House Managers are unique

Needless to say, House managers are experienced in running a household with no supervision. Moreover, they ensure that the house is running well. Also, the house manager may arrange external household services, manage a budget, keep supplies stocked, plan special events, run errands and grocery shop. Sometimes the house manager is the only staff in the home. In such instances they cover all services including cleaning, child care, cooking, and laundry. Uniquely, a house manager can truly do it all!

On the other hand, the house manager can also be the supervisor to the rest of your staff if your estate is one that is fully staffed. Noteworthy is that the house manager can also be the point of contact to the estate owners for the entire staff as they may be the only one in direct contact with the head of household.
