Candidates must understand this role will sometimes require long hours, along with the ability to travel freely to fit with the schedule of the client.

In addition to providing support, the  responsibilities of the companion will be to help manage the client's home, which includes: anything and everything to do with the property, from giving instructions to household staff, managing contractors and service providers, and to providing overview for household budgets, petty-cash and the general expenses of household.

There will also be the occasional need to organise small events including family parties and celebrations which are hosted by the Principal.

NOTE: The Principal sometimes travels with her extended family, including children nd grandchildren, so candidates with a loving and child friendly character will be important.
