What Makes a Good Housekeeper?
There are many skills that are needed for a good housekeeper and a good number of character and personality assets that could really help you in your position. We would expect a housekeeper to be a good team player, having to regularly deal with both members of the household and potentially other staff within the house in a friendly manner. Of course attention to detail, organisational skills and time management are all key to this role as employers would expect tasks to be carried out in a timely and orderly fashion and to a meticulous standard. Discretion is also quite a key attribute. Members of the household would expect a housekeeper to blend in and exercise discretion where necessary. In addition to this, product, fabric and surface knowledge is definitely a bonus when it comes to cleaning.
