The Swiss Butler Service offers extensive training for teams who serve the most demanding principals.


Our butler- and household management trainings always take place directly at the workplace and thus the daily processes can be trained to perfection.


This results in significant added value for principals and employees alike.

On the Job

Both employers and employees appreciate our on-the-job training, as it offers numerous advantages over training at a butler school.

• The employees remain on site and can be involved in the operational processes if required. A significant advantage, especially for small and medium-sized households.

• The work processes can be evaluated directly and objectively for possible improvements and adjusted immediately. This has a motivating effect on everyone involved.

• Additional costs for travel, accommodation and a deputy of the employee can be saved and invested directly in the training.

• On-the-job training is more flexible as it is not tied to a the schedule of a butler school.

«Professionally trained employees are the key element for smoothly functioning private households. With our on-the-job program, training content can be applied directly in the daily work environment. A real added value.»
