About Us

Alison O'Neill


At SILKS we have a small, but dedicated team, with one simple goal – to find the perfect solution for your domestic needs. It may be that you need a new employee, help with wardrobe management, or a team to manage an event; whatever support you are looking for, Amanda and Alison will help you find the ideal people to provide it.

Sourcing candidates is the easy part, what takes skill is matching the right person with the right role and this is a very personal task for the duo. From housekeepers to estate managers, from butlers to PAs, they interview each candidate as if selecting them for their own home:

“It is a given that all of the people we employ are of the highest standard and have impeccable references. Yet we insist on something extra. Likeability coupled with the utmost professionalism. We call this the elegance factor.”

“As well as providing a unique service, we see the business as an ongoing relationship on a very personal level. We strive to provide for our clientele’s diverse requirements. Every home is different, every family unique.”

This ethos has served the co-founders well, with their reputation for success in placing private staff providing the repeat business and client recommendations that have seen them grow from strength to strength in this competitive industry.

If you would like us to visit you in your home to discuss your requirements, please email us at info@silksluxurylifestyle.co.uk or fill out this short form and a member of the team will be in touch.
