We regularly have opportunities across our estates for both residential and non residential positions. Please see below for an overview of the role.

Cognatum Estates Limited is a not-for-profit company responsible for the management of over 60 exclusive private estates across southern England and we are looking to recruit both visiting and resident managers (joint and single positions). Vacancies become available from time to time.

In general, you will be responsible for the day-to-day estate management and to be on hand to assist owners with advice or in emergencies. This is a demanding job and requires a sympathetic and genial personality but just as essential is the need to be well organised, practical and calm in a crisis. Experience in building and grounds maintenance will be beneficial.

In the case of joint managers, you will also be responsible for all the maintenance of the grounds, including care of lawns, shrubs and small building maintenance tasks. It is important to be competent with minor repairs, have a keen interest and set high standards in improving the appearance of the gardens.

If you would like the opportunity to work in a highly rewarding environment and can rise to the challenge that managing a Cognatum retirement estate demands, we would like to hear from you.
