We have an opportunity for a US-Legal Chief Steward/ess to work this summer on an Estate.
Candidates must have refined (client requested 5 star) serving skills - service and wine knowledge is required. The Chief must be able to manage the interior staff - both service and housekeeping. This will include scheduling time off while maintaining the highest level of service and housekeeping.
The home is well over 20,000 square feet and there are large terraces (think indoor/outdoor spaces) to be constantly maintained and serviced.
We have 12 guests scheduled for 5 days of each week, but even when the larger group of guests leave, there will still be 2 guests for the other 2 days.
Dinner parties with themes, decorations and table settings are expected (and yes, that means for 12 during the heavy-guest periods). The Chief should have a real flair for theme parties and decor.
We expect 2 very large events during the summer season which will call for extraordinary organization skills and pulling in additional staff.
This position is both managerial and hands-on. We know it is a lot of work for the summer.
We are happy to consider men as well as women as this is a non-yacht position - so cabin arrangements are not a concern, but candidates must be able to work in the US without any restriction and will be paid from a US corporation.
