LIVE OUT BUTLER / HOUSE MANAGER – LONDON

We are working with a wonderful UHNW family to source an energetic, experienced, and organised female Household Manager/Butler (due to cultural reasons) to manage their large Kensington property on a permanent basis. The property is brand new and will serve as the family’s secondary residence, where they will spend approximately 6 months of the year.

This is a varied role overseeing all operations of the household - you will work independently, alongside a housekeeper, and will turn your hand to a variety of tasks across the household, including cooking, managing household bills, personal shopping, organising events, assisting with travel booking, service at mealtimes and arranging all maintenance/contractors.

Responsible for implementing and maintaining high standards in the home, you will be required to ensure the principals’ day-to-day needs are met, which will include informal and formal front of house duties and fulfilling any ad hoc requests. You must be well organised, self-sufficient, well-presented, and hardworking.

A live-out role, you will work 6 days per week when the principals are in residence, with flexibility required, and reduced hours with a bigger focus on the upkeep of the property when they are not in residence.

• Front of house duties, food & beverage service, including formal service
• Running personal errands and shopping, as requested
• Shopping for and ordering household items and groceries
• Ensuring all aspects of the house are in order; arranging contractors to undertake household maintenance as necessary
• Managing work schedules of other household staff
• Liaising with the principals/PA/driver with regards to travel arrangements
• Supervising and working alongside the housekeeper where necessary to ensure the smooth running of the household
• Preparing meals for the family when they are in residence
• Effectively managing household accounts
• Developing household manuals and procedures

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior experience as a butler or House Manager or formal butler training
• Formal service experience
• A good cook, able to produce simple healthy meals
• Hardworking, loyal, and discreet
• Excellent interpersonal and managerial skills; a good level of spoken English
• Flexible and willing to undertake a varied role
• Well-presented and articulate
