Why choose BAHS?

We are proud to be the world’s leading domestic staffing and yachting agency, delivering a discreet and efficient service. This week, we are sharing some of the key attributes that distinguish British American Household Staffing from other agencies. 

We support women.

BAHS is a female owned and run company led by Anita Rogers. The team is made up of over twenty women based all over the world with a diverse range of backgrounds and experience; many come from the hospitality industry or the household staffing world, including former nannies, governesses, and estate managers. BAHS prides itself on supporting women; the company offers several flexible working options to support women at every stage in life, especially during pregnancy and new parenthood. Get to know our team here.

We work collaboratively.

Our recruiters all work together. Unlike most agencies, BAHS recruiters share candidate information – this means that every single candidate that is interviewed by the agency is available to all recruiters, as are all the notes on every interaction they’ve had with our team. This helps build a fuller picture of who each candidate is to help the recruiters better match clients with the right fit. Each week, the BAHS team get together to share information on the best and brightest new candidates, any red flags or causes for concern, as well as compare notes on trends and changes they are seeing within the industry. This constant collaboration ensures our clients are getting the best service.

We build relationships with our clients and candidates.

Our clients work one-on-one with a single recruiter – and that recruiter is supported by our whole team. Our talent acquisition team, our recruiters and our management team communicate frequently, ensuring that clients benefit from our collective pool of knowledge and experience. Our recruiters understand that every family dynamic is different and that, at its core, recruiting is about matchmaking. We listen to our clients and do our best to match candidates that will best be able to support each unique home.

We know the industry.

BAHS was founded in 2011 and since then, we have interviewed and successfully placed thousands of candidates. We have seen first-hand what works and what doesn’t and can help clients better navigate the complex world of domestic staffing. Through a delicate balance of in-person interactions and sophisticated software, our recruiters can quickly and efficiently sort through hundreds of applicants to find clients the best matches. Our finely-tuned software allows us to filter candidates by types of skills, languages spoken, location, and more. This also allows us to see very clearly what barriers there might be to finding the right candidate pool for a specific job and to advise clients how to best prioritize the given requirements for a job to increase the likelihood of finding the right match. Our recruiters know this industry inside and out – this means we can help advise clients on the trends, norms, expectations, and particular challenges of their search.

We partner with the best.
