Private Households & Estates Salaries
Flexibility, innovation and tailoring our offering to meet demand has been key to our growth in this domestic staff sector and we expect this to continue. The housekeeper-nanny role continues to be popular with a 10% increase in placements – even during turbulent times, nationally. The integrated Nanny / Housekeeper role which became popular with our clients in recent years continues to be sought-after, as do female butlers. Overall, there has been a significant increase in demand for live-in roles of all types, which means our best live-in candidates can often choose from a number of varied and rewarding roles.
Couples to run and manage private households and estates continue to be our most popular candidates in this sector, with a 20% rise in recent years and we expect this to continue. Couples can be a more cost-effective, efficient way to run a house or estate, particularly in rural areas which are often busier throughout the week. Finding the right couples can be challenging for many factors such as accommodation, lifestyle and experience which is why we are particularly proud of the successful placements we are making and why we continue to use our reach to advertise for experienced couples.
