If you're looking for work as a housekeeping supervisor, we can help

The housekeeping industry is one that has seen quite a sharp incline in popularity in the last few years, possibly due to the fact that many families can no longer afford to have one of the adults staying at home to do housework given the current financial state of the economy. For this reason, there is plenty of demand for those with experience working as a housekeeping supervisor. We take a look at how you can get involved.

Unlike a position as a housekeeper, those of you who want to work as a housekeeping supervisor are going to need to have at least five years of previous housekeeping experience. While having experience working in a management position would certainly be an asset, it is not something that is essential assuming you already have plenty of on the job experience and know exactly what is required of a housekeeper.

As a housekeeping supervisor, it will be your job to ensure that all the housekeepers working under you, either in the one residence or building, or in a local area, are doing their job correctly.

It will be up to you to hired and fire employees as well as assess the number of staff that are required in order to keep up with demand at all times. You will need to create timetables and ration any overtime that may be required.

You will also be responsible for any additional training that may be required for your staff in order to keep them up to date with the industry. This can include keeping them informed on any changes to health and safety legislation as well as cleaning techniques and dealing with customers in a satisfactory way.

The entry level wage for a position as housekeeping supervisor usually starts at around £22,000 per year, depending on where you work. This can increase to as much as £32,000 with experience if you are working for a particularly large property or property management company.

In order to find jobs working as a housekeeping supervisor, there are a number of approaches you could take. Firstly, you can keep any eye on the major job websites such as reed.co.uk, totaljobs.com and jobs.guardian.co.uk. Alternatively, you could call in to any property management companies in your area to see if they have vacancies for housekeeping supervisors. This approach can often work out a lot better than sitting around waiting on vacancies to appear online, so we recommend you mix them up for maximum effect.
