Are you tired of your 9 to 5, working in an office in a grey, dreary city centre? If this sounds like you then it is likely that your mind has wandered to considering what other jobs you could be spending your precious time doing.

For many, a lifestyle filled with luxuries is a big desire and one way of achieving this is to work in the luxury sector, therefore immersing yourself in a more high-end world. Working in the luxury sector is a dream that comes with images of working with celebrities, earning a fortune, and being decked out in designer goods. While this may not be entirely attainable in every case, there are many cases where you can live your best luxury life, while earning a decent salary. Here are just a few ideas that you may not have previously considered.

The yachting life

Working on a luxury superyacht can be hard work, but if you work your way up the pecking order, it can also be an incredible experience. There are over 13,000 superyachts globally, all over 24 metres in length. They sail the seven seas (or mainly the Caribbean and Mediterranean), taking the rich and famous wherever they desire, including film festivals, exclusive parties, and desert islands.

Those working as head stewards or captains on these vessels sure have a lot of stories to tell. Imagine going to work every day, a few kilometres off the shore of paradise and being in the company of supermodels, pop stars, and even well-known political figures.

But it is a job that requires lots of qualifications, long hours, and a commitment to discretion, of course. Yacht employees are entrusted with the safety, comfort, and privacy of all guests, whoever they are. They must also remain professional at all times, upholding the prestige of the vessel and the reputation of the owner or person chartering it. In addition, it is necessary to be perfectly groomed and employees must also ensure they are impeccably turned out in their uniform and away from the vessel during their downtime.

A roulette dealer

Working as a roulette dealer can be highly glamorous if you pick the right place. Roulette is one of those games that has been associated with glamour, style and luxury for as long as it has been around. Croupiers, as they are officially known, must also exude glamour. They must be dressed stylishly and classically with perfectly coiffed hair, no visible tattoos or piercings, and an emphasis on understated chic. Yes, the hours can be long and unsociable as casinos come alive at night, but it is worth it.

As a dealer, you get to enjoy the thrill of the casino at all times while playing roulette, without spending a cent. You can benefit from the energy of the other players on the casino floor and get caught up in the unpredictable nature of every spin of the wheel. It is also the perfect job to meet exciting and wealthy characters who visit the world’s top casinos. You should aim for a career in one of the most exclusive resorts to benefit from the maximum glitz that comes with the role.

A personal concierge is an individual that caters to the whims of the rich, famous, and infamous. Their role is to connect their client with all the fun events happening in any given place at any given time. For example, getting reservations at the hottest restaurants and bars, front row tickets to shows and concerts, and invites to the best parties are just some of the things required of the job. In addition, you could be responsible for getting onto waiting lists (or skipping them altogether) for designer goods or the most wanted beauty products. A personal concierge’s job is to make the client’s life as exciting as possible with as minimal effort on their behalf.

Concierges are often used by exclusive individuals when they travel to a new city or country, allowing them to hook up with what is happening. This is an excellent job for those that love celebrities or crave the ultimate luxury life. You will get to rub shoulders with celebrity clients, and you may also be able to bag yourself leftover tickets or exclusives if you play your cards right. It gives you a window into the elite’s world and allows you to feel like a part of it every single day.

Most of these jobs, and others in the luxury sector, require qualifications, specific skill sets and, of course, experience, so don’t quit your day job just yet. If you have your eye on any of these jobs, you will need to prepare yourself through education, courses, and plenty of networking. But why not take the plunge? Start taking steps today to prepare a new future for yourself with the job of your dreams.
