House Manager

The Burn

Location: Glenesk, Nr Edzell, Angus

Salary: £25,000 per annum, plus accommodation

The Burn is a magnificent 18th century mansion house in a 190-acre estate located in Angus. The Burn is an educational trust with the principal purpose of providing a residential study centre for students and academics from Scottish and other universities and Goodenough College.

The Burn is part of Goodenough College, a charity that supports international postgraduate students studying in the UK.

We are seeking to appoint a House Manager to work closely with the Bursar ensuring that guest accommodation and support is of the highest standard. The post holder has direct management responsibility for housekeeping and is primarily focused on setting and maintaining the highest standards of customer service. Working directly for the Bursar, the House Manager is customer facing and is one of three functional team leaders (the others being the Head Chef and Estate Manager). This is a ‘hands-on’ role and the incumbent would be expected to help out when required and to lead by example. Working hours are scheduled to fit with customer demand and in this regard the House Manager must be prepared to work at weekends and accept that shift patterns will change.

In return you will be working in a friendly and supportive environment in a pleasant rural Scottish setting with good competitive pay and working conditions.

Please note that a self-contained accommodation is available within The Burn House. It is preferable that the House Manager lives in this accommodation, but all candidates will be considered for this role.

Don’t miss this exceptional and unique opportunity!
