The butler role is incredibly varied and exact requirements depend on the needs of each private household. Responsibilities are varied and far-reaching, but can include silver service; valet; care of silver and fine china; wardrobe management; travel packing; meeting and greeting of residents and guests; training and management of other staff; driving and in some cases, travelling with the principal and their family.
A butler may be male or female, and will possess excellent communication skills and a positive attitude to a demanding workload.
