As the estate manager, you are basically the CEO of the house. You work directly with the owners to plan and execute the overall management of the property and the services it requires. Estate management also includes the hiring, training, and ongoing management of staff required to meet the needs of the household, as well as the handling of a wide range of administrative tasks.
In some cases, you may be called upon to plan and execute events for your employers. Such events could range from a simple dinner for close friends of the family to a formal gathering for hundreds of guests. But don't fret. Although an estate manager is expected to wear many hats, a part of your duties and responsibilities is to also delegate tasks to the other members of the household staff as you see fit.
