Housekeeper Description

A Housekeeper is an individual responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of the interior of a residence. Typical domestic duties of the Housekeeper include cleaning, doing the laundry, ironing, dusting, silver polishing, vacuuming, pet care, and running errands. Housekeeper duties may also include preparation of meals and caring for children. Housekeepers may be part-time or full-time and live-in or out, depending on the Employer’s needs.

In larger residences, a Housekeeper (or Executive Housekeeper) may also be responsible for managing other Housekeepers and subordinate domestic staff members. In general, the staff of a large residence is divided into departments, and the Housekeeper is in charge of all the female domestic workers with the possible exception of the kitchen staff, who report to the Chef, and the between staff, who may report to the butler.

Salary for a Private/Domestic Housekeeper depends on your location, the particular job requirements, and the level of experience of the Housekeeping Applicant. Benefits, perks, and other forms of compensation provided by the Employer also affect salary requirements.
