House Manager Butler Job Holland Park
Our client is looking for Butler/Housekeeper who can switch between these 2 roles depending on when the principle is in residence or not.
When client is not in residence you will do the housekeeping, scheduling and overseeing maintenance, shopping/shipping and other administrative type duties, reporting staff hours, etc.
When the family is in residence, you will need to manage all food and beverage service (normally 3 adults and 4 children, but occasionally with guests) and also oversee operations generally. At that time, there would normally have additional staff - 2 full time housekeepers, a weekend housekeeper, a chef and a kitchen helper, and there would be 2 nannies travelling with the family too. The hours at that time increase quite drastically of course, but that is redressed when the family leaves with extra days off.
Very occasionally the male principal will travel alone to London, sometimes for 2 or 3 days and sometimes for a slightly longer period. Otherwise it is perhaps 6 or 7 weeks in the summer and other typical school holiday periods.
You must have attention to detail and the house is to be kept immaculate at all times.
