26 Feb The Benefits of Hiring a Domestic Couple
What Is A Domestic Couple?
A domestic couple is usually a husband and wife who work for a property on a live-in basis in their own separate or self-contained accommodation. Between them, they will be responsible for a variety of different household tasks.
Usually, the female will be required to run the household, provide childcare, family cooking or a mix of all of these – usually in the role of a Housekeeper or Nanny. The male may be required to work as a chauffeur, handyman, butler, gardener or again a mixture of these.
Whilst domestic couples tend to be a husband and wife, they can sometimes be brother and sister, a long-term unmarried couple, civil partnership or two friends who have combined skills.
Why Should You Consider Hiring a Domestic Couple?
Domestic couples are becoming an increasingly popular option because as a couple, they can provide a wealth of services and together can cover many of the requirements of your household staff needs.
The brilliant thing about a domestic couple is that they come as a ready-made team, who have excellent communication between them to ensure all their household responsibilities are taken care of. They are likely to be able to commit to the job for the longer term and be able to work more flexibly as they work with their partner. As well as this, a domestic couple is usually more cost-effective as they earn a joint salary.
There are many different types of domestic couples you can employ, and you can advertise for the skills you most desire for domestic couple jobs.
