Similar to the Estate Manager, the House Manager has a very broad range of skills and knowledge. Backgrounds range from Hotel and Restaurant Management to formal Butler school training. Others simply "fall" into the field by helping out a friend of the family at their home or crossing over from an assistant or nanny position. Many homes require only part-time help to ease the burden of the owners' busy schedules, but most families quickly realize the value of having a full-time person. Like all positions, the family's service needs and property size will dictate the duties and level of formality for the Butler / House Manager. Useful traits include:
•Office or restaurant management and service skills. (More formal background or schooling depending on the household.)
•Broad knowledge of household items and their care.
•Good social skills and personnel management.
•Business and technology capability including computers and accounting.
•Leadership and motivation skills.
•Independent and team project management.
•Problem solving and "get it done" attitude. Very "hands-on" and ready to pitch in.
•Very resourceful, quickly learns the how and where to get things done in the local area.
•Negotiating and supervisory skills for outside contractors and other staff.
Again, the right person for the job will be adaptable to the standards and desires of the employer. Less formal households may choose to hire someone with related skills simply because they like their personality and can be trusted, while a more formal, larger organization will tend toward an extremely seasoned and perhaps formally schooled candidate. The Estate Manager or the owners themselves will sometimes be able to train the House Manager on the necessary and specific procedures of the home. In most cases, however, a well trained House Manager with years of experience in similar households is the only consideration.
