Frequently Asked Questions.

Some of our commonly asked questions regarding the Executive Housekeepers position. If you have queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on 020 3033 0000 or Mail@MasseysAgency.co.uk.

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.

It may not be immediately obvious but there are marked differences between the two. Private housekeepers are usually expected to ‘keep house’ which involves a lot more than just being a great cleaner. They will take into account the entire household and will know to undertake things such as checking the fridge contents for expiry dates, checking larder stocks for items that need replenishing and making sure that there are adequate supplies of all items.  They will usually know how to set a formal table and how to spot any potential maintenance issues. The key difference is that they will almost certainly have better laundry skills and be confident in caring for delicate fabrics and designer clothing. Housekeepers with a hotel background are usually very good at cleaning quickly and efficiently but are used to working in a structured environment based around cleaning only and they can find it hard to adjust to the varying demands within a private household.
