Living in London and need a housekeeper? Let Polo & Tweed housekeeper recruitment agency help you make the right choice, hasle-free. Click To TweetFinding domestic help in London is a necessity regardless of the size of your property. Singles in small flats can use a housekeeper just as a busy family needs a maid for their large house and executive lifestyles.
Housekeepers play a valuable role in managing homes large and small so they have to be trustworthy.
So how can you find a domestic housekeeper you can trust?
Why do you need a housekeeper?
A trustworthy housekeeper makes life easier. It’s as simple as that. You can get home from a long day at work, or a busy day out with the family, and know that your property has been cleaned and is spick and span! You won’t have to face dirty dishes or toilet bowels begging to be cleaned after a long day at work.
Perhaps you want a home-cooked meal waiting for you, or you want to make sure you have someone to call on for babysitting. Your housekeeper can fulfil all these duties and more!
What can you expect from a housekeeper?
Your housekeeper can do a number of duties and tasks to suit your needs. This can include:
- Housekeeping and Cleaning
- Wardrobe Management
- Care of linens, clothing, handbags, and shoes
- Deep cleaning and Spring Cleaning
- Cupboard and household organisation
- Household management
- Dealing with contractors and other staff
- Cooking, both for family members and dinner parties
- Serving at the dinner table, and serving guests tea and coffee
- Greeting guests and front of house service
- Running errands
- Travelling with the family if required
- Pet care
- Child care
- Admin and paperwork
How can you find a housekeeper in London?
You can find one yourself. Ask around friends and neighbours for recommendations or try online recruitment web portals such as gumtree or Indeed. Just a word of caution: be careful when self recruiting. Sadly some candidates will lie about their career history so you want to make sure they are fully vetted and reference checks completed before you let them into your property.
Using a housekeeper agency is a much safer and reliable way to save time and money on recruiting a professional housekeeper with the right skills and qualifications for the job.
An agency can give you a shortlist of vetted candidates to choose from based on your specific needs.
Remember! Never pay upfront for a preliminary search. A good agency should never charge upfront ‘registration’ fees.
You should be able to sit back and relax whilst professional consultants do all the recruitment leg work for you.
