What are our clients saying about us?

  • Amanda I used Polo & Tweed to find me a housekeeper after I had my second child to help around the house so that I could concentrate on the new baby and my toddler. The service Polo & Tweed provided was excellent. I was able to interview several candidates before finding an excellent housekeeper. I was supported in finding someone who was the right fit for my situation. They also took the headache out of agreeing hours, contracts and pay. The housekeeper was excellent and just knew what needed to be done without being asked.
  • Julien Polo & Tweed is a professional recruitment agency, dedicated in outsourcing the best domestic staff profile to match your Household requirements. The team is very efficient and experienced, their dedication to understanding the client need combined with a large network of candidates, will make the overall process hasslefree. Top agency.
  • Therese I am very impressed by the service of Lucy and her Team. They are quick, efficient and extremely friendly and helpful. They are consumer oriented and understand the customers’ Needs which often is not the case with other agencies. Almost all of the candidates she introduced where valuable candidates, so she has a good stock of People. I have worked now twice with Lucy and will definitely do it again when I need a new nanny.

What you would need to consider

Accommodation

Even though some clients preference is for the housekeeper to live out, some of our clients (particularly those based around the world) like to help source/pay for separate accommodation for the housekeeper.  This means that they are helping with the re-location aspect.  For example, many of our Middle Eastern clients in Dubai will provide separate accommodation for the Housekeeper, but this is still considered a live out role.  However the client will cover all the costs/running costs of the separate accommodation (and the salary will reflect this).

Car

If you require the Housekeeper to drive, then most clients provide the housekeeper with access to the family cars, or indeed her own dedicated car to drive for errands, shopping etc.  If the housekeeper has her own car, then it is typical to expect the salary to reflect her travel/fuel costs when using the car as part of their duties during each day.

Commute

Take into account where your housekeeper lives and where how far they will be commuting each day.  Remember that traffic and train delays can cause problems for the housekeeper arriving, so bear in mind the commute the housekeeper will have to take each day to get to you.

Travel

Some of our clients ask their full time housekeepers to travel with the family to help.  Again this needs to be reflected in the salary/package offered, and typically clients will agree a ‘holiday rate’ to pay to the housekeeper if they are being asked to work 24/7 for a number of days in a row.
