Hours: Monday – Friday - 09:00 - 18:00

Launched in 2011 Privée is one of London’s leading Concierge & Lifestyle houses. For our members we obtain the unobtainable. We are recruiting for a new Concierge & Lifestyle Manager to manage the Concierge & Lifestyle service for an existing luxury project in Chelsea with a mix of international residents.

Through our trusted and established network, the Lifestyle Manager will be the key contact to provide all residents with full scope of services including: 

  • Obtaining tickets for sold out events

The Concierge & Lifestyle Manager will also be the key contact between the Privée Management Team and the Development Management Team, being tasked to create onsite events as and when required.

In addition to responding to the enquiries from the residents on site, the successful candidate will also be tasked with building new supplier relationships, such as meeting with new hotels, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues – as well as being a key contact for existing suppliers. A proactive and personalised approach is crucial to delivering our service. 

This is very much a client facing role and therefore maintaining high standards of presentation is very important. We require a self-starter to join the team and hit the ground running, whilst being supported by the Concierge & Lifestyle Director and Privée Senior Management Team.
