The ability and willingness to work outside of your standard job description on occasion to assist the Global Property Manager (who you will be reporting to and is based on the Estate) with ad hoc tasks and errands, would be appreciated.

Days/hours: The basic working hours are 40-50 hours per week, Monday – Friday however when the family are in residence you will be required to work weekends with additional time off in the week.

There will be occasional travel to the principal's other property in the UK.
