The venue aims to do 100 wedding each year. The workload is seasonal with the busiest period being July-September but weddings and events go on throughout the year. January to March is the quietest time of year.

The role: The house-keeping team leader will be responsible for:

  • Ensuring the quick and efficient cleaning and turn-around of the venue and house.
  • Maintaining high levels of cleanliness throughout venue and house
  • Recruiting and managing a small team of reliable cleaners
  • Co-ordinating the house-keeping rota of other members of the housekeeping team

The right candidate be will a reliable self-starter, happy to work alone when necessary and used to working under pressure and at anti-social times of the day. He/she will take pride in ensuring the house and venue are in tip top condition every day so that each couple feels ‘special’ on arrival.

In return, Houchins offers the opportunity to work with a small, dynamic team of hospitality professionals who are dedicated to giving couples the best day of their lives. Houchins has ambitious plans to expand its offer in the Essex wedding market.
