Estate Manager / Household Manager Description
An Estate Manager is primarily a chief administrator who bears responsibility for running an Employer’s estate(s).

He or she has a broad knowledge base relating to general household management duties. In addition, the Estate Manager/Household Manager will typically have a formal education, computer skills, and basic financial skills.
