EXCEPTIONAL HOUSE MANAGER REQUIRED FOR UHNW FAMILY

We have a fantastic opportunity for a brilliant House Manager to oversee the daily running and operation of 3 luxury properties in Europe. Working for an UHNW family, you must be a self-starter who is experienced and confident in your ability to set up and put systems into place, liaise at all levels, be very hands-on, and have excellent attention to detail. Reporting directly to the female Principal, you will ensure that all properties are running seamlessly.

Responsible for the recruitment and management of staff, overseeing maintenance requirements, accounting and budget control, as well as administration and preparing reports for all 3 properties, you will be exceptionally organised, highly trustworthy and reliable and have strong managerial skills. Managing a team of Housekeepers, Cleaners and Gardeners, you will ensure that the family receive outstanding service when in residence, and that all properties are maintained to the highest standard year-round. Based primarily in Munich, you will be required to travel to the family’s other properties in Europe, so a valid passport is essential for this role.

Based on a 5-day work week, hours are around 40 hours per week, but flexibility is key for this role and some weekend work will be required.

• Excellent knowledge of how to care for high-end and delicate surfaces and fabrics
• Exposure running mid-scale operations and teams
• Operationally focused and tech-savvy
• Proactive, hands-on, motivated, enthusiastic, personable, organised, strong eye for detail, and well presented
