Houseman Description

A Houseman is generally tasked with the daily "hands on" duties in a residence, and he is often counted on to help ensure the smooth and orderly running of a residence.  Responsibilities include heavy housework, such as cleaning floors, vacuuming, polishing silver, accepting heavy deliveries, and moving furniture and other items.  A Houseman may also perform a range of other duties, such as filling in for the Housekeeper if she calls in sick, watching the children, or helping the Chef in preparation for a formal dinner party.

The Houseman may also be required to care for the core grounds of a residence, including the main entry area of the house and the walkways.  In a household in which there is only a Houseman (i.e., not additional domestic staff), the Houseman also typically does what a Housekeeper would be required to do. In residences that have broader domestic staffs, The Houseman may also serve as a “right-hand man” to an Estate/Household Manager or to another domestic staff leader.

Contact us today for a FREE, no-obligation, privacy-assured phone consultation. Please call our Hamptons Office at 631-204-1100, our NYC Office at 212-521-4373, or our Florida Office at 561-962-4188. We look forward to hearing from you regarding your domestic staffing needs.
