Welcome to Abode Household Staffing. We specialise in sourcing quality household staff for our clients. We’ll help you find the very best nannies, housekeepers, gardeners, chefs, chauffeurs, domestic couples, estate managers, and more!

Our Location

Our office is based in West Berkshire and the majority of our clients are in the surrounding counties – Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Wiltshire.

We like to work locally as this gives us the chance to meet our candidates and clients in person if they wish to. However, if a client would like to use our services from further afield then we are happy to do things remotely! We have even worked with clients from the USA, Dubai and Saudi Arabia in the past.

Please use the links below to find out more about how we can help you find staff who are local to you!

About The Owner

A Passionate Journey in Recruitment

With a decade of experience in the exciting world of recruitment, I started my journey by recruiting carers, I then spent the past four years specialising in household recruitment. The decision to continue to focus on this niche stems from my genuine enjoyment of making life that little bit easier for my clients, and finding my candidates their dream jobs!

A Balancing Act and Entrepreneurial Spirit

Last year marked a pivotal moment in my life as I embraced the joys of motherhood while also achieving a significant milestone – completing a Master’s degree in Human Resources. This period of growth led me to a crucial decision: I didn’t want to return to my full-time role. Instead, I wanted to continue to do what I love whilst also savouring the precious moments of parenting – so I founded Abode!

The decision to start my own business was driven by a desire for more than just work-life balance; it was a commitment to providing my clients and candidates with the service they deserve. I believe that true excellence in household staffing comes from a personal touch and a dedicated approach, elements that can be better fostered in an environment where I have the autonomy to make decisions that prioritise quality over quantity.

Owning and operating Abode allows me to ensure that each client receives a bespoke solution tailored to their unique needs. I’m not just a recruiter; I’m an entrepreneur dedicated to providing a level of service that surpasses expectations. I believe that personalised, high-quality service is best delivered by someone who is deeply invested in the success of each placement.
