Working with an agency to find household staff

Finding an appropriate member of staff to work in your household will be of upmost importance, as not only will they be an employee of yours, but they will also be working in your home. Whether you would like to fill a position that has just been vacated or are recruiting for a new role, a household staff agency in London can ensure that the right person is hired for your home.

If you would like assistance with recruiting a new employee, the first thing to do is to get in touch with a household agency who will be able to guide you through the next steps.  Whether you are seeking a nanny, chef, housekeeper, gardener, butler or governor, it will help to have a general idea of the specifications of the role and a figure that you are will pay to the potential employee.

Confirming the specifications and reaching out to potential candidates

From here, the recruitment agency will then be able to put together a detailed job description, which they can then advertise in the appropriate places. From adverts on their own websites to getting in touch with potential contacts who are looking for new positions, they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge, which will help reach suitable, reliable and trustworthy candidates.

Once those that match the requirements are found, it is likely that the recruitment agency will be in touch to discuss the shortlist with you and to arrange interviews. When using a trusted agency, their assessments will be honest and should give you a ‘warts and all’ profile to help you pick the appropriate person for the role you are looking to fill.

Following the interviews, a household agency will help you to inform the successful candidate, and should support you during the hiring process. Then, upon completion, you and your new employee can look forward to a fulfilling and lasting placement.

Three treats for your feet

Even though our feet bear our weight all day, every day, they are often one of the least pampered parts of our bodies. It’s a good idea to treat your feet once in a while, so here are three treatments available at health spas in Yorkshire, which are great for giving them a little extra TLC.


This hour long treatment will be like heaven for your tired and weary feet as it includes cuticle care, hard skin removal, exfoliation and nail painting. Oils and creams are also used to massage the feet, which will help to improve circulation and stiff joints, while thermal booties soften the skin.


This long lasting nail polish can be applied to toe nails in a variety of colours and designs, perfect for when you need your feet to be sandal or flip flop ready. Applied like a nail varnish, shellac is then placed under a CV light, which ensures the hard and glossy finish.

Elemis Sole Delight for Feet

Using luxury Elemis products, renowned for their natural ingredients and cutting edge technology, your soles will be treated with warm aroma-therapeutic oils to replenish hard skin and neglected nails.
