Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.” Margaret Thatcher

Do you know why you should consider a female butler? Although our television screens are still showing us the very classic butler roles, much has changed since then. New money and modern times simply require a new outlook on private/domestic staff. And the private staff industry has been adapting with modern-day requirements. The more classically set roles of butlers, housekeepers, and ladies maids are getting combined and altered. And wonderful combination roles have started to develop.

A great example of that is the female butler. Traditionally butlers would be male, housekeepers and ladies’ maids would be female. But the female butler has steadily been making its way up in the popularity ranks. And this highly versatile role is now a much sought-after member of staff.

Besides excellent house management skills, these ladies can come with an array of other qualities. Why you should consider hiring a female butler? Have a look at the reasons listed below and decide for yourself.

Why You Should Consider A Female Butler: Confidant / Companion

The qualities of a female butler in this aspect can be compared to the more traditional Ladies’ Maid. Many female butlers work closely with Madame.

Meaning your Female Butler will understand your needs sometimes even before you do.

A Female Butler As Fashion/Style expert

With very diverse backgrounds, there are great female butlers who have a background and connections in fashion and design.

Female-only Households

Such as security and chauffeuring. Many female butlers are also excellent at managing staff, organising events, and managing household projects such as refurbishments.

A female butler can bring that extra edge you’re looking for. With backgrounds and qualifications in childcare, these versatile women will understand the needs of (new) families.
