A superb and exciting opportunity for an experienced and traditional House Manager/Butler to oversee and manage a substantial newly built Shooting Estate in Dorset.   The property is currently under constructions and is due to be completed in early 2022.   

We are looking for a candidate who will ideally be available to start in early 2022 as you will be involved in the challenging task of all final preparations to the property; working alongside architects, interior designers, building contractors and the Estate Manager to ensure the house is set up, provisioned, working systems established, etc., and ready to receive clients and guests.   

The position will require a professional and experienced candidate with previous country house and hotel experience.  The property is a Shooting Estate and as such it will be advantageous if you have previously worked in a similar environment.   

We are looking for a strong, personable candidate who can rise to the challenge and demands of this new position and who can work effectively in a managerial role as well as a hands-on butler role.  

We seek a candidate who has exceptional communication and organisational skills who can effectively motivate and manage a team of staff and be involved in the recruitment and training of additional household staff; both permanent and temporary as required.  

Strong administrative skills will be required as you will be managing staff schedules, inventory, purchasing, budgets, etc.   Top butler skills imperative; excellent front of house experience along with being comfortable in both formal and informal settings.

It is anticipated that the property will not be used in a permanent capacity.  Our client and family will visit periodically throughout the year and will be particularly busy with house guests during the shoot season. 

May be required on occasion to work in other properties.  Driver essential.  2-Bedroom cottage provided within the grounds.   Partner’s welcome, couples considered.  Top negotiable salary for the right candidate.   (HU3692)
