Houseman to live in at a couple’s country residence in Buckinghamshire. The couple have children and grandchildren who visit – mostly at weekends – so someone family/child friendly. The family call this position ‘a modern butler’ – so no shooting parties etc. Duties – to cook simple meals on occassions – when the chef is off. Responsible for security and general care of the property, laying fires, reading meters etc. Capable of liasing with other staff members – there are gardeners, a housekeeper, cleaners and a chef who work there…but not really a managerial position. Must drive – as the property is in a rural location – a ten minute drive from the nearest rail station. The client is seeking someone with a history of long term positions – who is used to the pace of country life. Very happy to see more mature candidates.
