We have a delightful international businesswoman who has recently settled into a beautiful, newly renovated Georgian property in West London.  She is seeking an experienced and very proactive Butler who will be able to deal with the day-to-day running of her home.  The residence is spread over 5 floors so you must be energetic to deal with the stairs!

You must have previous experience within a private household and be a confident London driver.  The principal has a busy life and would like to be able to rely fully on this individual to ensure the house is immaculately presented and maintained without asking for approval to act.

The lady travels between short stays in London and would like you to be available for longer hours when in residence, this can be balanced with less hours during her absence.  There will be a Housekeeper employed and outside cleaners will come in when the principal is away, all of which you will manage and organise completely.  Her Mother occasionally visits the property and you will attend to her needs also.

Your duties would include, but not be limited to:

When the Principal is in Residence

  • Possibly meet the principal from the airport and drive her home
  • Be at the residence for her arrival, whether late or early
  • Prepare simple light meals for her when required - she likes to cook
  • Formal Butler duties, focusing on looking after her every need
  • Overseeing the Housekeeper, assisting where required
  • Open the household up in the morning; ensure the property is secure on leaving
  • Ensure the outside areas a kept clean and tidy
  • Assist the Housekeeper with packing and unpacking
  • Carry out any ad hoc request from the principal
  • Organise dinner parties, extra staff, flowers, and oversee completely

When the Principal is Travelling

  • Organise any essential maintenance/services required
  • Instruct and oversee outside cleaners to totally clean the property
  • Clean kitchen, pantry areas
  • Oversee the gardeners, Pond Company, window cleaners
  • Ensure the property is secure, alarmed nightly

The key to this role is providing a professional personal Butler service to the principal when in residence and taking care of all the cleaning, maintenance etc when she is absent.  She wishes to find someone long-term who she can trust and totally rely on.
