Are you a superb PA with Estate Management experience based in Surrey or West Sussex? If so, read on!
A truly remarkable opportunity has arisen for a confident, capable and self-possessed Private PA / Estate Manager to assist an enormously successful private individual with estate, household, lifestyle and corporate duties.
The principal - an enormously successful businessman - runs a large estate in West Sussex. The estate comprises a working equestrian/polo yard and full staff, so an interest in - or experience working within - the polo world would be a distinct advantage.
You'll take overall responsibility for running the Estate procurement, driving hospitality, sponsorships, and managing a team of people. You'll also need a head for figures and ideally previous bookkeeping experience, as the principal would like someone to take fiscal control of the day-to-day running of the Estate.
In terms of household management, there is already a full domestic staff in place so your position will be a purely supervisory role.
In terms of the Principal's corporate life, you'll take on full responsibility for overseeing his movements, so you must be comfortable with organising extensive, seamless travel. The Principal is a very senior figure in the finance world, and has multiple property interests (both in the UK and overseas) so you'll also be involved in the management of this.
This is an urgent role and we will be interviewing within the next week, so please don't hesitate: if you are interested, send us your CV today.
Please note: Due to the nature of this role, only applicants living in Surrey or West Sussex will be considered.
