House Manager Job
An UHNW family in Kensington are looking for a Live out House Manager to oversee the day-to-day running of their beautiful home.
There will also be a Live in Housekeeper and a part time Housekeeper employed who you will supervise, but you must be happy with helping with some hands-on housekeeping during some busy times.
The family are based abroad but visit London throughout the year, staying typically 3-6 weeks at any one time, usually in the school holidays (typically June - August & Christmas). The Principal also occasionally visits for a few days here and there for business trips. This year however, the family are visiting on average 1 week per month.
Mum and dad have 5 children aged between 3-15 years old and also sometimes bring a dog with them too so you must be child and pet friendly.
This is a new team of staff as their home has been newly refurbished. It is extremely high end and high tech so someone tech savvy would be a huge bonus. When the family visit London they also bring with them extra staff, typically 2-4 Maids/ Nannies and a Chef.
Your duties will include:
- Overseeing the day-to-day running of the household
- Service at dinner parties- these are usually just with extended family members
- Wardrobe management
- Running errands/handling deliveries
The ideal candidate will be friendly, have a warm disposition and be discreet. You must have high standards of housekeeping and be looking for longevity. It is also ideal if you have had VIP household experience and/or worked in Hotels previously.
You must be vaccinated and hold an UK EU Passport. There will be 1 month of travel a year – to Cannes and to Doha
