Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry-The rich are getting richer

After daily media and press for the past 2 years,  our owner and uber smart founder, Sara Vestin Rahmani (who enjoys writing in her part time, has put together a little piece for the general public to read, hopefully enjoy and to also to get an Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry.

This piece also answers questions we have had at Bespoke Bureau about Old Style Butlers vs Modern Butlers

“The modern day butler is a far cry from Downton Abbey’s impeccably mannered Mr Carson. In that era, the butler had to embody the virtues demanded of the head of a household, as well as polishing silver, decanting the wine, and ensuring the rest of the staff were performing their duties, looking immaculate and following the protocols of their rank. I am struggling  to find any parallels between Carson’s role and that of a modern Butler that the Agency trains and places with wealthy people.

Top qualities in a Butler

In my opinion, the two most desirable qualities in a good butler are loyalty and discretion. Loyalty, but also the ability to ignore his pretensions (and there are many), and discretion as a confidant who can also stay socially aloof. However, nobody can do the job without having service at heart.

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry-Why is the English Butler forever so popular?

It is no surprise to me that it is English butlers who are most in demand, and that our clients at the Bespoke Bureau are are mainly from The Middle East, China and Russia. For the new super-rich, an English butler is a status symbol. The English are seen as refined, dignified, deferential, reserved, formal when needed, and able to adapt to any given situation without giving way to emotion or anxiety. They are also there to bring sophistication and old-world charm to the halls of their otherwise ostentatious homes; a touch of class alongside the gold taps and garish chandeliers. The also will not be overwhelmed when they get an insight to the Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

I believe the true test of an intelligent modern butler is not how much he knows how to do, but how he behaves when he doesn’t know.

The role of the Butler

Constantly by the master’s side, the Butler is privy to things that even his inner circle do not know. This can be infuriating to others and there are always political waters to navigate. But with knowledge comes power, and with power comes responsibility. As the relationship grows, the Butler gets to observe his master’s quirks, his weaknesses and his vices, some of which are not always palatable. Once the Butler has  earned his boss’ trust, the lines between master and servant begin to blur. A butler will never expect to be treated equally (nor would he want to be), but the hope is that one day the master/boss will come to rely upon having the Butler by his side. This is the unspoken understanding, that one day the balance of power will shift, and the butler will know more about what his master wants than the master himself. Classic Jeeves and Wooster stuff.

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry, what is expected of a modern day butler?

As a modern-day butler you are expected to be well versed in etiquette, and conduct yourself with a suitable demeanour; on the other hand you must also adapt to your master’s culture and all the contradictions this brings with it. A Butler is always on call, and should never say no unless he can be certain that no is the only answer. The modern day butler must be able to navigate the trials and tribulations of the modern world with efficiency and style and, in whichever way he can, make life a little bit easier for his master. In that respect The Butler’s job probably hasn’t changed much since the 19th-century, other than the fact that he carries two BlackBerrys instead of tails.

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry-The rich are getting richer

The gap between the rich and the poor has been growing wider for some time, but the really rich have now achieved escape velocity. They have far more money than ever before—and a mind-boggling number of decisions to make about spending it. The “ultrarich”—loosely defined as those with investable assets of more than £30 million—often lead tremendously complicated lives. There are approximately 30,000 such people based in the US and  at least 100,000 elsewhere in the world, according to extensive surveys we have done at the London based Bespoke Bureau. They are the aristocracy of a new Gilded Age—and providing services to them has turned into a gold rush.

Problems amongst the uber wealthy

Becoming wealthy in the first place might seem like the hard part, but once a person has money, other real challenges present themselves: What kind of rich person does one want to be? Is a sprawling mansion or a slender townhouse preferable? Should one build a game park or an English garden? And then there is the matter of figuring out who should look after all these things. To hear the caretakers of the ultrarich describe it, the wealthiest among us are like dinghies adrift on the open sea—lost in their money and the endless options that come with it. (You could call it “Overwhelmed Billionaire Syndrome.”) Fortunately, the free market will provide: an army of experts has sprung up to help them navigate their lives.

