We are seeking a highly efficient and detail-oriented House Manager for a prestigious royal family based in London. This is a household that the family uses for approximately four months of the year, but they require a full-time House Manager to maintain the household at the highest level of excellence throughout the year. The Principal has high standards and expectations, so we are looking for a candidate who is dedicated, hardworking, and proactive in ensuring the smooth running of the household. As the House Manager, your duties will include overseeing all aspects of the household, including housekeeping, maintenance, and security. You will be responsible for managing staff, maintaining inventory and supplies, managing budgets, and coordinating with outside contractors as needed. The Principal expects the house to be kept to the highest standards of cleanliness, organisation, and presentation at all times. We are seeking a candidate who has extensive experience in managing high-end households and is accustomed to working in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment. The ideal candidate should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be able to lead and motivate staff effectively, and be able to multitask and prioritise competing demands. You should have an eye for detail and be able to work to tight deadlines while maintaining the highest standards. Candidates must be based in the UK and have the right to live and work in the country. We are seeking someone who is committed to a long-term role and is able to build a strong and positive relationship with the family.
