House Manager FAQs

Some of our commonly asked questions regarding the house manager position. If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 3033 0000 or Mail@MasseysAgency.co.uk.

We don’t automatically undertake a DBS for every candidate that registers with us as sometimes candidates may find their own jobs and only stay on our books for a short while. However if a client employs someone who we introduce and who does not have a current DBS but is required to have one for the position, then we are happy to do this for you.

We are able to supply staff across the whole of the UK, including Scotland and Ireland. We also cover International positions.

No, we provide a free service for candidates who are looking for work and we only invoice clients if they employ a candidate who we have introduced to them.

Unfortunately we do not provide staff for short term assignments, however we do accept some contracts for a minimum of three months upwards.

We absolutely love hearing from candidates with good, relevant experience in private households. Unfortunately without previous experience it is unlikely we will be able to help you but we are always happy to advise. Chauffeurs must have previous experience of working as a private chauffeur and not purely in chauffeur services or taxi driving.

A vacancy could be filled within a matter of days or it could take longer. The timescale depends on which candidates are registered at the time of you giving us your vacancy, and whether they match your requirements. We will never just send a CV for the sake of it or to ‘make up the numbers’.

We are happy to organise short trials wherever possible, however you need to bear in mind that it might not always be possible if a candidate is in a full time job. In order to address the fact that very occasionally things may not always go to plan, we offer a rebate/replacement period for your peace of mind.

There are many interchangeable duties that can apply to both individual positions particularly if a household only employs one or the other, then the duties may overlap. However if a household employs both a butler and a house manager, the two positions are very distinct. Under these circumstances a butler would normally focus on such things as managing the wine cellar, acting as a valet, looking after guests, serving drinks, providing silver service at formal tables and often travelling with the principal. A house manager would purely concern themselves with the organization and running of the household itself, this would include overseeing the housekeeping, handling repairs and maintenance in the house and ensuring things run smoothly.
