A Gardener in a Private Household
Not everyone has a green thumb to care for plants and flowers and especially if one has a busy schedule it is impossible to maintain a presentable garden. HNW and UHNW clients generally have large estates and hire professional gardeners to maintain the exterior of their properties.
Gardeners study horticulture and/or landscape design to learn about the gardening industry and master their skills. They have the skills and know-how of using gardening equipment and products. As a gardener working for private clients, it is important to understand what the clients' preferences are, for example understanding what kind of plants and flowers they like and the type of gardening products they prefer.
The skills of a laundress in Private Household
The term laundress or washerwoman are old-fashioned terms from the 19th-century. In the dictionary, it is a woman who washes and iron clothes and linens. In luxury household hiring, a laundress is widely popular and the duties and responsibilities have been modernised.
Clients could request for a housekeeper/laundress or laundress/wardrobe manager to manage their clothing, garments, and linens. The background of a laundress can vary, several are seamstresses, tailors, have worked for luxury dry-cleaners, luxury and 5-star hotels, or private families.
Why you would need a house manager for your Property?
The main responsibility of a house manager is to ensure that the household of their principal runs effortlessly and making sure that every staff member knows what their duties and responsibilities are in the property.
The same as an office manager, a house manager is responsible of managing a number of employees, hiring and training new staff members, scheduling work timetables, and reporting to their boss. However a house manager is also responsible for the security of the property, for any finances related to the property and ensuring the property is fully stocked with house and any supplies needed by the principals and the staff members.
A butler and their duties
Many of us have seen butlers in movies and tv shows working for royal families in the 19th-century, today butlers are still in high demand and work for UHNW and HNW clients around the globe.
It is very important as a butler to always work professionally and to make their principals' environment as comfortable as possible. Butlers work very closely with their principals and are a trusted household staff member. A number of butler duties and responsibilities have definitely changed within the years and many butlers are expected to adapt to the changes while still following the etiquette they have been trained to follow.
