The world of private household staffing is relatively small and news travels fast. Word of mouth has been my best promoter. I have worked with some of the best known people in private service and yachting and have a global network of clients, staff and colleagues to bring the best jobs to the market and attract the best staff and crews. In the last 7 years over 90% of new household jobs registered have been by word of mouth recommendation and satisfied returning clients. Domestic Bliss has placed domestic couples and household staff in some of the best positions on the market. 100% of my clients are very satisfied and feel the UK fees of 14% are very good value. There is also the Guarantee of knowing the Full Fee is not invoiced until a successful 8 week probation period has been completed. There is also NO VAT.

Dear Clare, It’s been a while, when you helped me to find a housekeeper for our apartment in central London. I was more than satisfied with your service and the quality of the candidates you introduced. Would you be able to help me to find a couple to work on the farm in our estate North of France.
Thank you so much for introducing H to us. We could not be more pleased with his progress and the way he has assimilated into life at X

THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH AGAIN.
I wish to send you my best wishes Thank you for all the assistance and support that you have given me during all this year.
I have spoken to Clare who has a small independent agency, a one man team, whom I have known for many years. Clare has great knowledge and understanding of placing candidates in Private homes and very much understands the workings of a private estate, such as yours! I have had a relationship with her for many years and I can call her up for advice at any time and she is always willing to help. I don’t abuse that time either! The conditions of me passing on her details are really rather simple. The interview process is pretty swift for each candidate/couple she puts forwards to you and reasonable time allowed before getting back to her with a decision. Clare will not do a trial and has never placed anyone in ten years that has ever had a trail. Clare will give you the best candidates possible to suit the role and to suit the requirements of your family and estate. The benefit of using Clare are simple, if you do decide to employ a candidate of hers, she will be on the end of the phone or email to guide you as much as possible and also the candidates. I feel the relationship is worth its weight in gold and Clare really is a person you can really talk to about every situation. Clare is honest, truthful and to the point. If you do decide to use Clare, of course fees are apparent but you get more than just a person filling a position and asking for their fees to be paid immediately. Clare would also be good to speak to about the roles you are wishing to fulfil, the salaries you should expect to pay, the hours about the role and any other concerns that you may have. Clare might just be able to get you the right person and help you develop that relationship for the long term.
Mum, Please find attached the contact details for Clare Driver. Clare has done a wonderful job finding me a housekeeper in Scotland – and I know she has done an equally great job for other people I know.
Thank you and I must say C and I have appreciated very much your care, advice and professionalism over the last few months. I also have recommended you to a director at JLL who is actively looking for help. Many thanks – you really are a rare and special individual. Much much appreciated.
“Thank you Clare. I appreciate your kindness and also your consideration in helping me find the right position. I think I will be with my new employer forever!! I’m pleased to have found a domestic agency which provides a truly professional service – one that I can trust. You have been so quick and accurate – I will recommend you to all my friends and there should be more people like you around!!
As requested, you like to hear from us as to how we are getting on with K & K. We have had our first shooting weekend which is very busy and intense. Both have been splendid. Nothing seems to be too much for them and nothing seems to faze them. Both my husband and I are really happy to have them around. I really hope they are happy too.
Thank you for both your emails. It is reassuring to know that the couple are happy and settled. Long may it last! I can’t thank you enough for your sympathetic help. Yours is not an easy job, requiring understanding of both employers’ and employees’ needs.
