Average Domestic Couple Salaries

Couples to run and manage private households and estates continue to be our most popular candidates in the Private Households & Estates 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.

So, whether you are looking to hire a live-in or a live-out domestic couple or looking to be hired as a couple, or even just want to validate your current salary, you are sure to find this average couple salary overview to be a helpful resource.
