The Institute has completed the industry-wide effort to standardize the definitions in private service. You can access them here.
The Institute is contacted on a regular basis for help in sourcing candidates for Butler positions in private homes and in various exclusive hotels, retreats, spas, guest villas, and other venues that provide focused luxury services to their guests.
As a result of this growing demand, the Institute has recently added placement worldwide as its newest service. If you have a personnel request, we will strive to assist you in filling that position—drawing on resources from our database of IIMB members and affiliated service professionals around the world.
Unlike most personnel agencies, we can also help with training new and existing personnel to your standards. We know that in this day and age, “a good employee is hard to find.” But we feel strongly that they can be molded, with personal training and counseling, into employees that come much closer to your own ideal and who may, in time, even grow into that “perfect” employee you’ve been dreaming of.
We invite you to contact the Institute
Please include the following information:
- Where you are geographically and where the employee’s base would be.
- The type (and title) of the prospective employee.
- Whether the position would be ‘live-in’ or ‘live-out’.
- Envisioned salary range.
- A list of general duties.
- Any special requirements.
On receipt of your request, one of our staff will contact you by phone or email, for a more detailed consultation. The first step of our collaboration will be to work with you to flesh out a job description based on your exact needs and wants, which will help us to find that “perfect fit.”
ADVERTISE YOUR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
We continue to post positions needing to be filled on our Placement Assistance page from employers or agencies offering employment opportunities for butlers. If you do not need our assistance with your search but would like to reach the many professionals that visit our website with your current job offer this may be the solution for you. For this service we offer no candidate referrals or guarantees and advise that the candidate selection process is solely between the advertiser and the candidate(s) who respond.
Employers and agencies are assessed a small fee of $25 per advertisement, which will be posted for 4 weeks.
NOTE: Of course if you are using the Institute’s services to help you find a suitable candidate, we will list your position for free (if desired).

“The recruiting and placement of Estate Management couples in our Ohio and Florida residences, and the training seminars with these couples, have been invaluable. The usually taxing regimen of the hiring process was lessened by the skills Mr. Ferry displayed in vetting applicants. All of the applicants he referred to us were highly qualified, but his opinions and observations about our final choices were insightful and ‘on the money.’ The present couples referred by him to the Akron and Florida residences are unequivocally the best we have ever employed.” RMH
