It’s feeling house-proud about the world’s most famous homes

It’s being encouraged to gain new skills. And it’s delivering extraordinary service in incredible surroundings. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

This is no standard housekeeping role. You’ll work, and live, in stunning historic settings, ensuring that they’re presented to their best for colleagues, guests and, of course, the Royal Family.

Aiming for the highest standards, you’ll clean and care for interiors and items from carpets and furniture to historic vases and irreplaceable paintings.

You’ll take care of guests and support special events too. And, in an environment where development and training is commonplace, you’ll be able to grow your skills far beyond your immediate role.

About the department

The Master of the Household’s Department handles everything involved in the official and private entertaining across all the Royal Residences.

Working in magnificent historic settings, we take on a huge variety of hospitality, catering and housekeeping challenges.

We’re proud to run some of the world’s most famous residences. And, working together seamlessly, we deliver the best standard time and time again.

Housekeeping or hospitality experience would be an asset, but is by no means essential. We’re more interested in your outstanding team working skills.

You clearly take care and pride in your work, and your keen attention to detail means you aim for the highest standards in all that you do.

Your excellent communication skills mean that you can adapt effectively to any occasion.

It's a busy environment, but with good time management skills, you're able to meet the demanding deadlines.

Your positive approach means you'll be eager to get involved in a range of duties supporting the wider team. Above all, you will be eager to learn and develop your skills.

This is your opportunity to use your enthusiasm and passion to deliver the exceptional.

You will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility - to increase contributions or draw down as salary), all meals provided, training and development, as well as a range of recreational facilities. In addition, as this is a live-in role, you will be provided with accommodation, for which your salary will be adjusted.
