We are searching for an experienced live-in House Manager to manage a beautiful private residence in Kent.  This is a large country estate, and the owner and family generally use the property on the weekends.  They are searching for someone who has good knowledge of a country estate and, as well as being a leader and mentor to other staff, is also very happy to muck in wherever is needed.  From helping to serve a formal dinner to assisting the Housekeepers with any cleaning issues.

  • The estate includes extensive gardens and an equestrian centre, which is run entirely by the Equestrian Manager and her team, and is separate from the main house
  • There is an Estate Manager and his team of 3 Gardeners
  • A full-time Chef who caters for the family and guests whenever they are in residence
  • There is a team of 3 regular housekeeping staff and several casual ‘front of house staff’ who are used (depending on numbers) to look after guests and serve at tables over the weekends
  • There is an Office Administrator who manages the accounts, co-ordinates contractors, and is the main point of contact for any events held at the estate

It will be essential that you work on weekends. The family and guests will usually be at the property from Friday lunchtime through until Sunday afternoon.  The House Manager will be expected to work ‘long days’ on Fridays and Saturdays, ensuring that they are also there in the evenings.  During the week, when there is no-one staying at the property, hours can be more flexible - 2 full days off during the week. Generally, the House Manager will be expected to work over bank holidays and Christmas, as these are times when the house will be full of guests.

Accommodation: provided with a two-bedroom staff flat within the property. The flat has its own lockable front door.

If a prospective candidate wanted to bring their dog with them, for example, this would be considered.

Salary is negotiable depending on the candidate.
