Trainee Butler

Master of the Household’s Office
Buckingham Palace
Full time, 5 days out of 7, Monday to Sunday.

It's providing the service that leaves a lasting impression.

It's being encouraged to gain new skills. And it's delivering extraordinary service in incredible surroundings. That is what a career with the Royal Household means.

The Master of the Household's Department handles everything involved in the official and private entertaining across all the Royal residences.

Joining our talented team, you'll provide a hospitality service to an exceptional standard, both front-of-house and behind-the-scenes.

You'll prepare for and support functions of all scales. Whether it's a morning coffee tray, a small lunch or a state banquet, every day you'll grow and develop your hospitality expertise.

Preparations back-of-house will be a big part of your role. You'll make sure every item of glass, china, silver or gilt is cared for and presented to perfection, whilst gaining specialist skills along the way.

And front-of-house, you'll welcome and take care of guests, colleagues and Members of the Royal Family.

You'll be proud to play your part in the daily running of a working household, as well as supporting some truly spectacular events.

In an environment where development and training is commonplace, you'll be supported to achieve an accredited Butlering qualification too.

You'll work and live in stunning historic settings, and you'll challenge yourself to deliver to the highest standard every day. And all this will provide you with an exceptional start to your career.

Previous hospitality experience is not essential, but you will need to be committed to developing a career in the industry.

It'll be hard work and there will be a lot to learn, but you'll be supported every step of the way. You'll therefore need a proactive approach, a desire to learn and eagerness to tackle new challenges.

You'll have outstanding team working and time management skills, and you'll understand the need for these in delivering an overall smooth and efficient service.

Polite, friendly and approachable to all, you can naturally adapt your communication style to suit different situations.

With an eye for detail, you aim for and achieve the highest standards in all that you do.

Above all, you're looking for that first step on your way to an exceptional hospitality career.
