Keeping a household running requires overseeing many moving parts. Families, large estates, and property owners around the world have the option of hiring a team of household staff that can ensure the property and the people living inside of it are cared for well. Not sure where to begin?
House Manager and/or Estate Manager
If you plan on hiring more than one person to work in your home, hiring a house manager is a great idea. This person will manage the other staff, while also performing their own duties around the home. They are integrally involved in stepping in to assist other staff members, should they be absent. An estate manager is experienced in running larger estates or properties. They might also have additional training, skills, or certification in accounting or bookkeeping, and are also skilled in administrative and organizational tasks. They are well-versed in creating and managing schedules and are often put in charge of large homes or multi-property residences.
There are many different types of nannies. For any family with children, a nanny can be a very important part of their life. A newborn nanny for example, comes with specific training and expertise in the care of newborns and infant care. Other nannies may be experienced in school-age care and can also help with homework or housework. Nannies can be hired on a part-time, full-time, live-in, or live-out basis, allowing families to have the support and extra hand they need to help around the home.
Part-time or full-time housekeepers clean and care for the property. They not only ensure the home is kept clean and organized, but many housekeepers are also experienced in pet care, light cooking, or shopping duties, as well.
Whether it’s a large estate, a family, or an individual that requires a personal chef, this person is a professional that can be hired full-time or part-time. They come with culinary training, and can help with meal planning, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and cleanup. If you have specific dietary requirements or plan on hosting regular dinner parties, a personal chef can be a great support.
