Hazelton Clive is one of the top agencies which provides the best housekeepers for your home. Their service is dedicated to bring you an experienced maid to suit your preferences. They offer different types of housekeepers such as live in housekeeper, nanny housekeeper, domestic couple, live out housekeeper, live-in couple, maids, bilingual domestic staff, part-time maid, head housekeeper and so on.
Among them, there are a few good reasons for which you should opt for hiring a live-in housemaid. One is, the stress of the family gets reduced a lot. When you employ a professional maid for your household, you are naturally less worried about the chores being done properly. A live-in housekeeper will look into cooking for the whole family, taking care of children, stocking up the cupboard and other such things. They are utterly beneficial to keep you sane at the end of the day! The maids can come into contact with the children of the house without having anything to do with them. That is why they should be inside the home and you need to assure that any housekeeper that you hire should be vetted in the UK or internationally as per requirement. Hazelton Clive deftly handles all these and guarantees you utmost safety.

• Considerations for live-in housekeeper:
The housemaids may need to buy groceries and cleaning supplies for the household. For that, the employers should provide a car if they have one. The cost of transportation and depreciation is to be adjusted within the housekeepers’ salary.
Employees may stay outside or inside of the employer’s home. As they will live in, they can have a separate apartment or own room inside the residency which is convenient for going to work in a short time and be available due to any special or emergency situation. The room is expected to be spacious with necessary things and double bed and they should be provided access to the Wi-Fi if there’s one.
If the employer cannot provide a live-in accommodation to the maid, the agency tries to seek out help from nearby places. This doesn’t at all limit the options of candidates as the transportation in the UK is quite excellent.
Many employers in different places of the UK, including London, demand a multilingual housekeeper who can speak the local language to communicate with children or others at home. Hazelton has access to such a plethora of maids who can fulfil this criterion.
The live-in maid may need to travel to another country to another home of the employer. In such cases, they must be given extra salary for longer unsociable hours and for the time they spend away from home. The travel cost should also be given by the employer.
• Average Salary:
The salary of the staff depends solely on the working hours and their work experience. It can get increased if they are hired in an authoritative role such as a head housekeeper. The salary can be from 35,000-50,000 gross pa in home counties and can vary if the housemaid is employed in a live-in position. Salaries should be reviewed with current market conditions often.