Concierge service insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

One of the Bespoke Bureau experts is Monica, a former recruitment consultant for the company who wanted to step up her game and start working more closely with the people that had relied on her services for the company before. She helps the wealthiest people make their lives easier. and transformed her role into a “lifestyle consultant,” and she hasn’t looked back.

Some of the Agency’s customers have problems that the merely upper-middle class could hardly conceive of. She has helped parents look into buying a £40,000 dressage horse for their daughter to ride while away at college, sorted through museum-quality art collections forgotten in storage, and found an expert to negotiate aircraft leases. One family considered hiring her to find public- relations specialists who could help with crisis management—basically, to keep them out of the news and off the Forbes 400 list. (Getting on the list may be a triumph in some circles, but in others it’s even better to stay off.) And a young hedge-fund manager asked the agency if they could find someone to identify the best parties in London, New York and Beijing each week—and to make sure he was invited.

Business for concierge firms like Bespoke isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon. A look at the wealthiest UK residents reveals that those at the very pinnacle—the top 0.1 percent—have done so well in recent years that everyone else is eating their (gold) dust.  The average net worth of those on the Forbes 400 list has mushroomed in the last twenty years, rising from $390 million to $2.8 billion, and the number of U.S. billionaires has increased over that same time from thirteen to 374.

What about jealousy amongst the commoners?

In the meantime, the  UK’s less fortunate have seen their share of the country’s wealth drop—but there’s nothing like shopping to ease the pain! Lubricated with cheap credit and the social acceptability of carrying huge amounts of personal debt,  Britons at all income levels pile into the luxury marketplace alongside those who can actually afford to shop there. And so the truly wealthy have had to get more creative about spending money in order to distinguish themselves from the shopgirls waiting on them, who are likely to be carrying the same Hermès handbag (or at least a convincing knockoff). One way to set themselves apart is by pouring resources into experience and “lifestyle.”

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry-One must have a yacht

The staff we place with the Billionaires

All manner of professionals see a future in whispering into billionaires’ ears. (It would be a decidedly “soft” science, but one can imagine “helicopter-fleet management” becoming a university degree.) Like any subculture, this piece of the service sector comes with its own assumptions and its own delusions. Its practitioners are as slick and on-message as a group of Wharton-trained management consultants. Plenty of self-aggrandizing jargon gets thrown around: terms like ultra-high net worth are mixed in with Jack Welch–style business talk; rich people are principals, and even the most minute aspects of their lives require management in order to be optimized. This work requires subtlety, even amateur psychoanalysis; those providing the services are selling trust to people with unlimited resources, coaxing them into articulating their dissatisfactions and then doing something about them (which usually means spending boatloads of money). Sometimes pie charts are involved.

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry-Positives and Negatives

The job isn’t all champagne and roses. You have to be selective, take it from someone who knows. I handle the finances for 44 ultrarich families. “I’m not just taking any multibillionaire off the street. These people are typically control freaks—extremely focused, sometimes extremely difficult. You don’t become a billionaire by just sitting passively by.”

The wealthier the client is, the more options there are for in-sourcing advice on how to spend creatively. I tout my company,  Bespoke Bureau , as “The Private Bank for Everything Except Money,” and my staff come armed with a Rolodex that would make a village yenta proud:  2000 names in 250 subcategories, including “designers of lighting for Gulfstream aircraft” and “specialists in seventeenth-century hand colored maps.” Once all those advisers are hired, they need to be managed, transforming the wealthy person into a corporation in miniature.

