These are numerous and range from the straightforward to the obscure! First and foremost the concierge is here to ensure the communal areas and residents’ facilities are well managed, operational, clean and smart. We want residents to enjoy their home and the facilities that are available to them and take great pride in ensuring they can enjoy a luxurious, quality service. Of course we are also there to undertake simple tasks such as receiving parcel deliveries when residents are away from their home. Further to this we provide a friendly and familiar face that residents recognise, and we regularly provide advice regarding enjoyable local activities, excellent nearby restaurants and other areas of interest. How can residents make the most of the service you provide? This answer is easy ~ just ask! The Concierge is here to assist with any matters residents may have. If we cannot help with a certain request, then we will certainly be able to point them in the direction of someone else that can. What is it like working at the Estate? It is a majestic place set in the most beautiful countryside West Sussex has to offer. The attention to detail City & Country has gone to in ensuring the highest quality of craftsmanship in restoring and converting these wonderful buildings is simply outstanding. I feel proud to be part of such an esteemed development. It is fascinating to be working in such an historic environment and I have spent many enjoyable hours reading about the history of the wonderful Grade II* listed Sanatorium, the Jekyll Gardens and the wider estate. What do you enjoy most about your job? Without a doubt it is meeting the lovely people that have chosen to live on the Estate; I thoroughly enjoy getting to know them all. Being part of such an exciting project, which is progressing and evolving on a daily basis, is also hugely satisfying.
