BUTLER & HOUSEMAN TO SUPPORT HIGH-PROFILE UHNWI

We have an amazing opportunity for an experienced Butler and Houseman to support a high profile, ultra-high net worth individual in their London residence, and additional residence outside of London. The principal is a well-known prominent figure, who has a variety of business interests, as well as a portfolio of properties internationally – so there may be an occasional need for travel.

This is a very hands-on role that requires an all-rounder who is flexible in terms of duties - you will be responsible for providing impeccable standards of service, leading a small team from the front, and assisting the wider team with all of their duties across the household. The current team consists of approximately 20 staff, many of whom have been with the principal for a number of years.

Predominately London-based, this is a live-out position. Working days within this household are unpredictable when the principal is in residence (approximately 6-8 months per year), so flexibility with hours and days is essential. Occasional international travel may be required, and out-of-hours on-call will be expected. A driver with own vehicle is essential for this role as the property is not easily accessible by public transport.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES
• Range of butler duties, including: formal and informal service, table settings, silverware, fireplaces, flower arrangement
• Guest handling
• Light cooking (lunches, snacks etc.)
• Valet duties (wardrobe, packing and unpacking)
• Assisting the wider team
• Occasional international trips if required
• Eye for standards at the house
• Management of Junior Butler in terms of tasking and maintaining standards

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA
• Prior Butler / Houseman experience in a private residence
• Demonstrable background in setting and maintaining impeccable standards
• Excellent standard of verbal and written English
• Hands-on approach, willing to be personally involved in all household operations
• Polished and well-presented and an ambassador for the principal
• Excellent attention to detail
• Positive and can-do attitude
• Flexible in approach, and adaptable to new ways of working
• Team player who enjoys working with different types of people
• Copes well with last-minute requests and changes
• Trustworthy, works discreetly, and handles confidential information appropriately
• A driver with own vehicle
• Excellent checkable reference

If this role sounds of interest, and you meet the essential criteria, please apply within or get in touch to find out more.
