BUTLER / 2nd STEWARD – 71M NEW BUILD YACHT
Essential Skills: Previous private yacht experience, expert butler and valeting skills, team management skills, organised, flexible.
START DATE: NOV 2021
A permanent position onboard a 71 metre privately owned yacht for a Butler/ Deputy Head of Interior. The yacht is currently in build and will be launched in early 2022.
Cruising is currently planned for the Mediterranean during 2022 and the Caribbean during 2022/2023. Thereafter, cruising schedules are to be arranged. The yacht will be able to accommodate 12 guests, including the Owners and their family.
The Owner has an exceptional global reputation and expects a very high standard of service at all times. The-best-of-the best. He is seeking a long-term professional relationship and is known to expect complete dedication and commitment.
We therefore seek an experienced person with expert skills in all butler and valeting duties. Formal butler training is preferred. You will be knowledgeable in etiquette and protocol and have experience in the delivery of a discreet, confidential and unobtrusive service.
The yacht will house a collection of fine art, antiques and objects d’art and it is therefore imperative that the successful candidate be fully conversant in the care of these artefacts, fine silver, crystal, china, cigars and wine.
The candidate will act as Deputy to the Chief Stewardess (Head of Interior) and, when required, lead the service team on board this magnificent yacht. Exceptional organisational and team management skills are essential.
In addition, you may be required to assist the Chief Stewardess / Purser to maintain budgets, inventories, stock control records, deal with provisioning and, when required, deputise responsibility for the interior management of this remarkable yacht.
We seek a co-operative team player, somebody who is able to train junior staff and who takes pleasure in teaching by example with professionalism so that crew members with lesser skills can, with the correct assistance and encouragement, come to the forefront and shine.
There is no room on this yacht for big egos or any form of disruptive mannerism. A team orientated mind set, cooperative nature and a can-do attitude are a must.
Compliance with a team structure and the captain’s command, together with an ability to cooperate and complement the Chief Stewardess and Head Chef is fundamental, as is an ability to work alongside other crew members.
Our Captain is highly thought of in the yachting industry and will be bringing with him to the vessel an established team with which he has worked successfully for up to 15 years. The successful candidate will need to integrate seamlessly with the team on board.
Negotiable salary package depending on experience and background of the successful applicant, but circa EU 6,000 per month. (HU3779)
