Mr. Edmons E. Alters
My understanding of superlative service was gained during the time when I studied at The International Institute of Modern Butlers, and I have already had a chance to apply many of my skills at some of the most luxurious hotels and five-star hospitality venues in London, where I worked in junior service positions. I am also certified by The British Butler Institute.
Being a reliable, responsible, hardworking, and enthusiastic young person seeking long-term employment in private service as a butler, I envision myself as a right hand man of my future principal.
Good knowledge of table service and valeting are definitely my strong points; however, I am confident in undertaking a large variety of other household duties, such as cleaning, light (and more complicated) cooking, pet care, and handyman duties. I have good driving skills.
Fluent in English, with Russian as my mother tongue, I have conversational language skills in French, too.
My on-going priority is self-development in the field, so I never miss a chance to learn something new through professional experience or further vocational training. I dedicate my free time to advancing my French and a BA in Hospitality and Tourism.
I invite you to contact the Institute (enquiries @ modernbutlers.com) if you would like to reach me.
