Do I need this training?

Well, Training at the front end of any career, and ongoing until the day we retire, is a given for butlers and household or estate(s) managers today.

Of course, back in the old days, the only house management and butler training route was on-the-job training. Also, apprenticeship that was hands-on heavy, light on theory, and limited in scope. Then, the methods were focused manual skills and not much in the way of managerial expertise.

Needless to say, the advantages of training with us are many.

Impressively, we include:

  • working with peers
  • face-to-face tutorials
  • field trips
  • and often, placement efforts upon graduation.

The other route to take, perhaps more in tune with the digital world in which we live, is online courses. Impressively, we offer live one-on-one courses online for you.

The benefit with a house manager online course is that the fee is a lot lower than that of residential training for example. We offer training from 400GBP plus VAT per day online.

Considered the best of the best!

An independent survey on linked in was conducted recently into preferred training methods, which is well worth reviewing. Interestingly, key points established were:

  • First of all, only about 50% of people feel they have the learning opportunities they need in their work;
  • Also, people like to learn at home more than anywhere else;
  • Furthermore, if they have a choice between learning on computers, tablets, mobile phones or reading a printed document, they pick a computer.
  • Uniquely, the preferred duration for learning is 16-30 minutes, by a very large margin;
  • Last but not least, learning opportunities are critical to job satisfaction.

Furthermore, according to the survey results, people most desire self-paced learning and to put information into practice immediately. Also, anyone who has done any of the House Manager training courses offered by us, knows that’s exactly the way our training was conducted.

Private Household training – testimonials

“The housekeeper course was a thorough introduction to the basic and essential skills of a housekeeper and butler. The domestic staff training course delivery was relaxed and friendly and no prior knowledge was needed. This made the learning process easier and less scary. There was plenty of time to ask questions. I always got a useful response even to trivial questions. The most valuable parts of the course were the opportunity to learn from domestic staff experts. They had worked to the highest standard and in V VIP households. We got to learn the secrets of the trade that would not be found in a book.  We would recommend this course to anyone wanting to go into domestic service for the first time. It is also suitable for experienced staff. “

Adam and Greta G. March 2014

There is no other domestic staff/butler and housekeeper training program quite like The Bespoke Bureau’s.  I was so happy to find one company that could organize all the training I needed:

  • Service.
  • Management.
  • Housekeeping.
  • Etiquette.
  • Wine Knowledge.

Having opted for bespoke training I found the one-on-one attention invaluable for me as I had the tutors’ full attention at all times. I could focus on the subjects I needed to work on. I was very satisfied with the way the training was carried out. I left The Bespoke Bureau Butler Training with a boost to my confidence and great motivation.

Thank you

After my training I have the knowledge, tools and confidence to run the interior of a large yacht or a VIP household.  I also have a new understanding of how to carry myself at interviews and in social situations. This I believe is something I will benefit from for the rest of my life. The tutors were so welcoming and helpful. It was a great privilege for me to get to spend time with them and take advantage of their vast experience and knowledge.I would like to extend a big thank you to everyone at The Bespoke Bureau Butler Training and I would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone looking to improve their skills as a housekeeper or Butler.VIP Private Household Client trainee, 2014

We have long been of the view that the success of any yacht– charter or private – ultimately depends on the quality of the crew. We have identified a need for advanced training of our service staff that is of an unusually high standard. We needed a variety of training resources ranging from:

  • finishing schools.
  • consultancy.
  • silver service training.
  • yacht training.
  • interior training.
  • wine and champagne service.
  • Russian service.
  • VIP housekeeping.

Bespoke Bureau carried out a range of domestic staff training courses for us. They were ranging from advanced laundry and interior cleaning / fabric care, to etiquette and service tuition for all yacht staff. We found the services offered by Bespoke Bureau to be a complete success with our clients. In some cases immediately appreciated by our private owners. We now offer Bespoke’s training to all our clients as a matter of course. We wholeheartedly endorse The bespoke Bureau.

household staffing guide

Its very easy to get confused over the domestic staff roles. Most domestic staff  roles are now a combination of several roles. Unlike in the past when people could afford to hire one person for each role. The most typical combinations of domestic staff are to mix House managers, Butlers, PA’s, Nannies, Drivers and Chefs. Gone are the days when people hired one staff for each role.
