A privately owned 60m motor yacht requires an experienced Head of Service, who will be responsible for leading and managing a service team of 4.
The ideal candidate should have at least 5+ years’ experience in a similar role land or yacht based with excellent high-end service, table setting, forward thinking and creativeness.

The candidate will assist the travelling butlers when the owner is on board the yacht, and take the lead when charters take place (excellent way to learn the owners’ preferences). When the owners are on board this position will be solely service (no housekeeping will be required).
