Headquarters in the heart of London for 25 years
Whilst we have a strategic high street presence across the UK and an international network of consultants, our headquarters has always been based in London. It is from here that we have earned our reputation and unrivalled understanding of the ever-evolving childcare, private household and corporate staffing needs of families and professionals in London, the home counties and the south of England.
A name and history of prestige
Greycoat Lumleys is a name that has been trusted by high net worth individuals and those that manage their households for 25 years. We work with the most experienced and talented professionals from the catering, childcare, corporate, ski & yacht, international and private staffing sectors. Your dedicated consultant will meet with you, understand your lifestyle and requirements and match you with candidates that have not only the perfect qualifications and experience but the right attitude and personality.
Consultants and candidates with unrivalled expertise
Managing Director, Debbie Salter, and her team of specialist consultants are regularly quoted in the national media due to their unique insight into the private recruitment and hospitality sector. Our reputation has grown to the extent that the number of consultants and resourcers working from our London office doubled in the first 3 years under Debbie's leadership, from 20 to over 50. We believe that much of our success comes from factors such as having a database of vetted, talented candidates, getting to know our London clients so that we can provide a bespoke service and our long history of successful placements which attracts both clients and candidates to us.
Innovative solutions for today's busy households
The traditional roles of London Nanny, Housekeeper or London Butler will always be popular. However, as life changes and many of us multi-task, our clients can need more flexible staffing solutions. Nanny/Housekeeper and Butler/House Manager, Couples, merged roles are increasingly requested by our London clients. Families often now request childcare professionals with teaching and child psychology qualifications, as well as over ten years’ experience. Alternatively, you may require our services temporarily or on an ad-hoc basis. Part-time nanny positions and our MyChef Dinner Party service continue to be highly popular across London.
When life is on-the-move, we'll support you at every step
As the world becomes more connected, international travel has become part of daily life. Whether for work or pleasure, many of our clients need staff that can travel with them. In fact, our corporate London clients increasingly provide au pairs to travel with their executives that have young families and want a better life-work balance. In addition, clients have homes and estates away from London, where they can stay for longer periods of time thanks to more remote working practices. We can provide staff with the flexibility to live in different locations and we can also manage properties in your absence.
You can be assured that wherever you are in the world, Greycoat Lumleys can be relied upon to make your life easier when you need them, for however long you need them. Call us and you be put in contact with one of our specialist consultants or email with any questions or for an informal conversation.
