Our comprehensive training prepares our graduates to pursue their dream careers in the service industry.

Internships TIBA

During your 10-week training program, you will find several recent graduates at TIBA called “interns.” They have an important role to play. You can watch them as they work closely with the Academy's faculty to continue developing and refining their skills. They are also at TIBA to help you. They have graduated from the training and therefore have had the same struggles and challenges you will have. They know the process and will help to support you; however, they will not do the work for you.

If you wish, and depending on your final grade, you may continue your education after graduation. We will allow you to stay at The International Butler Academy for 3 to 4 months as an Intern. You will be working under the guidance of our CEO, Executive Head Butler, and support staff. Not only will you have the opportunity to put into practice the things you learned at TIBA, but you will also receive an official Reference Letter celebrating your internship.

Internships TIBA China

China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 has propelled its economy to remarkable heights. This growth has sparked a surge in demand for butlers among the country's affluent business elite and super-rich individuals, primarily driven by the flourishing high-end hotel and luxury real estate sectors. China has now emerged as the world's fastest-growing market for butlers.

Once you finish your 10-week training in The Netherlands, you may apply to continue your education at our school in Chengdu (Sichuan), China. After completing the training at our school in The Netherlands, you may apply for the opportunity to stay in China for another six months on an official internship. We take care of your room & board plus all travel expenses. You will also receive a full salary.

Career consulting services

Recruitment knowledge and interviewing skills are part of our training program. We work with each student to assist him or her in developing a focused and well-targeted Résumé, as well as job search strategies that will increase their job opportunities upon graduation. We will teach you how to prepare yourself for a successful job interview in the best possible way. This service will open up many doors to domestic management positions for you. Throughout the training program, a personal marketing document called the Graduate Profile Binder is prepared for and with each student for recruitment purposes. This marketing material is distributed to our partner placement agencies and targeted luxury international residential and hospitality clients.

Upon successful graduation, you receive a handcrafted and beautifully framed Diploma, with the original document emailed to you as a PDF document. This valuable document proves that you are a certified professional butler, personal assistant, and estate or household manager. We are the only school of its kind to train private service professionals and reach out to outside placement agencies so that student opportunities for employment upon graduation are maximized. We want you to secure a rewarding position through our recruitment division or that of another company. The International Butler Academy records all numbered and certified Academy graduates and their internationally recognized Diplomas.


Other Internship Opportunities

We have other internship opportunities available. When the time comes after graduation, you will have a conversation with our Recruitment Consultants, and they will ask about your wishes and interests. They will do their very best to support you, as will we. Here are some available internships:

  • Hotel De L:'Europe - arguably the finest hotel in The Netherlands. Interns work under the direct supervision of the hotel's Head Butler, Mr. Roberto Brennickmeijer. One of our finest Field Trips is to this hotel.
  • Little Grand - a small but exquisite long-stay Hotel where at the end of each training program, one successful Graduate will have the chance to learn the trade from the Head Butler, Mr. Marcel van Wessel.
  • Hotel TwentySeven - this premier luxury hotel will give one hardworking Graduate the opportunity of a lifetime to be part of their existing Butler team.
  • Pepper Collection - one successful Graduate will be allowed to be a Chalet Butler in the scenic Arlberg region of Austria.

We also have internships available in private homes in The Netherlands, as well as in other countries. However, no further information as such is provided on our website.
