Bil­lion­aire hires 12 to help daugh­ter study at UK var­sity

Financial Chronicle - - PLAN, POLICY - ADITI KHANNA

THE daugh­ter of an In­dian bil­lion­aire has been dubbed the “posh­est” stu­dent in the UK af­ter it was claimed that her fam­ily is hir­ing 12 staff mem­bers to help her dur­ing her stud­ies at a Scot­tish univer­sity.

The first-year stu­dent at the Univer­sity of St An­drew on the east coast of Scot­land will have a house man­ager, three house­keep­ers, a gar­dener, a lady’s maid and a but­ler on hand to help her, along with three foot­men, a pri­vate chef and chauf­feur, The Sun re­ported.

They will be em­ployed at the fam­ily’s new lux­u­ri­ous man­sion, bought so that the daugh­ter won’t have to stay in gen­eral stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion dur­ing the 4 years she spends study­ing at the lead­ing Scot­tish univer­sity.

An ad­vert was placed a few months ago look­ing for “an out­go­ing, cheer­ful” maid with an en­er­getic per­son­al­ity to work within the house­hold. Ac­cord­ing to the ad­vert, the maid would be in charge of “wak­ing prin­ci­pal up, li­ais­ing with other staff re­gard­ing rou­tine and sched­ule (and) as­sist­ing with grooming.”

The staff will also be re­spon­si­ble for wardrobe man­age­ment and per­sonal shop­ping, the job re­quire­ment posted by re­cruit­ment agency Sil­ver Swan said.

The but­ler will be in charge of the stu­dent’s staff, who will be ex­pected to open doors for her when­ever pos­si­ble, and foot­men will serve meals, lay the ta­ble and clean.

The “ul­tra high net worth fam­ily” are de­scribed as very for­mal who want ex­pe­ri­enced staff, the ad­vert notes in ref­er­ence to the var­i­ous roles on of­fer, which are said to pay around 30,000 pounds a year.
