House Manager/Butler- Fitzrovia

We are looking for an experienced House Manager/Butler, preferably with multi-property management experience.
Although this is a London based position, you will be required to travel more in the future, so this role will suit an individual who is happy with extensive travel in the long term.

Ideal candidates will have experience either within Super Yacht, 5 star hotel industries along with previous experience within Private Household in the position of House Manager or Butler.
The position is live-out when London based, but accommodation is arranged for you during periods of travel.

The Principal is extremely sporty, so you must be fit, healthy and energetic to be suitable for this role. It would go in your favour if you were sporty yourself and played Tennis or Golf (this is not a necessity, but would be a bonus).

A knowledge of French would also be of benefit, particularly during periods of travel (but again, this is not essential).

Salary
Up to £60,000.00-£80,000.00 per annum
Location
London based/Worldwide travel
Position
Permanent

The Principal travels on a constant basis. In their absence (on the occasions you are not required to travel with them), you are required to run the main residence in Fitzrovia and oversee additional London properties as and when required. Existing staff include a team of housekeepers, drivers, gardeners, PA, pilots and plenty of external contractors (florists, window cleaners, handyman etc.)

It would be helpful for candidates to be ‘tech savvy’ as the property has a multi-media system that requires a level of knowledge to run smoothly (TV’s, Entertainment system, Lights, Heating/AC etc.)

The client is looking for a ‘Modern Butler’, with an easy-going, yet highly professional manner. Candidates looking for a role in a formal setup, may not be well suited to this position.

Some valet and suitcase packing/unpacking and wardrobe management duties will be required for this position and you must have great communications skills; from planning rotas, managing the team, ensuring that attention to detail is a focus for all members of staff. You will be the main point of contact for the Client, PA, Pilots, Personal trainers, Housekeeping staff and external contractors. We are looking for an immaculately presented multi-tasker, who can remain at ease when under pressure.

PA or Driving duties are not required for this role, we are purely looking for a strong House Manager/Butler who is happy to travel and confident with multi-property management.
