Student seeks staff to help her through university

The daughter of an Indian billionaire is recruiting for 12 staff to help her through university.

She will also have a private chef and a chauffeur to take her to lectures and the student union at St Andrews in Scotland.

While the butler will oversee the team, the footmen will be responsible for serving all meals daily, laying the table and keeping the house clean. They will also be required to open doors for the student “wherever possible”, according to the ad.

When approached for comment, Silver Swan Recruitment told Recruiter they do not comment on their clients.
