Experience and Qualifications needed to be a house manager

Of course, all house managers on our books have years of experience working in households. Interestingly, some are former property managers. A house manager does not need a qualification but of course, it can help. Therefore, we train house managers at our famous British Butler Academy. However, in order to train with us, you need to have previous background in either corporate management, service or in a household. Interestingly enough, Private PAs become very good house managers often. Also, ex housekeepers can train and become excellent house managers with us.
