Domestic Bliss Appointments is the premier recruitment agency for elite private households, country estates and yachts.   We are the London agency that will come to you.

We offer expert advice and support founded on genuine commitment and knowledge. We consistently demonstrate understanding and appreciation of all the benefits of recruiting the “right” staff and potential pitfalls of recruiting the “wrong” staff! With 25 years of practical, hands- on experience in many areas of private household and yacht service, Domestic Bliss is the industry leader.

We aim to nurture longevity and stability in our placements.  This can only be achieved through suitable matches and respectful partnerships.  A happy household is dependent on efficiency, capability, trust and morale.
