WHAT TO EXPECT WORKING IN A PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD
The Private Household industry can offer a very rewarding and lucrative career, however, it’s not always easy. You are becoming a trusted part of a family’s life and each and every family is different. Your role as a member of staff within a household will, therefore, vary house to house.
You must offer an appropriate level of service for your family, this may be an extremely discreet and invisible service for a family who do not wish to interact with their staff or it maybe a familiar and friendly service for those less formal households. You will be required to adapt your working style accordingly. Flexibility is essential within this industry along with professionalism and trust. You should be looking for longevity in each of your positions and securing solid references is essential to secure your next role.
We recruit a number of different exclusive private estate jobs and private household positions ranging from House Managers to Butlers, to Housekeepers, Gardeners, Nanny and Security.
