Hire Domestic Staff for A Day


Published on January 11, 2021

Did you know that you can hire domestic staff for a day? There are many different options you can choose from. And many different reasons. It can be a great addition to a special party or event, for example. Or perhaps you need the extra help for a certain day, but not something long term. Find out all the options here and how to hire domestic staff for a day!

Hiring domestic staff for the day is a very straight forward thing to do. Probably much easier than you think! There are many different types of domestic staff available that could be booked for the day. So let’s have a look at the most popular options and see what might work for you.

Butler For A Day

When you look to hire domestic staff for a day, hiring a butler might well be one of the most popular options out there. A butles is such a versatile and special addition to any event and can really add a luxury touch.

You can, for example, think about a special birthday party, dinner, or even a small wedding. A Butler can offer many different skills to the day. From helping you with organisation and styling of tables and decor. To being an active presence on the day. That could be in the form of serving food and drinks. Or simply to be the go-to person during the event to answer any questions. To welcome people. And to show people the way, take coats, and hand out leaving gifts. For example! This can be done in a really formal, traditional butler way. Or if you prefer a more modern set up, a butler can do that too.

Housekeeper For A Day

When you are looking to hire domestic staff for the day, a housekeeper can be one of the most useful staff to consider. But make sure you have your expectations right. A Housekeeper is not just a cleaner. So if you are looking for someone to clean up after a party, a housekeeper would not offer that much extra value. And they would probably not be interested too!

Where a housekeeper shines is in all the extra added details. The – as the word rightly says it – ‘keeping of the house’. So going back to above, perhaps you have a special party or event. Or even guests staying over. What a housekeeper can do is make sure to have everything in the house not only cleaned but also beautifully styled and presented. Think fresh flowers, suited candles, folded towels on the bed. It can be a real show stopper!

Before you hire a housekeeper fo the day though, make sure you are very clear on the size of the tasks ahead. One housekeeper, however skilled or experienced, will only be able to do so much. So if you have a large house, you might need to consider hiring several housekeepers, to get the job done to the high standard you are after.

Nanny For A Day

Hiring a nanny for a day can be a great solution for many parental situations! Let’s take the example of the party or event again, for example. This is arguably the most popular reason people would decide to hire a nanny for the day. Because perhaps you do want your child(ren) at the event. But you also want to be able to focus on your guests or the activities. And not constantly having to worry about caring for, and entertaining the children.

Having a nanny for the day can be a great solution. Not only for your child(ren) but also for any children the guests may have. A great nanny would set up a separate space for the kids. This could be a completely separate room, for example. Or simply a quieter corner in the event space that will be suitable set up with lots of things to keep the kids happy and entertained. So that they will have a great day, and you do not have to worry about them either!

Chef For A Day

Of all of the types of domestic staff you could hire for the day, the chef is a much sought after one. Who would not want to recreate a high end, private dining experience in their own home? Whether you are unable to go out or want to simply enjoy restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home. A private chef for the day can bring this all for you.

This could be an absolute showstopper for a dinner party with friends or family, for example. A chef can create a menu exactly to your liking, so this can be great if there are different dietary requirements, for example. Again something less for you to worry about. Some chefs will also be able to do all the food shopping for you and recommend a matching wine menu. Having a chef for the day or evening can really be a special thing to look back on for months to come!

    Hi there,
    We are looking for a butler (informal) for a home party we are hosting. We are hosting an event for ca 20 people and would like someone who can help keep food service nice and organised (we are having sushi) and also serve drinks to everyone.
    Is this something you can help with?
    Many thanks
