Anonymous F1 Driver Now Hiring A Personal Assistant/Estate Manager

A job listing for an “experienced” personal assistant/estate manager has preoccupied the BH office for one reason and one reason only: the employer is an undisclosed Formula 1 driver.

While it’s unclear whether this is someone active or a retired grid veteran, the description notes our ultra-high net worth (UHNW) client has a “work hard, play hard” mentality. Candidates are also warned they may be “up late keeping the same hours as the VIP” with overtime potential for those longer shifts.

“This is a hybrid position, so the candidate will need to be wearing more than one hat during the day,” reads the listing posted by executive assistant recruiter Brian Daniel. 

“To reiterate: this role is NOT for the faint of heart.”​

As for the key locations, while this position is primarily London-based, considerable time will be similarly spent in both Monaco and Sydney with well-furnished private accommodations provided at all three properties.

Now London and Monaco aren’t exactly telling indicators, given the former is within proximity reasonable proximity of at least four constructors (Red Bull Racing, Mercedes, McLaren, Williams); and the latter is a tax haven where the vast majority of drivers are legally “residents” (for obvious reasons). But the Sydney aspect does narrow it down slightly.

In terms of current F1 personalities with an AU affiliation, aside from Daniel Ricciardo and Oscar Piastri — both of whom hail from states outside of NSW — there’s honorary citizen Valtteri Bottas, who’s dating Aussie cyclist Tiffany Cromwell; and Lance Stroll, whose brother-in-law is Aussie Olympic medallist (and Danny Ric’s good friend) Scotty James.

In terms of retired names that could fit the bill, there’s Mark Webber and the Brabham brothers. Although who knows… perhaps the Sydney property is simply a secret holiday home.

Travel flexibilities to other locations, sometimes “for weeks at a time,” is another non-negotiable. Meaning if they’re retired, they’re still very much active in the scene (perhaps a pundit or a manager?).

But this is all largely irrelevant unless you actually fulfil the following criteria:

  • Bachelor’s Degree (required)
  • Strong letters of recommendation (required)
  • Pass a full background check (required)
  • Five-eight years experience (preferred)
  • ​Has an eye for detail & doesn’t skip a beat
  • Comes to work every day & gives it 110%
  • Is accountable with a no-excuses attitude
  • Has experience working at complex estates with many moving parts
  • Can lead domestic staff to exceed expectations every single day
  • Can roll up sleeves & lead by example (not afraid to get hands dirty)

The job listing continues: “Candidates with less-restricted passports from Europe and North America… have worked for entertainers or professional athletes are preferred, but not a deal breaker.”

The “competitive salary” is apparently around the $200,000 benchmark. You can try your luck out (and find out more) via the link below.
