Looking to Recruit Housekeeping Staff?


We may be able to help. The housekeepers we source from EU countries such as Hungary, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Latvia etc. for you are grouped into 2 categories. Being a multicultural website, we do not discriminate against any of the 10 east europe EU countries and unless there is a specific need for a particular language in your establishment, we consider all candidates / applicants equally on their own merit.

1. Live in Housekeepers
These are hard working reliable individuals looking for work as housekeepers in a live in capacity only. Depending on the nature of the job as well as their backgrounds, they will expect suitable accommodation , this may be their own flat or a private ideally ensuite room. The housekeeper found for you will reflect the nature of the job. Hotels/ Guesthouses will be provided with experienced ladies that speak decent English. Private homes/ estates may be provided with educated ladies who may not have paid cleaning experience, but have lots of experience of running their own personal households and children while maintaining professional jobs. Your job description and package offered will to a large extent determine the individual you can get.

2. Live out housekeepers
Similiar to the live in positions above, however, these are ladies or men that are happy to work on a live out basis subject to private accommodation availability and affordability.

3. Housekeeping couples As above, except these are a husband and wife / boyfriend and girlfriend looking for a joint position within a hotel, guesthouse, large home, country estate.

Housekeeping staff are not limited to just England, Scotland or Ireland, we are happy to find people willing to work in France, Switzerland as well as other EU/ EEA countries.

Please get in touch with us using the contact us page and clearly outline your staffing requirements.

Housekeeping Recruitment FAQs

1. Will my housekeeper perform nanny duties?
Ans. Generally speaking a person employed as a housekeeper will not undertake nanny duties, however, if you require a live-in housekeeper to also act as a nanny (nanny-housekeeper), please make this clear in your job description to make the candidate fully aware of this requirement before they begin their duties to avoid misunderstanding as not all housekeepers want to deal with other people's children.

2. Can i employ a live out housekeeper?
Ans. Yes, you are perfectly entitled to employ a live-in or live-out housekeeper, however, most staff they will be looking for live-in positions or live-out jobs with private accommodation available as accommodation is the most important thing to them and all of us. We all need a place to sleep from day one.

3. How much do I need to pay my housekeeper?
Ans. This depends entirely on your budget, the quality of personnel you require, size of premises as well as the hours of work required. As a general rule, we require the salary to be market competitive or at least practical. We get a lot of very impractical requests. You can't employ a a full-time housekeeper and then pay them like an Au Pair for example.This is just exploitation. From our point of view, we will only accept live-in family requests that meet a minimum of 80% of the local basic pay level. Live-out requests must meet at least 100% of basic pay levels.

4. But we are family with very limited finances
Ans. A lot of families have tight budgets and are just hard working "regular people." We understand that, as we are all family members as well. However, you make an optional choice to employ domestic staff and they are justified to expect a wage to reflect that, otherwise they can just go into the open job marketplace. The days of "Au Pair wages" for 5 or 6 days full-time housekeeping work are long over. This not only breaches the spirit of what Au Pairs are about, but also does not take into account that all candidates have been part of the EU job market since 2004 and 2007 now, and working generations have moved on.

5. Can i pay her/him in cash?
Ans. It is entirely up to you, how you wish to pay your domestic staff. To avoid confusion, disagreements or breaching your local employment laws, paying money by cheque or into bank accounts and keeping records is proper practice. If you do give cash then at least get them to acknowledge receipt of the cash by both parties signing a simple dated piece of paper. This avoids them turning around and saying you did not pay them or you paid them less than you should have.