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry

Sara Vestin Rahmani-My own opinion

My sense that the ultrarich are sometimes almost helpless when confronted with the challenges of everyday life. Our job is effectively a combination of sales and public service. Around the next corner, for example, an opportunistic decorator might be lurking, hoping to bilk an unsuspecting billionaire on overpriced housewares. (Recall the former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlow­ski’s explanation of the wildly extravagant shower curtain found in his apartment after he was indicted: “I understand why a $6,000 shower curtain seems indefensible,” he told The New York Times. “But I didn’t even know about it. I just wasn’t even aware of it.”)

The wealthiest people are very vulnerable to being taken advantage of and we care about our clients, we protect them, we look after them and they trust us. New money doesn’t know what things cost, because they’ve never bought a Mercedes Maybach or a £10 million home before. And old money also has difficulties, because they’re shielded from these things. They don’t shop, generally. They have people shopping for them.

Insight to the Billionaire Service Industry- the demand of these people

A The ultrarich often have a “fix me, get me surgery right away” attitude, and will pay handsomely to have it accommodated. We have one family that kept a group of doctors on retainer for years, paying some of them more than £100,000 annually to be available at a moment’s notice. But the arrangement became difficult to maintain: the best doctors resisted being tied to a small group of patients, and some questioned whether the practice was ethical.

As this story illustrates, finding the market price is one of the trickier aspects of serving the ultrarich. There’s no transparency about what the fees should be. How much do you charge someone to curate their wine collection? You can’t comparison shop for that.

If you’re not the type of person who’s planning an anniversary party in the south of France for fifty friends, where you’re going to fly them over, we’re probably not going to be able to help you. It’s not that we can’t help you; but you’ll find that our fees are prohibitive for what you want done.”

Why silver service training London UK?

Many people really enjoy the sense of history that comes with Silver Service dining. In the right setting it can really add style to an event. You will be seen as a refined servant if you have done silver service training London UK or at any of our other locations. Silver service waiting originates from the fine houses of the British middle and upper classes of centuries gone by.

Why is it called Silver service training UK?

Referred to by the French as ‘Service Anglais’ silver service actually describes the process of serving diners from a ‘silver’ service dish to the diners plate, rather than the more common practice of serving the plate to the diner. The silver service waiter or waitress must be well acquainted with the right and technique. We teach the perfect techniques at our Silver service training London UK courses.

FAQ on work on a super yacht and the training we provide

Do I need previous experience to take one of your yacht interior courses?

No! A small amount of hospitality background will always be useful, but many students we train have no hospitality background and still find jobs – we’ll teach you everything you need to know. Sometimes it works out better if you don’t have any previous experience, especially in the service area, as you may have to ‘unlearn’ previously learnt bad habits.

yacht interior courses in London

Yacht interior courses in London- students doing barista training

How many students are on your yacht interior courses?

We train a maximum of 6-8 students, which gives you all the individual attention you need. Smaller classes are more conductive to learning – our stewardess/steward/super yacht interior courses are pretty full on with lots to learn and take in and it is better to do this in a small environment. You get to know your fellow students really well, and most arrange to travel to France or elsewhere after together to begin their search for work.

Do I really need to take one of your steward/ess yacht interior courses to work on board a super yacht?

It depends on what your previous work history include. Even if you are from a hospitality background, we would suggest the yacht interior courses we offer are still good for you. You will learn the ins and outs of the yachting industry, and be trained in the skills needed to the standards required by the super yachts. The yacht crew standards are generally higher than those on land. You will also learn how to write your CV to the standards of the yachting industry, and we’ll go through interview questions to increase your confidence. You will gain confidence, as the yachting industry can feel like a whole new world you know nothing about with any idea what to expect. There will be nothing worse than getting on board and feeling like a fish out of water when they ask you to iron 20 fitted sheets, detail clean the guest lounge or run downstairs and do a fancy towel fold in each of the guest cabins in preparation for a charter!

yacht interior courses

Do you provide super yacht recruitment after I’ve taken one of your yacht interior courses?

