WHAT TO EXPECT IN COUPLE PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD JOBS
A Private Household environment can often work very well for an established couple who have experience of working together. Larger homes require 2 members of staff rather than 1 and often a couple can make a good domestic team. The roles can vary for couples, but the most regularly seen are:
Housekeeper and Gardener/Maintenance Couple
Chef and Housekeeper Couple
Chef and Nanny Couple
These roles require you to have proven success of working together in previous positions, generally be free of young dependents or pets, have previous private household experience and glowing references. If the family have children, you will also require a DBS.
In order to apply for some of these roles, you may need to have a valid UK working visa. For more information and to check if you qualify, take a look at our UK Working Visa Guide here.
