We are looking for a live-in Domestic Couple to run the day-to-day operation of an estate in Shropshire.

The estate is primarily used as a shooting estate during the season (September to February), and as a residential home for specific weeks of occupancy around Easter and the Summer.  It has some use during the weekends in between these times, and occupancy is for around 60 to 80 days a year.

We are looking for a specific type of Couple who are self-starters, problem-solvers and resourceful.

Some key experiences that we would like to see are below:

  • Safari and lodge management experience. We want people that can overcome issues and solve problems, and work with the team at hand;
  • House management experience.  Able to run an indoor and outdoor team to achieve standards set on arrival, but to also look for improvements;
  • Project management.  Someone able to grasp a concept and assist in the execution and operation of a project timeline, while not necessarily being the project planner;
  • Front of House.  There is a Butler who has these responsibilities but he is largely deployed in the role during residence.  We need someone who can step into this for commercial bookings;
  • Inventory creation and maintenance.  There are several inventories, Linens, Silver, Wine, Art etc.  These need constant curation;
  • Short-term flexibility of accommodation.  There is a private residence available, but for the next six months, this will also be overflow staff accommodation;
  • Budget management.  Able to keep operations within set parameters that are set for each department;
  • HR.  There is a small team on site and basic HR experience is needed. Major decisions are taken at a senior level, the application of the correct Staff resources to task needs management;

You must both drive – a car will be provided and in due course (approx 6 months) you will have your own accommodation provided but initially you may have to be flexible as to other staff sharing.
