Butler for the rich-Bespoke Bureau in the press again

Butler for the rich-Bespoke Bureau in the press again

We spoke to the evening standard again about Butler for the rich

’Sara Vestin Rahmani, director of the Bespoke Bureau, an elite domestic placement and training agency for Royals, celebrities and VIPs, tells me that the most unusual task one of her employees has faced was ‘having to source two nannies for a pair of meerkat babies’. Sara Vestin Rahmani has a star butler for the rich, 37-year-old Adam Dillon, recalls: ‘I had to locate a specific type of fine bone china for a dinner party for a friend of my principal who would not dine without it. We got there in the end, but it was horrific looking, cost a fortune, and we never used it again. Still, my lady said it was worth it.’

Butler for the rich

Hannah Betts also speaks to one of the Bespoke Bureau Butler for the rich

Dillon earns £90,000 a year, having worked his way up to head of household for a famous British family. ‘I care for my principal’s personal things — clothes, travel, bookings, reservations, fashion, shopping — and make sure she is always hydrated, vegetable juice to hand, looking pristine. I’m on call 24/7, but I get summers off to see my family, plus private jet travel, my own flat, and bonuses. I love the people I work for, but it is super-hard work. They are fair, but not generous, and they expect an awful lot — sometimes too much.’

High earning butlers

The Times
14th December 2014

High Earning Butlers

The times speak to Sara Vestin Rahmani about her high earning butlers, the British Butler Academy and how the times have changed for butlers.

“It is sometimes said that butlers only truly exist in England,” Kazuo Ishiguro once wrote. An Englishman’s capacity for emotional restraint means that “when you think of a great butler, he is bound, almost by definition, to be an Englishman”, Ishiguro’s character Stevens added, in The Remains of the Day. From Beijing to Rio de Janeiro this seems, increasingly, to be the case. The global elite are hiring British butlers as status symbols to head households — from Mayfair mansions to superyachts moored in the Mediterranean.

John Simpson-Published at 12:01AM, December 14 20

Why high earning butlers are paid the amounts they are

The article continues with Sara Vestin Rahmani discussing why high earning butlers are worth every penny they are being paid according to the boss of The British Butler Academy. The Academy trains high earning butlers in their London HQ that then go on to other markets or stay in the UK working in top jobs. The British Butler Academy also offers internship programs for people wanting to gain more experience after the training.

Butler Staffing in Saudi Arabia

Butler Staffing in Saudi Arabia

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Provides butler hire for Saudi Arabians

The British style Butler is often in uniform and primarily charged with managing the household staff, reception of guests, serving of refreshments and meals, maintaining the fine silver and china, the valet of the employers clothing and various other duties. The Butler reflects a formal image. Generally duties would not include cooking and cleaning duties other than as trainer or fill in.

 

 

The current perception of the British Butler combines the duties of the Household Manager with a more formal attitude and mindset of the formal Butler. As with the House Manager job definition, there is a wide range in the actual job duties depending on the particular residence and also on the quality, experience and skill of the individual providing Butler service.

Salaries for Butlers for Saudi Arabia

The salaries of Butler for Saudi Arabia can vary greatly. The classic Butler who has executive level management skills, excellent job history and who can portray a wonderful service personality can achieve salaries of £100,000 and up but entry level butlers or under butlers can start at around £30,000 for butler jobs in Saudi

Role of a butler-as important as ever

Role of a butler-as important as ever

Image

Role of a butler-as important as ever. Why?

The majority of people imagine that the role of a butler is an archaic one and one that is now nothing more than a staple of period dramas or the odd comedy show. However, butlers are still very much in demand, and just as important as ever for those with a great deal of money and very little time.

What households seek a butler?

Butlers may seem to be anachronistic, but in fact they are just as relevant today as ever, and whilst it may seem that having a person on hand to do what you want, when you want it, does not fit into modern society, consider the wide use of PAs and you will start to see that a butler is, in essence, very similar.Such household staff may well have to dress in a different way to a personal assistant, but this is simply due to the aesthetics of the buildings in which they work. If a butler was to wear jeans and a t-shirt in the most beautiful homes in the country they would stand out a mile, and just as PAs need to wear suits in a business environment, a butler will be dressed according to where they will be working.

 Image

As such, butlers are not out of place at all, and are needed more than ever in a time when people seem to be busier than ever in all walks of life. The perks will be great and the pay surprisingly high, and those taking such roles will get to spend their days in the lap of luxury, making their roles even more appealing than their business world counterparts. So for those who want to see what it really is like to be a butler and live amongst such wealth and class, joining a household staff agency and jump into the VIP role of a butler could allow you to do just that.

Butlers and their importance

Butlers and their importance

Why Butlers are Just as Important than Ever

butlers

Butlers are valuable household assets

The majority of people imagine that the role of butlers is archaic ones. That he is nothing more than a staple of period dramas or the odd comedy show. However, butlers are still very much in demand, and just as important as ever for those with a great deal of money and very little time.

Butlers and what they are for

Butlers may seem to be anachronistic, but in fact they are just as relevant today as ever. It may seem that having a person on hand to do what you want, when you want it, does not fit into modern society. However, if you consider the wide use of PAs and you will start to see that the butlers work in very similar ways.

Butlers do:

  • butler service
  • table management
  • valeting
  • shoe polishing
  • driving/chauffeuring
  • greeting guests
  • PA work
  • concierge work and much much more
butlers

A charming old fashion profession

Such household staff as butlers may well have to dress in a different way to a personal assistant. However, this is simply due to the aesthetics of the buildings in which they work. If a butler was to wear jeans and a t-shirt in the most beautiful homes in the country they would stand out a mile. A PA need to wear suits in a business environment. A butler will be dressed according to where they will be working.

Who is hiring and how ?

We believe that butlers are not out of place  in society at all. They are needed more than ever in a time when people are getting busier. The rich people are also getting richer. People that hire butlers are: VIPs, HNW individuals, royals and wealthy large home owners. Most household hire butlers from butler agencies such as ours.

Become one of our butlers

The perks when you work as a butler will be great and the pay surprisingly high.  Butlers get to spend their days in the lap of luxury, making their roles even more appealing than their business world counterparts. So for those who want to see what it really is like to be a butler, you can train with our British Butler Academy. Join those who live and work amongst such wealth and class.

Difference Modern and Traditional Butler

Difference modern and Traditional Butler

by Sara Vestin Rahmani

Difference modern and Traditional Butler

Difference between a modern Butler and Traditional Butler

Sara Vestin Rahmani of the famous Bespoke Bureau gives us her input on the Modern Butler VS the Old Style Traditional Butler and how things have changed over the years in the world of butlering. Here she explains the difference modern and Traditional Butler.

“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. He needed to look perfect and follow protocol. I am struggling  to find many parallels between Carson’s role and that of a modern Butler.

Difference modern and Traditional Butler – qualities

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.

Difference between a modern Butler and Traditional Butler

At your service

It is no surprise to me that it is English butlers who are most in demand, and that their clients are mainly from China and Russia. For the new super-rich, an English butler is a status symbol to line up alongside the Swiss banker, French chef, German car manufacturer, and Italian lover. The English are seen as refined, dignified, deferential, reserved, formal when needed. They are 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.

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.

Difference modern and Traditional Butler – the essence

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). He 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.

Difference modern and Traditional Butler – the modern version

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.”
