Taking care of a luxury property.


The Butler Bureau in Austria is advertising employment to a German-speaking couple to look after "an important property" in Majorca.

Unlike a recent similar advert for a luxury property in Ibiza, this one doesn't specify a salary, but it points out that this will be stable, long-term employment with a separate house as accommodation.

Experience is naturally required for the various tasks. For the woman, these will include cleaning, preparation of meals, shopping, laundry. For the man, they will be maintenance and small repairs, some gardening, supervising professional workers (if this is necessary) and maintenance of an extensive and high-quality fleet of vehicles (both cars and motorcycles).

Unbelieveably sexist advert. Why are the jobs specified for male/female.? This is like something out of the 1800's! Who would want to work for an employer with that mindset?

My wife and I have owned high end property which we have managed over the past 12 years. We are currently living in Mallorca with a view to settling permanently. We can supply you with a detailed CV and references should you be interested. BR Mike

Why report on this at all? Obviously there are no super yachts to eulogise about at the moment. But reporting on ( sexist - and you don’t even comment on it ) job adverts is plummeting new lows.

The request sounds sexist and discriminatory to me. Why are the skills divided by male and female?
