Estate Where A Domestic Couple Works

What is a Domestic Couple?

A domestic couple is a set of two household employees who bring a variety of skills to the home. Generally, they are hired to look after an estate or, more commonly, a seasonal or secondary property. 

Duties of Domestic Couples

Their responsibilities include (but may not be limited to): maintenance, housekeeping, cooking, serving, and driving. They are either given a private cottage or provided a separate living area for the full year. Together a domestic couple can run one large estate successfully and can often save the employer from needing to hire multiple staff.

Usually, one person in the domestic couple is responsible for housekeeping, cooking, laundry, menu planning, and fine wardrobe care. The other member of the couple can be responsible for maintaining the grounds, pool care, car maintenance, and internal repairs such as plumbing and painting. An excellent couple will  comprise of both members being strong housekeepers and cooks. Usually, one or both drive and both can run errands. In some situations, one member of the couple can take on more high-level estate management duties such as handling bills and vendor contracts.

“This is a wonderful agency!!I have a seven-year-old daughter and the team at BAHS has helped me with different nannies for the different stages of her development and, tutors and occasional staffing needs. Once you are part of the BAHS family they will truly work with you to support your family and get you the best possible staff – and always make you feel understood and with respect for your privacy.”

“I recently utilized this agency to help me find a nanny for my six year old son.  I can’t say enough good things about the quality of the service at BAHS.  They really listened to my needs, and only sent me candidates who met my criteria and who were really interested in working with my family.  The agency’s responsiveness, attention to detail and ability to be discrete was top notch.  While I hope our current nanny stays with us as long as we need, I would use this agency again if I ever have additional staffing needs.”

“I cannot recommend this agency enough. I am a British Nanny with twenty seven years of experience so I have encountered many agencies both here and London during my working life. It did take time for me to find the right position as I am choosy, but each time I decided a job wasn’t right for me they didn’t criticize my reasoning but just persevered in finding what would eventually be the perfect fit for me.”
