Hire a Butler / Household Manager

Let Us Find The Right Butler / House Manager for you 

The role of the House Manager and Butler has changed dramatically over recent years. The traditional ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ idea of a Butler does still exist in more formal and traditional households, but we are far more likely these days to be tasked with finding a modern Household Manager. The Household Manager is often a multi-talented, hands-on individual, who is prepared to multi-task in all manner of areas:

  • Supervision of other staff
  • General management of an individual home or whole property portfolio
  • Events organisation
  • Personal Assistant duties and diary management
  • Chauffeur duties

As well as more traditional duties, such as:

  • Formal table service and service of drinks
  • Valeting
  • Care of the wine cellar
  • Cleaning of silver and care of fine antiques and art
  • Organisation of shoots and care of guns

House Managers and Butlers generally need to be computer literate and may be required to travel with their employers and run or work in multiple homes, or manage a complex portfolio of properties. They are asked increasingly to speak a second language. Call one of our team to discuss your requirements.