We are both a recruitment agency and a stewardess/steward super yacht interior courses training provider in the UK and overseas. We specialise in recruitment and yacht crew training. We also have many other contacts throughout the super yacht industry, and we are often privately contacted by Captains and Chief Stewardesses looking for crew (many of these chief stewardesses have previously trained with us, so come to us first when looking for a new crew member). When we do have jobs on our books we only promote our trained candidates, so please do contact us looking for work.

Other questions we get asked are:

Do I have to be thin or good looking to join the yacht industry?

Of course not. Just fit and active for your own sake as the roles onboard super yachts often require alot of moving around. We strive to qualify yacht workers and make them the best in business and we make sure that nobody is discriminated against.

Another question we get asked about is age. Think you’re too old, think again. Probably not. But you have to, again be fit and active and healthy of course

FAQ About the Super Yacht Industry

What is a super yacht?

A super yacht is a luxury travelling vessel sailing to the most glamorous and exotic locations in the world. Not to be confused with a cruise ship, they are private vessels – floating homes for the rich and famous, and include Jacuzzi’s, gyms, pools, cinemas, jet-ski, submarines and other water toys. They may have major artworks, and state of the art entertainment systems.

Champagne about to be served at the Yacht Academy Graduation

Champagne about to be served at the Yacht Academy Graduation

What crew positions are available on board super yachts and after I’ve taken one of your yacht interior courses?

There are numerous full time and seasonal positions on board these yachts as we specialise in providing training and recruitment for  stewards and stewardesses.

What does a steward/ess do on a super yacht?

A steward/ess is responsible for the care of the yachts’ interior as well as the guest’s wellbeing whilst on board. Duties will range from serving all meals, preparing buffets and parties, laundry and housekeeping, wine service, preparing cocktails and cleaning and maintaining the interior to 7-star standards. They will organise excursions for the guests, and may also be required to look after children

What experience do I need to have to get work on a super yacht?

Previous hospitality skills or customer service skills are a must for all interior crew, either through previous work experience or a super yacht steward/ess training course. Skills in silver service, flower arranging, bar tending and cocktail making, ironing and laundry skills are all required if you wish to become an interior crew member. Our yacht interior courses are considered the best around for you to find a job on a super yacht.

Do I need any formal qualifications to work on board a super yacht?

Yes! You need to have a certification called STCW-95 Basic Safety Training (STCW stands for Safety Training, Certification in Watch keeping) This is a 5 days course made up of 4 modules – Fire Fighting, Elementary First Aid, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities and Personal Survival Techniques.  You will also need an ENG1. This is a crew members medical needed for work on board the larger super yachts, and is slowly becoming mandatory for all crew members. We don’t offer this training

yacht interior coursesIs working on a super yacht the same as working on board a cruise ship?

No! Usually cruise liners have hundreds of crew members whereas on board a super yacht there will generally be a ratio of one crew member to one guest. You have direct interaction with the guests, of which there will only be maximum 12-14 on board at any one time, so it is a much more personalised service. The standards of a super yacht are much higher as every detail is scrutinised by the owners and guests – they will be used to the best of everything so standards are required to remain high at all times.

 How much can I earn after I’ve taken one of your yacht interior courses?

As a junior steward/ess you can earn from £1900 per month rising to £5000+ per month for a chief steward/ess position. If you work on board a charter yacht (this is a yacht that is hired out for holidays) you can also expect to earn roughly £500-£800 per week of charter in tips – that is on top of your salary! Also, you will not have to pay any living expenses, i.e. food or accommodation – all your uniform and even toiletries are provided!

Yacht interior courses-excellence at all times

Yacht interior courses-excellence at all times

How difficult will it be to find work on a super yacht?

The super yacht industry is growing year by year and there are not enough trained and experienced crew members to meet the demands of the yachts currently being built. There are yacht crew agencies all over the world looking to add new crew members to their books. The best time to find work is at the end of each season, when there are large crew changeovers. As long as you are willing to travel to the major yachting marinas in the south of France or Fort Lauderdale, apply what you learn during the training course and join the crew agencies as well as walking the docks.

