Estate Management was traditionally an inherited position, passed from father to son, on a landed estate that was in one family for generations. Today’s property management jobs are very different. There are an increasing number of women entering the industry and most candidates have qualifications in agriculture, business management or property maintenance as well as a background in agriculture, horticulture or land management. Regular duties will usually include:
- Grounds maintenance
- Upkeep of house and outbuildings
- Health and Safety
- General security of land and buildings
- Maintenance and use of machinery and equipment
- Overseeing staff and contractors.
In addition, depending on the estate in question, an Estate Manager might be responsible for:
- Lawn and woodland management
- Managing a shoot
- Supervising land use (film crews, wedding parties etc).
