Placement Assistance

From time to time, employers ask the Institute to assist in finding personnel for their households and estates, or butlers for hospitality venues. We are not an agency, but have endeavored to find the right matches for employers we can endorse.

If you are a service professional, whether in the private service or hospitality industry, and are looking for a new position, please email  enquiries at modernbutlers.com with your resume/CV, including a professional photograph and a clear statement of your objectives.

In your email, please include the following information:

  • What type of position are you looking for?
  • Are you willing to move to a different location?
  • Are you willing to travel?
  • When are you available?
  • What remuneration package, including salary, are you seeking?

You will be contacted by one of the Institute’s staff members to clarify any points and questions we may have, so as to ensure we have a clear picture of exactly what you are looking for before we add you to our database. This will help us find that “perfect match” we all aim for.

“I am completing staff appraisals for the year and thought of you and the time I started here … in June of last year. It was thanks to you that I found this position as Chief of Staff in a very challenging and interesting role. I don’t do my own appraisal, although I guess after 1.5 years on the job I must be doing fine, otherwise I wouldn’t be here still.”

Whenever a job opportunity arises that we think may be a fit, we will contact you directly to enquire as to your interest and current availability. See below for any current opportunities:
