Local Household Staffing Agency Vs Large Household Staffing Agency

Here are some pros and cons of choosing a local household staffing agency and a larger agency:


  1. Personalised Service: Local agencies often provide a more personalised and hands-on service, tailoring their approach to the specific needs of the client.
  2. Regional Knowledge: They have a deep understanding of the local market, including local area, cost of living, and candidate and client preferences.
  3. Accessibility: Clients may find it easier to visit the agency in person, fostering a closer relationship and better communication which ultimately leads to a better understanding of what the client is looking for.
  4. Cost saving: Often local agencies have less overheads meaning that they can pass these cost savings on to their clients.
  5. Quality over Quantity: Because of their lower overheads they don’t need to take on as many clients, meaning that they can focus on filling the positions with quality candidates rather than rushing to get the job done.


  1. Limited Network: Local agencies may have a smaller pool of candidates compared to larger agencies, limiting the options available for clients so they may not send as many CVs to the client.
  2. Resource Constraints: They may have fewer resources and may not offer specialised services compared to larger agencies, like providing additional training.


  1. Extensive Network: Larger agencies often have a broader network, providing access to a diverse pool of candidates with various skills and experiences, meaning they can send lots of CVs to their clients.
  2. Specialised Services: They may offer specialised services, such as managing complex estates, or providing additional training.
  3. Reputation and Resources: Larger agencies often have a well-established reputation and more resources to advertise, meaning that they can attract more clients.


  1. Less Personalisation: Due to their size, larger agencies may offer less personalised service compared to local agencies, and clients may feel less individual attention.
  2. Higher Costs: The fees for services provided by larger agencies may be higher compared to local agencies due to their larger overheads, reflecting the broader range of resources and services they offer.
  3. Lower quality: Because they need to fill their positions quickly they may not focus as much on quality of their candidates as the smaller agencies do.
  4. More competition: Because they are in competition with the other big agencies they need to fill the position fast in order to not lose the job to another agency. This means that they may send their client lots of CVs to filter through, rather than focus on quality CVs.
