What our clients say...


It was the first time that I applied for a position through Massey's Agency and I was very impressed, especially with the support and assistance I received from Alice. Unlike a majority of the agencies, Alice kept me informed daily and replied to my emails promptly, without being reminded. I have no hesitation in recommending Massey's Agency.

Having spent 14 years in the private household and superyacht industry, Alice from Massey's Agency has been the best agent I've ever worked with. She really understood my C.V., and within days had put me forward for 3 roles. These roles were perfect for me, as she has really listened to my requirements. She confirmed everything with me before putting me forward to ensure I was happy, and I always felt she had my best interests at heart - a rare quality in recruitment agents! I can't recommend them highly enough.

I genuinely could not be happier with the housekeeper that I've found through Massey's Agency - I had very specific scheduling requests and even though it's a difficult time to find part-time candidates in general, Denise worked hard to find the person who both had the qualities outlined in my brief and could work on the days I required. The person we have working with us now is more skilled (and certainly more professional) than anyone we've had before, and that to us demonstrates the value of working with a credible agency like Massey's.

We couldn’t have asked for more from an Agency of this type in terms of professionalism and dedication to finding a suitable couple for our recent vacancy. Nothing was too much trouble for Alice and she was available to talk even over a holiday period. As a result of her persistence and hard work we have found a wonderful couple who we feel confident will become an invaluable part of our home and family. Thank you Alice, we couldn’t have done it without you!
