Our client is requiring a House Manager to work at a large residence in St Andrews, Scotland.
The family are very formal so are looking for experienced staff who have worked in similar environments before.
The house will be a full-time residence for the daughter who will be attending University there. The rest of the family (mother, father & brother) will be staying intermittently, as well as other family members too.
As this is a new residence, it is a great opportunity for an experienced House Manager who is looking for a challenge. You will be managing a large team of staff, creating structures and procedures, and coordinating with the home office to ensure the smooth running of the property.
Duties of the House Manager include:
Liaising with the home office
Creating a handbook for the household
Maintaining standards and dealing with any issues that may arise
Training of staff
House admin and financing
Taking care of security arrangements of the property.
The ideal candidate would have 3 years' similar experience in a private residence; experienced in silver service; preferably fluent in oral and written English; and also be a confident driver.
Accommodation can be provided in a lovely cottage just off the Estate.
A very competitive salary is on offer depending on experience. Uniform will also be provided by the client.
To start in August.
