COUPLE REQUIRED FOR PERTHSHIRE ESTATE – ESTATE WORKER, GARDENER & HOUSEKEEPER

We are looking for an energetic and dedicated couple with long term prospects to help run this small family-managed estate in Highland Perthshire. 

Estate work (3 days a week) involves assisting with general outdoor maintenance such as mowing, strimming, chainsaw work, log splitting and fencing.  Gardening work (2 days a week) will be directed by the owner who is a keen gardener.  Experience preferred but not essential.  Some keepering work also available if this were of interest to the applicant. 

The housekeeper will be responsible for cleaning the main house three mornings a week and to assist with the changeovers for two holiday houses.  A high standard of cleaning is required, as is a keen eye for detail and presentation.  Must be prepared to work weekends according to bookings.  A minimum of 9 hours per week guaranteed, with the potential for 20 or more hours per week during peak holiday seasons.

A good level of fitness is needed for both these roles and a full, clean driving licence is essential for the estate worker role.   Must also be dog friendly as some dog sitting will be required.  Grazing and stabling for up to two horses may be available.

Competitive rate of pay plus a well maintained 2 traditional two bedroomed cottage with extensive outbuildings at nominal rent, council tax paid. 

Please email lucy@straloch.com for a detailed job description and application process or call 07941 152049.  Closing date for applications:  Friday 11th January 2019
