Butler training is in essence, training on how to provide outstanding service to an employer.
The Guild of Professional English Butlers has been training individuals around the world for careers in 5* hotels, private households, castles and palaces.
Butlers are often sought-after by the rich and famous to manage their homes and yachts; there are also many hotels around the world who provide an individual butler service to their guests. Many are trained by The Guild of Butlers.
Even top city executives are being given their own butler or lifestyle managers to help compensate for the long hours they are expected to work. These lifestyle managers are employed to help with all the day-to-day tasks that a top city executive does not have time to manage; this may include looking after the dry cleaning requirements, cooking, arranging dinner parties or booking holidays. Being a butler is for many a license to travel.
Butlers are employed all over the world and this makes it easy for the professional butler to choose which country he would like to work in together with the type of residence. Some will find themselves in the enviable position of looking after an employers luxury yacht for part of the year.
