Little Ones is an established international specialist providing both housekeeping and childcare services to clients who are looking for trustworthy, reliable and stress-free help around the house and/or with their children. Our dedicated and experienced consultants do an outstanding job of sourcing and interviewing potential staff, so they can recommend people who they have personally met and background checked. This process is so thorough that less than 10% of housekeeper applicants actually succeed in their application to join our team.
Providing the perfect domestic or support helpers is the mission of Little Ones, and we work closely with both our clients and our candidates to make sure we understand and meet their individual needs. In addition to undertaking a detailed personal assessment as to what our clients are looking for, we also provide training and qualifications for our candidates. Our service doesn’t end once a placement has been agreed. Instead, we are available to provide further support with administrative items such as payroll or tax registration and to advise and assist with any other questions or issues which may arise.
What is expected from a live-in housekeeper?
A live-in housekeeper offers invaluable support for any busy household, as they work around five or six days a week, generally for 10-12 hours a day, taking responsibility for various tasks. Typically these can include cleaning duties such as dusting, vacuuming, changing bed linen, cleaning bathrooms, toilets and kitchens and laundry. A live-in housekeeper can also help with shopping, light gardening and meal preparation.
All the live-in housekeepers we place are experienced, discrete, and professional in every sense, and able to fit seamlessly into your daily routines and lifestyle.
Benefits of a live-in housekeeper
A live-in housekeeper makes your day run so much smoothly as they remove the worry of stocking the fridge, washing dishes after a rushed breakfast, or chasing down parcels which were undelivered. Since they are close to hand, the services of a live-in housekeeper are also more reliable than casual local help.
