How to become a butler?

The path to becoming a butler traditionally involved starting as a low-level servant in a household and working diligently and reliably for many years. Eventually, the family might promote the individual to an assistant or under-butler position, where they would be given additional responsibilities. Through continued dedication and outstanding service, the individual may then be promoted to the highest rank of butler within the household.

What does a Butler earn?

The salary for a butler can vary greatly depending on the location of their employment. For example, a butler working and living in New York City will likely have a much different salary than one working and living in rural England. Other factors that can affect salary include taxes, inclusions, and whether the butler is living on the estate or nearby in their own lodgings. On average, a butler can expect to earn between 40k and 75k euros net annually, but it's important to note that this number can increase significantly with experience and additional training.

Tasks of a Butler?

A Butler has one primary responsibility, their principal's comfort, and well-being. To achieve this, a Butler may be called upon to do almost anything and everything to be of service. Whether cleaning the house, cooking some meals, preparing for parties, writing Thank You letters, or walking the dog, the tasks of a Butler are boundless. If you were to ask ten different Butlers, you would most likely get ten different answers, and all would be right. From polishing the silver and serving the meals to preparing the wardrobe and managing the staff to taking care of the garden and seeing to the pets, a Butler may do it all.
