As the economy begins to rebound, demand for housekeeping help is start to increase worldwide.
According to the Guild of Professional English Butlers, a slew of newly minted millionaires has helped employment for English butlers grow by 20% over the past year. However, it does appear that stateside, there is also a spike in demand for domestic professionals who have an array of qualifications on their resume.
We believe very strongly that butlers should have proficiency in doing every job within a household, Charles MacPherson, president of Charles MacPherson Associates, a top training center for household management, noted. MacPherson said an “extraordinary” butler can look forward to a long career and make a base salary of more than $100,000 per year. He said he is also starting to see a big demand in household help with technology skillsTo be successful, the butler of today must absolutely be tech savvy, MacPherson added. “They should have some foundational understanding of smart-home technology that allows them to operate and, just as importantly, explain how to operate the various smart systems within a home.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment opportunities for maids and housekeeping cleaners are expected to increase by 8% through the end of the decade.
