Head Housekeeper or a Butler for Palazzo | Italy

Euro 4.5K Per Month D.O.E

 

A Seasonal Role: Start: May through until September 2019 (5 months)

We are seeking either a Head Housekeeper or a Butler who is naturally hands-on, but who comes with the ability and experience to, if necessary, coordinate a team of staff employed at a historic Palazzo in rural, central Italy.

Candidates MUST offer fluency in both Italian and English.

There are 12 existing domestic staff, who have been employed at the property for many years. Therefore, we need someone who will be able to approach this role with a degree of diplomacy and sensitivity. Candidates must be able to show they have a meticulous eye for detail, along with the ability to enthuse and motivate the team to strive for higher levels of perfection. This is a unique job, in a beautiful property, which requires someone who exhibits: a keen eye for the minute; gravitas; superior communication and people-skills, along with top-notch practical skills and know-how in their specialism, be it housekeeping or food and beverage service. 

The owner is a UHNW individual, and is all too familiar with the finer things in life, and lives in the fast lane, often only organising or confirming travel schedules at the very last minute! Therefore the property will need to be maintained in a permanent state of readiness. Preferring rural Italy to the frenetic lifestyle of Sardinia or St Tropez, the client uses the Palazzo to wind-down and entertain often extremely high-profile friends and guests.

As already stressed, candidates MUST be fluent in Italian and in English, while it is also important they are naturally, actively and enthusiastically hands-on. We would like to find someone who will: lead-by-example; love working in a beautiful historical home; strive for perfection and show they can think on their feet, all the while managing complex logistics (often at very short notice) and dealing with ambiguity in their stride!

For the right person there is an opportunity that the role could open up to a full time position, or that it could include work at other properties, situated in the UK ot other areas in Italy.
