Hire Ladies’ Maids
Bespoke Ladies' Maids For Your Household
At Melissa Offer, we specialise in hiring highly skilled ladies’ maids that will meet your expectations. Your lady’s maid will be a companion, a confidante, an attendant, a lady-in-waiting and a waiting-woman. We make sure that we choose the proper maid for your household, who will be solely responsible for the house’s outward appearances and correct functioning.
This honourable role is a position of trust. A lady’s maid is welcomed into a household and family home, exposed to and privy to the most intimate personal aspects of the household, while being entrusted to be professional and ensure discretion at all times.
While often looked at as more of a traditional staffing role, the role itself is not dissimilar to a personal assistant. It focuses more on the personal rather than the professional.
At Melissa Offer Private staffing, we understand the levels of experience, attention to detail and professionalism this job requires. We work with you to ensure that you find not only your ideal candidate but one you feel comfortable welcoming into your home and your everyday life.
As a leading ladies’ maids recruitment agency, we recruit only the best talents that will match our clients’ needs, reducing your stress and increasing the value of your time.
What Can I Expect When Hiring A Ladies' Maid?
Adding a lady’s maid to any household with a busy chatelaine can be transformative. In addition to it, traditionally referred to as a Lady-In-Waiting, a lady’s maid is generally assigned to the lady of the house. It is the female equivalent of a Gentleman’s valet.
Typically, ladies’ maids will travel with their employer on almost all occasions to assist or offer advice. Being mindful of manners, formalities, and etiquette is of great importance in this role, as is constantly being professional in appearance.
At Melissa Offer Private Staffing, we also expect traditional values and that the ladies’ maids we recruit are experienced, mindful and informed about etiquette, local cultures, and formalities.
In keeping with tradition, ladies’ maids are often on duty from the moment their employer wakes up until she goes to bed. But of greater importance is the art of discretion. A private lady’s maid holds a position of trust in that she is privy to the personal lives of her employers. This puts her in a powerful position that she should never abuse.
At Melissa Offer Private Staffing, we are passionate about placing the right people in your household – to fit in seamlessly with your life. This is why we take the time to listen to your requirements to help eliminate any areas of concern and find the best ladies’ maids for your household.
