Tips for Staffing an Estate

Being a luxury homeowner with a sprawling estate allows for many benefits. However, managing an estate can also be a challenge. Finding and hiring the most efficient Estate Staff will help ensure maximum enjoyment of your home’s privacy and luxury.

Understand Your Estate’s Staffing Needs

Before hiring anyone to work in your estate, it’s essential to know what you require. In order to do this, it is necessary to identify all of the roles that need to be filled and the responsibilities under each role. For example, a Chef is responsible for cooking meals, but they must also plan menus, stock the pantry, and source the highest-quality ingredients.

You must also determine how many staff members will be required in order for your estate to run at top efficiency. For example, you may need Housekeepers in addition to a Butler and a Chef.

Your budget and the size of your estate will also help you determine what’s needed. You may need full-time or live-in staff such as a Nanny or Security Protection.

Another consideration is your lifestyle. A musician who is on tour for several months of the year may require staff available to travel. A family that is away on vacation for a number of months may require a Family Assistant to manage household duties, as well as a Travel Nanny while abroad.

Addressing these important points will provide you with a clear picture of your unique requirements.

Ensure the Staff Members You Hire Are Professionals

The importance of hiring professional staff members simply cannot be understated. This is the only way to ensure that all of the necessary tasks related to your estate are not just completed, but completed to your satisfaction.

Any truly professional household staff member will be trained in their specific role and be highly skilled.

Risks of Hiring the Wrong Staff Members

There are a number of options to consider when hiring staff members for an estate. For example, there are household staff members who can take on several roles. This will reduce the number of staff members you hire, ultimately reducing your cost, but it will not ensure that the individual possesses all the specialized skill sets required to ensure productive and efficient management of a household.

Individuals who are not skilled in their roles or responsibilities can raise your risk of experiencing unprofessionalism. This is unacceptable for individuals who must rely on staff to keep everything running smoothly.

Multiple staff members who are qualified to work in their specific roles will provide you with the best quality service. Our commitment at Staffing at Tiffanie’s is to present only candidates that are highly qualified.

What Are the Benefits of Living in a Well-Staffed Estate?

Experienced Household Staff offer your estate many benefits. Not only can these professionals ensure your estate runs efficiently, but hiring staff also helps improve the security and safety of your home.

Professional staff members are experts at their particular household duties. This provides you with peace of mind that everything will be addressed as it should be. The personalized service, enhanced comfort, and unparalleled convenience that Estate Staff provide, allow you to greatly improve your enjoyment and quality of life.

The Estate Manager

Estate Managers are professionals who oversee a household’s staff. Not only is an Estate Manager an expert assistant to a homeowner, but they have an intimate understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the staff working for them.

It’s this understanding that allows the Estate Manager to lead, support, motivate, schedule, and arrange staff as necessary to optimize a household’s productivity and efficiency.

A professional Estate Manager can help to make your life easier. A few duties include:

  • Process your household’s finances
  • Pay bills and staff payrolls
  • Schedule household and vehicle maintenance/repairs
  • Schedule itinerary for travel

Estate Managers also assist with the planning and organization of special events and ensure that all household staff members are available and ready when they’re needed. This is just  part of an Estate Manager’s job description.
