We understand the importance of recruiting the right domestic household staff first time. Our process is thorough with that personal touch to ensure a smooth and successful placement. We operate on word of mouth, all our clients have been recommended.
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 private house staff within a household will, therefore, vary house to house.
You must offer an appropriate level of service for the family, this may be an extremely discreet and invisible service for a family who do not wish to interact with their staff or it may be 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.
We recruit for a number of different exclusive private estate jobs and private home jobs ranging from House Managers to Butlers, to Housekeepers, Gardeners, Nanny and Security. We offer a personal yet professional service going above and beyond to ensure a successful placement is made every time.
