We are the London agency that comes to you

Many of my clients are in London so being based one hour from Central London keeps me in touch with clients visiting them in their homes in Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Bishops Avenue, Hampstead and South Kensington. I have clients with houses and country estates in all UK counties such as Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and even Ireland and Scotland.

Terms of Business

Since I started my company, I have always worked hard to make sure clients receive value for money and because of the 100% success rate, unlike other agencies there is no upfront fee charged.

Full terms of Business will be sent to explain in detail that on successful placement a deposit is paid once the staff start their new jobs to give the freedom of 8 weeks probation. When the placement is confirmed after the 8 week probation the invoice is sent for a fee less the deposit paid– there is no charge of VAT.

The fee is 14% of the annual gross salary per person for permanent placements.

In the unlikely event after the 8 week assessment the placement does not result in an offer that is accepted and the staff is no longer employed there is no further fee charged.
