How Do We Recruit Your Ideal Estate Manager?

The estate manager is an essential cog in the working mechanism of a landed estate. Those requiring a private estate manager will often have a large household with multiple buildings and several hundred acres of land. It’s a highly respected role, so it is of the utmost importance that you find the right person for the job. We know that, and we will give you the best advice depending on your specific needs.

We look into flexible, adaptable, highly skilled candidates who have extensive experience managing large properties and staff for high-profile individuals. This is key when it comes to estate management.

As an Estate Manager Recruitment Agency, we look for prize candidates with experience. The estate manager is a trusted position that requires people to oversee household staff members such as maids, gardeners, private chefs and manage third parties such as tradespeople and the general running of the property. They must be capable of servicing your household’s many facets and unique aspects.

After all, whilst it is an “Estate”, it is also your home. So we ensure that the estate management services you require are met in a way that exceeds your expectations.

Why Use An Experienced Agency When Hiring Estate Managers?

Estate Managers oversee and contribute to the profitability of their employer’s estate. They are responsible for maintaining and preserving what is already there, bringing in contemporary approaches to ensure it performs at its best and fulfils its potential. Land management is a vital part of the role.

At Melissa Offer, we understand each estate is different, and therefore the estate management services you require. This role may involve managing other household staff members; it can extend from budgeting and administrative tasks to event planning and building maintenance. We understand that this role might even involve looking after other households and properties.

While some estate managers have a more ‘hands-on’ role, depending on the employer’s needs, their primary function remains to be the management and supervision of all household staff and keep an eye on the big picture.

Whether you’re hiring estate managers in London or need the services to extend further out across the UK, at Melissa Offer Private Staffing, we have the knowledge and experience to match your needs to the perfect candidate. We look for private estate managers and experienced professionals and leaders who can truly bring or keep a household up to high standards.
