Live In House Steward Job Derbyshire - estate accommodation offered - £35,000 gpa + additional benefits

A returning client of Greycoat Lumleys is looking to recruit a highly experienced House Steward for a live in role on a large formal estate in rural Derbyshire.

They have a rare opportunity for a House Steward to join the friendly private household team based within the private household.

This is an extremely varied role and duties will include all aspects of a house steward role as well as other domestic tasks, which will include supporting the housekeeping team when required.   You will ensure the highest standards and a comfortable home environment are maintained, and a seamless, positive and professional service is provided at all times for the principals, their family and guests. 

With your exemplary customer service skills and a genuine passion for creating an exceptional experience, you will have proven relevant experience as a Steward/Butler in a private household or extensive front of house service in hospitality meeting and looking after guests. 

This is a very busy household, doing a great deal of entertaining on both a formal and informal basis and therefore there is a need to be adaptable, reacting as appropriate to the situation in a calm and efficient manner.  

The need for complete confidentiality, high integrity, attention to detail and complete trust cannot be overstated as an essential personal attribute for the House Steward. 

This is a full-time, permanent, year-round position working 5-days per week, including split shifts, weekend and evening work. The role will have extremely busy periods when the family are entertaining, followed by quieter periods when the family are away; therefore, workload and working time will vary.

There will also be a requirement to work at other locations which are part of the wider estate. 

Competitive salary package is £35,000 GPA plus additional benefits. Accommodation will be available on the Estate (exact details dependant on the requirements of the candidate, rent free other bills paid by the employee)


Excellent references, full UK Driving Licence and Enhanced DBS required
