Executive Housekeeper / Head Housekeeper Description

An Executive Housekeeper (or Head Housekeeper) is responsible for managing other Housekeepers and subordinate domestic staff members. In general, the staff of a large residence is divided into departments, and the Executive Housekeeper oversees all the female domestic workers except for the kitchen staff, who report to the Chef, and the between staff, who may report to the Butler.

As the Executive Housekeeper is ultimately responsible for the work of the rest of the Housekeepers on staff, the Head Housekeeper manages the following activities: interior and exterior cleaning, laundering of clothes and linens, ironing, dusting, silver polishing, vacuuming, pet care, and supplies management. Head Housekeepers may be live-in or live-out, depending on the employer’s needs. Moreover, Executive Housekeepers are generally hands-on in their daily work, guiding other Housekeepers to simply get done what needs to be done.

Salary for an Executive Domestic Housekeeper depends on the location, the particular job requirements, and the level of experience of the Head Housekeeper Applicant. Benefits, perks, and other forms of compensation provided also affect salary requirements.
