The Guild of Professional English Butlers

Frances Hutchinson and Robert Watson – the Director of the Guild – have known and respected one another for many years.

Robert, the Senior Trainer and Proprietor of the Guild, has spent his whole career working within the world's most luxurious hotels.

In recent years, with the resurgence of butling service, Robert has set up and trained many of the butlers in the top hotels and private households around the world.

Frances had successfully placed several of the Guild's graduates in a series of high profile positions all over the world. Posts that have varied widely from employer to employer but have included:

A Head Butler/House Manager in the USA for a family who required the successful candidate to run 4 private homes, organizing parties and special events. Based in New York this butler is required to travel extensively.

We have assisted in the provision of a Managerial Butler for a top hotel in Singapore and a Personal Butler/Valet for an hotelier client in South Africa.

A House Manager who was required for the Chairman of an International Bank in London and a travelling Personal Assistant for a prominent Middle Eastern businessman who resides in the USA.

The formation of a more formal relationship between our two companies seemed an obvious one. It is with pride, therefore, that Hutchinsons accept the Guild's most highly recommended trainees on to our books. We also care for the Guild's clients who seek top calibre butlers.
