P/T Guardian ~ Private Estate ~ Vaucluse POSITION NOW FILLED

This Scandinavian client is seeking a part time, live-in gardien for her large rural estate in the Vaucluse. The property is fully staffed, interior and exterior by local workers however since the departure of her previous gardien she misses the presence of a live-in gardien on the property. She feels this position could suit someone similar to her last gardien, a retired person who has a background in the military, security service or property care. The working hours will be only 10 hrs per week for which she will pay a regular monthly salary of €600 net for 40 hours per month - however this is a huge property and the client has said that for anyone who wants to work more hours in the garden with the gardeners or forestry management or general maintenance etc she is happy to pay for any extra work by the hour. The gardien can work as much or as little as they choose throughout each month as long as they provide the basic 10 hours per week.

Accommodation comprises a beautiful 2 bedroom house on the property and when owners and guests are not in residence the gardien has access to the swimming pool and tennis courts located close to the gardien house.
