This position is offered as live-out based on 5 days a week split between two semi-formal residences (one in London and one in Surrey). It will be necessary to work weekends. Accommodation would be available should the principle wish to stay on the Estate over the weekend. This is a non-smoking household and therefore the applicant must be a non-smoker.
This is a multi-functional role. The ideal candidate would be completely flexible to the needs of the employers. The role would be to ensure that the day to day service at the residence meets the expectations of the Principals. Discretion and confidentiality are important to this family and their privacy is paramount.
You must be a good team player to fit into this household as it is fully staffed and a hands-on approach is essential. Integrity, reliability, a flexible nature and attention to detail are also essential. You must have experience in silver service and valet duties along with other typical Butler duties. That being said you will need to be flexible with your approach and be prepared to perform tasks the way the Principals would like to see them completed. A knowledge of floristry and wines would also be useful. Willingness to travel is required for up to 2-3 weeks at a time to various locations outside of the UK. A British or European passport is therefore essential as travel is often at short-notice.
You must be animal friendly as there are various animals on the estate.
If you are seeking a long-term commitment, have a minimum of 5-10 years experience in a similar role with a professional Butler qualification then apply. Applicant must supply verifiable references.
An immediate start can be offered for the right candidate. Salary is commensurate with experience.
