Whatever your requirements I enjoy working with you providing a bespoke service to find the best fit for my unique client’s needs and seeking domestic couple teams equipped with the skills and qualities to stay with you happily and settled for a long time
Domestic couple team positions generally fall into two categories. In the first group, both members of the team carry out the majority of their work within the house and their duties may include any of the following: house manager, butler, valet, houseman, caretaker, family chauffeur, handyman, head housekeeper, housekeeper, cook, nanny.

The second group generally has one member of the team spending a good deal of time outside the house - estate management, gardening, maintenance and family driving - as well as helping in the house with heavier tasks. The second member usually provides support in hands on housekeeping and laundry or oversees house management . In some cases Perhaps requiring a qualified chef or cook.

We require all our domestic couple teams to have proven experience of working in a private household. They provide a full work history photographs and written references. I personally interview every couple and investigate their backgrounds and can ask detailed questions about their skills, examine their qualifications and, in the case of gardeners and chefs, view menus and photographs of their work.

IN March 2018 the salary survey showed most couples are earning £750npw minimum with some highly skilled couples earning up to £900npw. Accommodation all found is typically provided and sometimes use of a car.

I am happy to visit you at your home or schedule a telephone call and take all of your requirements.
