Client Background
A professional couple, who live with their dog (no children), in the stunning Hamptons are now looking for a new member of staff.  Their home in the Hamptons is their main residence. They have a second property in the Hamptons as well as a property in Manhattan.  They renovated their current property in 2019, and the impressive property is a smart home, with luxury finishes.  They have a houseman, and recently had housekeepers in the property, however they are looking to find a new senior Estate Manager who can run their estates, and provide the highest standards of care for the clients.

Duties
Your overall responsibility will be to manage the couple's estate, which includes a mansion and a second property in The Hamptons, as well as a home in Manhattan. You will be responsible for managing the staff and ensuring that the properties are run to the highest standards.  You will be the go-between for the principal and the staff, managing the team effectively to ensure that the principals have a well-managed and stress-free home. 

You should be highly organised and efficient at your job and used to managing teams of staff.

A weekly trip to the home in Manhattan is required to ensure maintenance at that property.

This is a new role and the couple do not currently hire an Estate Manager so they are looking for someone who has great initiative and the ability to adapt well and respectfully take control.
