THE ROLE OF AN ESTATE MANAGER
Working on anything from smaller residential estates of a few hundred acres to much larger commercial estates such as large-scale farms, the role of an estate manager remains the same - to oversee the smooth running of the estate. On larger estates in particular, the estate manager would be responsible for all estate staff as well as accounting and bookkeeping, whereas estate managers on smaller estates are likely to be more involved in the day to day operation.
RUNNING THE BUSINESS OF THE ESTATE
If an estate operates as a business, then an estate manager will oversee the smooth running of this business function. Examples include:
A residential or commercial property portfolio
A commercially run shoot
Farming (arable, livestock or mixed)
Management of tenant farms
FACILITIES DIRECTOR OR ESTATE MANAGER?
The facilities director role is similar to the estate manager role, in that it is there to oversee the smooth operation of the estate. However, it will generally involve responsibility for properties that are part of a large organisation such as a school or hospital. The facilities director will be responsible for ensuring that the properties are maintained, overseeing the teams involved. Facilities director is a senior management role, and will generally report to the MD, FD or CEO.
