We will vet every applicant who applies to us and only the best candidates will be considered. First hand experience is a prerequisite. We will actively source suitable candidates for you and will ensure their skills match your specific requirements.

From the outset, the brief you give us will be the brief we follow and only perfectly matched candidates will be selected for your meeting. We aim to provide you with high end, highly skilled, experts of their field.

We can also offer devised training programs or specifically tailor service training to your exact requirements. Many of our clients have benefited from this, for example, they have asked us to find them a Housekeeper but they also want a service professional. If we find a suitable Housekeeper that lacks confidence with the skills of a Butler, we will polish their skills by conducting a training course to really enhance their service execution.

We will screen every candidate, check their background and contact their references. We also insist on running a criminal record check before we consider a working relationship.
