Recruiting Private Household Staff

Private Household Staff

Although we can offer all aspects of support and services for HNWI and companies, recruiting private household staff is still at the heart of what we do at SILKS Luxury Lifestyle Specialists. Formerly known as Surrey Housekeepers, we have over a decade of experience as a housekeeping agency. We have now evolved into a leading private staff recruitment agency, and we can now extend our services across the breath of the UK. We can source a full spectrum of domestic help from housekeepers, cooks and nannies, through to chauffeurs and estate managers.

Do I need to use an agency?

There are self-service online platforms available that allow you to appoint your own housekeepers or staff, or you may feel that you can recruit without any outside service at all. However, recruiting staff for your home can be a challenge, especially if you are new to employing members of staff, and there are a number of benefits and reasons to use a housekeeping agency!

The benefits of using a housekeeping agency:

  • Access to the best Private Household Staff across the UK
  • Carry out enhanced DBS checks for all candidates
  • Thoroughly validate previous employee references
  • Provide contracts for both parties including NDA’s where required
  • Our contracts include a one month probationary period as standard
  • Provide advice on Tax, Holidays Pay, National Insurance etc.

Once you have employed a member of staff through SILKS Luxury Lifestyle Specialists, we are able to share our extended partner offers with you.  If you would like to speak to a member of the team about our partner offers, or to discuss hiring private domestic staff, please contact us here.
