SALARY check FOR EMPLOYERS & domestic household staff

Finding the perfect domestic staff for your private household can be a daunting task. Likewise, it can also be a daunting task for a potential candidate when considering a new placement. Of course, both the employer and employee are looking for the best solution for them. So where do you start and how can both parties benefit from the potential working relationship ahead?

THE PERFECT HOUSEHOLD TEAM DOESN’T START WITH AVERAGE

Well, it’s true that there is an abundance of information out there regarding the ‘average salary’ for household staff, as well as cost calculators and general information. However, the average salary doesn’t guarantee the best quality or the most cost-effective solution. Moreover, entrusting the wrong staffing team can lead to a multitude of issues and even potential safety concerns.

TOP QUALITY AT THE RIGHT PRICE

Hiring estate and household domestic staff provides busy families with more time to focus on the things most important to them. The invaluable staffing support allows them to prioritise their business, family and personal needs. Therefore, it is crucial to establish the right foundation, expectations, and offerings from the very beginning. Each client has unique requirements, and various contributing factors can impact costs.

For example:

  • Skills, qualifications and experience of the butler.
  • Is it a short-term or long-term contract?
  • How many hours or days a week?
  • Live in or live out?
  • UK based or international requirements.
  • What are the main daily tasks and requirements?
  • Is there a household staffing team that requires managing?
  • What is the type of property? (eg: large house, a private estate or multiple properties).
  • Is the house a private domestic family home or is it used to provide business services?
