A house manager is a domestic worker in a large household or estate
A house manager is a highly specialised role, and at Butler for You we are always looking for professional people to fill appointments in the UK and overseas. We would be delighted to hear from you if you’re a house manager with experience in five-star hotels or private estates, and are searching for a full-time placement that makes the best use of your considerable abilities.
House manager positions for experienced private service professionals
You will find house managers in private estates of all sizes, where they offer an exceedingly high level of service. Not to be confused with an estate manager whose various duties may take him to several properties, a house manager is normally in charge of one large residence or estate. Many managers have a hotel trade background that has allowed them to learn a vast selection of skills that prove invaluable in the private sector.
Butler for You continually place domestic staff in sought after positions with clients in London, different parts of the UK, the USA, Europe and the Middle East. Our clients demand a very high level of service and we take great pride in our commitment to placing the right candidates with the right clients, assuring them of a mutually satisfying working relationship.
Our house manager positions are highly desirable, and you will be able to manage a large home or estate with a number of staff at your disposal. You will have wide-ranging abilities. You will excel in the day-to-day management of a VIP home and its staff, and be able to delegate chores, manage household accounts and organise events as required by the client. You should be adept at turning your hand to a broad range of tasks, and may have knowledge of fine wines, calligraphy and flower arranging. Many house managers enrol in butler school courses, and extra skills are an asset to the prestigious placements you will find at Butler for You.
You should have a hands on work attitude and pay great attention to detail. You must take pride in your appearance and be smart and well presented. Most of our house manager positions are live in, and you will have very good accommodation as befits your status. All house managers in positions through Butler for You are very well compensated for their experience and level of skill and ability. Extra benefits may include a clothing allowance, private health insurance or a car.
If you are an experienced and reliable house manager with no background issues, and wish to be considered for the most rewarding positions in the UK or further afield, please contact Butler for You by email. You should include an up to date résumé or CV, a clear, professional quality photograph, and verifiable references along with contact information and email addresses of your former employers.
