Domestic Couple FAQs

Some of our commonly asked questions regarding the Domestic Couple position. If you have queries or questions, please do not hesitate in contacting us.

We don’t automatically undertake a DBS for every candidate that registers with us as sometimes candidates may find their own jobs and only stay on our books for a short while. However if a client employs someone who we introduce and who does not have a current DBS but is required to have one for the position, then we are happy to do this for you.

We are able to supply staff across the whole of the UK, including Scotland and Ireland. We also cover International positions.

No, we provide a free service for candidates who are looking for work and we only invoice clients if they employ a candidate who we have introduced to them.

Unfortunately we do not provide staff for short term assignments, however we do accept some contracts for a minimum of three months upwards.

We absolutely love hearing from candidates with good, relevant experience in private households. Unfortunately without previous experience it is unlikely we will be able to help you but we are always happy to advise. Chauffeurs must have previous experience of working as a private chauffeur and not purely in chauffeur services or taxi driving.

A vacancy could be filled within a matter of days or it could take longer. The timescale depends on which candidates are registered at the time of you giving us your vacancy, and whether they match your requirements. We will never just send a CV for the sake of it or to ‘make up the numbers’.

We are happy to organise short trials wherever possible, however you need to bear in mind that it might not always be possible if a candidate is in a full time job. In order to address the fact that very occasionally things may not always go to plan, we offer a rebate/replacement period for your peace of mind.

In a nutshell, convenience, cost effectiveness and efficiency. An experienced domestic couple will be able to cover all areas of the house and grounds as a team, they will be used to working together to ensure that the house and grounds run smoothly. They will not be in competition with each other and will communicate well and are generally willing to assist in each other’s areas to ensure that all jobs are completed. For example the ‘outside’ person will be able to cover heavy cleaning duties such as moving cumbersome pieces of furniture or cleaning chandeliers, they may also be able to help serve at table, if this is required. By the same token, the ‘inside’ person will often be able to support in some outside tasks such as light gardening or keeping pathways swept.
