A Housekeeper is someone who takes care of the running of your household, and this goes way beyond just cleaning.
At Hopscotch Nanny Agency, we are looking for dedicated Housekeepers, and therefore generally only take on candidates who have demonstrated longevity in previous roles, this being a minimum of 1 year in one employment.
Generally we look for candidates with a minimum of 2 years’ experience in large, demanding households, who can meet the demands of employers who can be very particular about their households. We select only candidates who understand the importance of perfectionism, initiative and ability to take and remember instructions.
The difference between a Housekeeper and a Cleaner is that a Housekeeper works generally only for a single employer, taking care of all the different tasks needed for running the household, from general cleaning, shopping and polishing the silver to helping out at dinner parties.
