Fancy Working For the Queen?

A job vacancy has opened up at Buckingham Palace in the Butlers team.

The role is critical to the inner workings of the Palace and the chosen person will be expected to work full time. While the salary is just below the U.K’s minimum wage, at £20,806-a-year, it does include accommodation and meals, at the Palace none the less. The role also includes 33 days holiday, a 15 per cent employer contribution pension scheme.

What does the role entail?

The job advert reads: ‘The Master of the Household’s Department handles all aspects of hospitality across the Royal residences. 

‘By joining our well-established career pathway, we will help you become an all-round hospitality expert. Learning from our experienced team, you’ll deliver a hospitality service to the highest standard.

‘You’ll deliver functions of all scales, from official lunches and receptions, to state occasions, providing an exceptional guest experience for all. ‘But it’s the thorough preparation that ensures success. And so you’ll learn all the specialist professional skills needed to make sure presentation and delivery are seamless.

Applicants don’t need to have a background in hospitality, as they will be trained on the job. They will also be given the opportunity to achieve an accredited Butlering qualification.

Just London?

No, in fact, the role will see the Butler moving from Castle to castle depending on the demands of the Royal family. 

The advert adds that candidates must have a ‘proactive approach and ability to tackle new challenges’.

It continues: ‘Although we can guide you on how to deliver an exceptional service at a wide range of events, you’ll already have a polite, friendly and approachable working style, and will be able to communicate with all kinds of people.

‘You’ll also have a good attention to accuracy and detail, and get satisfaction from a job well done, delivering work to a consistently high standard. ‘And above all, you’ll be committed to a career in hospitality and keen to develop your professional knowledge.’
