We recruit for roles across the private household sector:
Teamwork is the by-word for a household’s management couple. They organise your schedules, travel, and key events. They might also oversee your household supplies, budgets and correspondence.
Planning and coordinating a busy modern family, your household manager can help you balance the demands of your professional career or successful business with a happy home life.
This is a key role, making sure your estate buildings are well maintained, your land and livestock are well-managed, and your staff and essential support services deliver excellence.
As well as being your administrative mainstay, your personal assistant might also help you with all the family and social arrangements that are so important to every-day life.
Keeping everything to your high standards of cleanliness is your housekeeper’s top priority. They might also manage laundry, groceries, pet care and security for example.
Managing and maintaining your lawns, borders, kitchen gardens and glasshouses make the role of gardener varied and interesting. Often, they will also manage other grounds staff and help to organise events.
From meeting everyone’s dietary requirements to organising and creating outstanding cuisine for your social events, your chef is pivotal to the day-to-day running of your household.
Discreet, dependable, organised and flexible; your chauffeur will maintain your vehicles and coordinate with your other household staff to make sure your itinerary is efficient and problem-free.
