Are You a Very English Butler? The U.K. Government Needs You

LONDON — Of the current vacancies in the British government’s hundreds of job listings for policy and strategy advisers, one stands out. Wanted: two butlers.

Duties include delivering “the highest quality V.I.P. hospitality for all government departments and ministers” and managing the government’s wine cellar.

Maximum annual salary: 30,000 pounds (not quite $40,000).

Only British nationals need apply, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which advertised the roles.
