How We Work

We offer a quality service to both clients and staff and will not waste your time by sending unsuitable applicants nor waste the applicant’s time by sending them for unsuitable posts.

After establishing your requirements we provide you with a selection of suitable candidates from our extensive database. For each candidate we endeavor to produce résumé outlining a candidate’s details and include a photograph. Once you have chosen the right candidates we will arrange the interviews on your behalf.


All our applicants have gone through our rigorous process of personal interview, reference and previous employment history verification. They must have at least two years experience and / or relevant professional qualifications. We ensure that all applicants have legal rights to work in the UK.

All written references are personally verbally endorsed before any candidate would be considered for any suitable vacancy.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail and being fully up to date with all aspects of domestic service employment issues.

It is our policy to follow up on our candidate’s progress and we are always available to discuss any issues, should the need arise. We offer a guarantee period during which we offer replacement staff as detailed in our Terms of Business.

Through our knowledge in the industry, and are extensive contacts and attention to details, we have developed a strong reputation in excellence. We pride ourselves in our friendly, personal touch and take the time to build a strong relationship with our clients. Much of our business derives from personal recommendations.
