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.
  • Bijal They found me a part time housekeeper quickly, efficiently, with a great vetting system. Great team, great communication.

How P&T classify our Maternity Nurses - Salary Guidelines

As these tend to be short term placements (between 3 months to 6 months), the salaries are calculated on a day rate.  (If you are requiring long term support then consider hiring a Maternity Nanny)  The below day rates are reflective of 24 hour of care.

All our Maternity Nurses are qualified and experienced candidates.  However we do have entry level/mid-level Maternity Nurses on our books. These are candidates who have a background in childcare and are transitioning into specialising in this area.  This is P&T general guide to salary:

Entry level/Less experienced Maternity Nurse

£200-250 per day (single baby) and £250-350 per day (multiple babies)


Mid level/More experienced Maternity Nurse

£250-350 per day (single baby) and £350-450 per day (multiple babies)


High level/Very experienced Maternity Nurse

£350+ per day (single baby) and £450+ per day (multiple babies)

What you would need to consider

Type of Support – Days, Nights or 24 hours

Different Maternity Nurses will provide different levels of support.  Some provide daytime support (12 hours), and others provide only night support.  Most provide 24 hour support, where the Maternity Nurse will work for 24 hours (with a few hours off each day to catch up on sleep from the night before).

Most of our clients prefer 24 hour support as it gives them the most from their maternity nurse.  For more detail on different types of support, refer to our article on how to pick the perfect maternity nurse.

Remember that a maternity nurse cannot work 24 hours 7 days a week.  If you require round the clock care consider either hiring two maternity nurses to either work 3/24 and 4/24 or 7 days on/7 days off.


Maternity Nurses will live in the house during their hours of support.  When they are ‘off-duty’ or resting you must provide them with their own space and room in order to relax. Some maternity nurses are happy to use the nursery day bed, but bear in mind they must have privacy.  Some maternity nurses prefer to leave on their day(s) off, so bear this in mind when interviewing the maternity nurse or letting us know if this is a preference.


It is typical to provide food to your maternity nurse when they are in your employ.  If you travel/take them out with you it is customary to cover all their additional expenses and food.  On their days off the maternity nurse may be provided food, but this is down to each clients preference.
