A titled principal with a large 10-bedroom country estate in Dorset is recruiting a traditional Butler to join their established team of household staff. A handover will take place with the current Butler who has held the position for the past 6-years and is now leaving to pursue a different career path. A 2-bedroom cottage is provided approx 1-mile from the main estate.
This is a wonderful opportunity for a traditionally trained Butler looking for a service-led position. The role requires pure Butler duties only. A team of housekeeping staff is in place to see to all domestic duties and 24-hour security oversee the running of the estate.
On such occasions when the principals are entertaining more than 10 guests, an Under Butler will be brought in to support you with service.
This position requires a candidate with the highest standards and a team approach. Attention to detail is paramount with all aspects of the role. Additional staff include housekeepers, security, drivers, chefs and personal assistants.
Travel not required: Travel is not required for this role as the principals hire separate private staff to cover overseas properties. Annual leave must be taken during the school holidays when the family are not in residence.
Hours: Thursday-Sunday 08.00 – finishing after dinner service
Accommodation: 2-bedroom cottage (partners and dogs welcome)
Ideal start date: ASAP. A thorough handover with the current Butler must begin by mid-March at the latest.