Where do these super yachts travel?

You will find super yachts in the US (Fort Lauderdale/New York/New England etc.) all year round, in the Caribbean (St. Martin/St. Barts / Bahamas / Antigua etc.) from October to April and in the Mediterranean during April – October (France: St. Tropez / Cannes /Nice . Italy, Corsica and Sardinia etc.). There are many yachts that have their own itineraries, and travel to Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Papua New Guinea, French Polynesia, Australia, Tahiti, New Zealand…

I am a guy, can I work as a steward, or are the positions mainly for females?

More and more yachts these days request stewards due to owners’ preferences and crew sleeping arrangements. There are also positions available as steward/deckhand, where you work both on the interior and exterior or the vessel.

I am only looking for a 6 months position during a gap year, is yachting for me?

Yes! There are many seasonal positions in yachting, April to September being the most popular time for seasonal steward/ess positions in the Mediterranean.

I have just lost my job and am looking for a change in lifestyle, is being a steward/ess for me?

Why not? A permanent crew member is a very rewarding position and there are ample opportunities to move up the career ladder. You work with a group of like-minded individuals, and wake up every day in a new place. It is both challenging and rewarding. As a permanent crew member you will be entitled to great benefits including full health care and medical/dental insurance, 4-6 weeks paid holiday per year, and one return flight home a year.

What kind of person is working on a super yacht most suited to?

Those who are physically fit and healthy as you will often be required to work long house and be on your feet for most of the time! You need to have a friendly personality and be tolerant of others, as well as being a team player – essential when you are in a small super yacht crew.

I have always wanted to travel abroad and work but am a female travelling alone, is the yachting industry safe?

We think so. The yachting industry is safe for solo female travellers. Once you have arrived at a yacht crew house you will meet like-minded fellow travellers also mainly travelling alone and looking for work, so its a great way to meet people and make friends.

Yacht interior courses-excellence at all timesWhat do I do when I have completed one of the yacht interior courses?

Once you have completed one of the yacht interior courses you will be more than well equipped to join the super yacht industry. During the yacht interior courses you will meet many other prospective crew members that are also about to embark on this exciting career, and usually the trainees of each course make plans to go out to the yachting areas (either Antibes, or Fort Lauderdale) together to begin their search for work.

It sounds too good to be true.

Working on board a super yacht is an amazing experience and a great opportunity to travel the world whilst earning a fantastic salary. Although it can be glamorous, a lot of the time it is not. You will be working for very long hours to cater to guests’ needs, often with no breaks, and alot of the time you work for weeks and weeks on end with no days off, so yes you earn a great salary but you earn every penny of it!

Our mission for our Butlers at the Most British Butler Institute in London

A Bespoke Bureau Butler anticipates everything and overlooks nothing. He instinctively knows what to do and how to act in every situation. They are invisible yet always available. He knows who to meet and how to greet and when to disappear. Friendly but never familiar; they are the soul of discretion. Never flustered, a Bespoke Bureau butler remains composed at all times and always dresses immaculately. His/her every move is intuitive.

A housekeeper, sometimes known as a housekeeping manager, is responsible for organising the staff in a home or a hotel to make sure that all the rooms are kept clean, tidy and welcoming. They supervise staff in the department and encourage effective teamwork.

Opportunities after the training with us

Housekeepers tend to stay in their job for some time and so there are fewer vacancies than in other areas of the industry. There are more opportunities at a junior level but competition can be fierce.

There may be opportunities to move into a related job, such as front-of-house manager or training manager. There are also professional qualifications that can help with progression such as our housekeeping and maid training programmes.

Some housekeepers become self-employed and run their own small hotels for example

There are many other opportunities available as well of course and you can get intern-ship or work experience via us also if you do well
