POSITION AS HOUSE MANAGER St. VINCENT and the GRENADINES
We are looking for a House Manager of a substantial private house used as a Family home when the owners are on the island, and is not rented out during other periods, but is periodically used by friends of the Family.
The Manager would lead a local team of 7 people, by example, in a very hands-on management position. The position requires the ability to lead, counsel and inspire the local team who are very capable but need management support and liaison with the wider Family support network.
The team is part of a broader number of resources, with the UK as the base of that broader support mechanism.
As a result the Manager would report into UK-based Senior Management, but also enjoy a wide-range of technical, mechanical, maritime and logistical support.
A candidate who is focused primarily on the calm, discreet and seamless provision of a holiday experience to The Owners and their guests is paramount.
Any experience with work or living in The Grenadines, or the wider Caribbean area would be advantageous.
The candidate would need to be very maintenance orientated and have experience in mechanics, the technical aspects of a large modern residence and its infrastructural systems, as well as maintenance of a varied fleet of vehicles and machinery.
There is a capable person already employed locally who has wide-ranging input into this area, however leadership with knowledge and experience in this area is required as part of the role.
There are 2 off-shore boats included as part of the house facilities. Experience with boats and their maintenance would be an advantage, despite local and UK support of the boat operation.
There are kitchen and front-of-house team members, as well as support from the UK as and when required. However any experience in hospitality, particularly in Private Service would be an advantage.
A 2 bedroom cottage on the property is included, with the provision of occasional UK hospitality staff staying in it too, when extra support to the Manager is required during guest visitation.
A generous package including limited international airfares for the purposes of leave periods is included. International medical cover would also be included.
