A housekeeper’s duties may include:

Couples are experienced and multi-skilled individuals who work together as a team to provide an array of housekeeping services to ensure the smooth running of your property. Due to the versatility of skills provided, a couple can take care of a wide range of responsibilities ranging from childcare to housekeeping and cooking, to gardening and maintenance.

Furthermore couples enjoy greater work satisfaction and are generally looking for longer-term employment.

Cooks/chefs hold a diverse range of culinary skills and are responsible for planning and preparing an employer’s desired cuisine.

Many common health problems can be prevented or cured with a healthy diet and balanced lifestyle. A cook can plan nutritionally balanced menus and prepare healthy meals.

Groundskeeper / Gardener
A groundskeeper is a person (usually with a gardening background or horticultural qualification) who maintains a garden landscape for appearance and/or functionality. A groundskeeper’s duties may include landscaping, lawn care, weed and pest control, trimming of hedges, planting trees and flowers, maintaining flower beds, raking dead leaves, helping with rubble removal, cleaning of paving and driveways, swimming pool care and other home maintenance or carpentry work.

Housesitters maintain a regular presence in your home (either live-in or live-out), while you are away on a holiday, a business trip or in hospital. Their duties may include caring for your pets, maintaining your pool, tending to your plants and making sure that your home and possessions are safe while you are away.

Personal assistant
Personal assistants have excellent organizational, administrational and communicational skills, and are responsible for the daily management of an employer’s personal and business tasks.

We only place domestic staff of the highest calibre. All of our staff undergo comprehensive screening and selection procedures. Our background investigations may include checking employer references, medical reports and criminal clearance checks.
