We are seeking a top-level candidate to manage an existing estate in France.

Initially the role will involve oversight of the completion of an existing refurbishment of significant buildings on the Estate.  This will involve meeting with vendors and negotiating contracts and technical maintenance to ensure good value for the employer.

Once complete, the role will involve setting the service standards for both the ongoing property management and the household staff in preparation of the owners’ residence in the Summer.  There is a longer-term plan to upgrade the overall estate through continual refurbishment projects.

  • Ensure that the day-to-day operations are well organised, efficiently run and impeccably maintained
  • Approve staff expenses in accordance to established budgets (payroll, petty cash, etc)
  • Maintenance of all technical and mechanical systems such as A/C, security, water & wastewater treatment, vehicles & equipment
  • Schedule and conduct detailed inspections throughout projects & after each trade has completed its project tasks

Candidates should have excellent experience with a keen attention to detail, able to switch focus at a moment’s notice, and be dedicated to their job and their employer.  Absolute confidentiality and discretion with private and business dealings of the family, French language would be an advantage, but not essential.

To start ASAP

Salary is negotiable depending on the level of experience.

Separate accommodation would be provided, and partners would be welcome.
