We are searching for a Head Butler, looking for an exciting challenge, to lead a team comprising Junior Butlers, Chefs, Nannies, a Tutor and various other diverse members of travelling staff who jointly serve the Principal and the Principal’s immediate family.
You will lead the diverse and dedicated team who serve and support the Principal and Family in their day-to-day requirements and manage their personal effects.
This position will require a highly skilled and knowledgeable Butler, who is both able to offer a flawless service to the family and manage the team of up to 11 travelling domestic staff. Someone who is tech savvy, well-travelled, totally flexible with your time, and dedication to the family and team. Confident to drive, work with children and animals, and be very proactive in all aspects of service to the Principals. Fluent in English with Russian or French would be an advantage.
The Principal and Family typically spend time in various homes, mainly in Western Europe, but also travel worldwide seasonally via an extended period on a large, fully crewed Motor Yacht. To be successful in this role, you will be excited by the prospect of travel and will usually work in rotation with the other Butlers.
Part of your duties and responsibilities is to manage the contractors and suppliers and the staff on duty spreadsheet. These are currently being managed by staff in Moscow, and will be handed over to you at some point once you have a good understanding of the private office and your role requirements.
There is no House Manager in the NY property so essentially you will have to run this on top of your Head Butler role when you are in NY.
A competitive salary is offered, rising after completion of a probationary period.
