Britain's poshest student: Indian billionaire's daughter is hiring a staff of 12 to get her through university
An Indian billionaire's daughter is reportedly hiring at least 12 staff to help her get through university in Scotland. According to reports, the staff includes a butler, maid, three footmen and a housekeeper!
Reports state that the student, who has not been identified, has bought a mansion to live in, instead of getting an accomodation in the halls of residence. She is set to join University of St Andrews in Scotland and her family is reportedly preparing to hire the staff in an attempt to ease her into her freshers' week this week and throughout her four years' term at the institution.
Along with a Lady's maid, the student will also have a private chef and a chauffeur to take her to her lectures and the student union from the mansion, according to the Sun's reports.
An advertisement for a maid had reportedly been placed earlier this summer by the woman's family, asking for a help with "an outgoing, cheerful and energetic personality." The advert stated that the maid would be responsible for "waking principal up, liaising with other staff regarding routine and schedule, assisting with grooming, wardrobe management and personal shopping”.
While the butler will oversee the entire team and the footmen will be responsible for serving all meals daily, laying the table and keeping the house clean, reports state.
The advertisement also added that the entire staff will also be required to open doors for the student "whenever possible." Reports state that the ads for the mansion staff were posted through Silver Swan recruitment agency, which assists in recruiting staff for luxury chalets, villas, yachts and private households.
The ads also stated that the staff will be paid nearly £30,000 per year and added that family wants experienced staff because they are "very formal."
