A housekeeper, sometimes known as a housekeeping manager, is responsible for organising the staff in a home or a hotel to make sure that all the rooms are kept clean, tidy and welcoming. They supervise staff in the department and encourage effective teamwork.
To become a good housekeeper, training to be a housekeeper is essential.
Our housekeeper training school will offer you all the right training for housekeepers, butlers and for house management staff.
A big part of the role is to draw up shift rotas and allocate daily cleaning duties for the room attendants. Housekeepers inspect the rooms and make sure that standards have been met.

Housekeepers tend to stay in their job for some time and so there are fewer vacancies than in other areas of the industry. There are more opportunities at a junior level but competition can be fierce.
There may be opportunities to move into a related job, such as front-of-house manager or training manager. There are also professional qualifications that can help with progression such as our housekeeping and maid training programmes.
Some housekeepers become self-employed and run their own small hotels for example
