How it works


Once you’ve interviewed with us, you can update your availability by emailing your consultant. We recommend you do this regularly, as it helps us to help you in your search for your next temporary job in family offices and private households.


As a seasonal staff member, you will be required to submit a timesheet every week via our online portal. You’ll also be able to use the portal to track your timesheets in real time, submitting your hours directly onto our payroll system.

Once submitted, the timesheet is sent to your manager or authoriser to be approved; you’ll then receive an automated email to confirm that your timesheet has been accepted so you can be paid in the next payroll run.
