Our Bespoke Bureau housekeepers are very experienced, dedicated and child friendly. Furthermore our housemaids and housekeepers have a wealth of experience in caring for large affluent homes. Housekeepers that we have on our books are more than capable of taking charge of the household laundry and ironing to an immaculate standard. Our housekeepers are also keen cooks and they are very happy to cook an evening meal or hot breakfast for the family.
Naturally, a house manager is always impeccably dressed as suits the occasion. As a house manager in a stately home, you should carry items around the house on a small silver tray and walk at a sedate pace. On the other hand, a fast moving employer won`t appreciate his house manager to be at a pace that would appeal to a turtle. A house manager should be aware that each house and employer will be different in its needs.
As a leading domestic staff agency we specialise in supplying professional domestic couples for county estates in the UK, France and Spain. Our domestic staff agency provides candidates that are capable of managing sophisticated homes. An excellent knowledge of housekeeping, arranging flowers, clothes and pressing can be expected from domestic staff placed through our domestic staff agency.
Household Staff have many titles, roles, and functions within the employer’s home. They include every task from washing dishes to coordinating the purchase, remodel, and decoration of multiple, international properties. In larger homes there usually exists a greater need for structured management in addition to the usual household staff. These are situations where owners are no longer capable of overseeing the household staff or simply have chosen to pay someone else to take on the responsibility. It is at the management or expert level where lengthy experience is invaluable, and proper household staffing can determine the overall comfort level of the owners.
Domestic couples jobs consist of making sure that the house is well presented and everything is working (sheets, beds, laundry, bulbs, lamps, heaters, electrical, etc..), cleaning the estate or chateau, also making sure to solicit and supervise expert help (like plumbing, electrical, etc..) if needed. Other parts of domestic couples jobs would be to care, cook and look after the owners. There could be other small misc jobs like painting, planting, or easy fixings both indoors and outdoors.
Private Chefs are responsible for all of the meal preparation and stocking of the kitchen including the ordering of the groceries. Private Chefs are knowledgeable of different types of menus and the ability to accommodate special dietary needs is essential. Private Chefs are responsible for the organization and operation of the kitchen and the presentation and serving of the food. They may be required to assist with or oversee special functions or events. Private Chefs usually works among other household staff.
