills in as needed. Longevity in previous positions is of the utmost importance to this family — only candidates with a proven track record of long term employment will be considered. Prior experience working on a yacht is a HUGE plus! Must be a great communicator (good with text and available to speak to other household staff when needed) — this is important so that everyone is in the loop and stays on the same page throughout the day.

The family would love to find someone who is excellent at regular cleaning and detailed cleaning, has great attention to detail and will daily check the house for things that need attention. This person must also be excellent with laundry and ironing, as that is a daily responsibility for all the items that are cleaned in-house. There is a dry cleaning service that comes to the house to pick up and drop off many items like sheets, Mr.’s shirts, etc.

Duties/Responsibilities/Expectations will include:

  • Making the bed every morning and keeping bathrooms nice, clean and tidy
  • As there is only a Mr. and Mrs in the house, there are certain ares of the house that are a main priority
  • The most important is the master bedroom and their bathrooms/closets, the powder room downstairs, the kitchen, the floors in the kitchen and laundry room, and the areas where everyone walks through need to be cleaned every day
  • Cleaning the refrigerator/freezer once a week and wiping down the cabinets and drawers in the kitchen
  • Throw out old and expired food
  • Clean the oven
  • There should be a system in place to keep the house on rotation so that everything else that is not a priority still gets cleaned regularly
  • When the couple is away traveling, that is a good time to do a deep clean of the house
  • Receiving the groceries from instacart and putting them away
  • Receiving packages delivered to the house, and alerting the Estate Manager. (Taking pictures and sending to the group text)
  • Keeping track of all the dry cleaning, what was picked up and what has been delivered to ensure nothing goes missing
  • Answering the phone for the front gates when someone is there needing to come inside
  • Available to help when the couple hosts a gathering, which is not too often, ideally staying later to help clean during the party
  • Collect the mail from the mailbox
  • Help in the kitchen when needed. This is occasional. Help preparing easy things like tuna salad or chopping, or additional clean up after they have used the kitchen.
  • Must love dogs! The couple has a husky. She is very sweet and they will need someone to look out for her during the day. Make sure she is inside and safe if someone is at the gate. Also feeding her in the afternoon.

The ideal candidate is friendly, energetic, hard working, loyal, dedicated, trustworthy, has a great track record of attendance at work, and always shows up on time. Must have experience working in a high end estate, understating the importance of privacy, discretion, and being respectful of personal space. For example, when the couple is getting ready upstairs, the focus is downstairs. The same goes for if the couple is in the kitchen, the focus will be to go upstairs and handle the master bedroom & baths, etc. This family, although very kind, really appreciates their space and privacy. The job will mainly be based in their Bel Air home. There is also a home in the Malibu Colony and you will travel there as well. Typically they got to Malibu on weekends but sometimes they go during the week. Wonderful opportunity to join a lovely household with a great team!
