Travelling Butler-Valet I London, Switzerland & France

£60K to £75K DOE

 

To start as soon as possible, a traditionally styled butler with valet skills is required, to work for an international businessman and his family.

Our client’s primary family home is located in London. However, the butler will spend only ad-hoc periods in London, because the majority of the role will be spent, moving with the client, across Europe, to Switzerland and France with perhaps the occasional trip to the US. The family also have a yacht.

Providing all normal butler and valet services, the role will require:

  • packing and unpacking,
  • valet duties,
  • meal and drink service (for the client and guests),
  • ensuring smooth unflustered travel between different homes and locations,
  • Overseeing and organising entertaining and in-house events (including guest-list management),
  • table dressing, including: tablescapes, room-setting and floral displays,
  • running errands, along with any ad hoc duties as needed.

It is also important to note that candidates must also be technically minded, and able to deal with (or learn about) the various systems incorporated into most moderns homes, not forgetting trouble-shooting issues encountered with: IPad’s, computer’s (Microsoft Office and MAC), smart phones, Sky boxes and connectivity/Wi-Fi issues.

Candidates should present experience gathered in notable households, be professional and discreet, and have an eye for the aesthetic while showing they are focussed on the detail. Excellent checkable references are vital along with a obvious passion and a vocational approach to their work. 

Apart from excellent English, other languages, such as French, would be advantageous. Candidates must also be confident drivers.

The client is proud of the fact that his family retain many of their staff for years, and in consequence, understanding that longevity is important, we are looking for candidates who are looking for a job into which they can settle.
