What is a domestic couple?

The responsibilities of a domestic couple can vary depending on the needs of the household. These roles will live at the property, and see a combination of duties. If you were to hire a domestic couple, you should expect them to take on housekeeping, laundry, wardrobe management, grocery and errand running, chauffeuring, butler service, childcare, pet care, household management and the recruitment / management of junior staff.

Most live-in domestic couples can offer increased flexibility, being available to work at busy times (inclusive of evenings and weekends). Together, they can cover the core duties to run a successful private household and, for smaller properties, may be the only necessary permanent staff members.
