Success Stories

Far too many to mention, and confidentiality precludes us from mentioning names, but here are a few general quotes from recent projects:
  • ‘’Our Governess/PA worked with us for nearly 10 years and became a part of the Family’’ (Client in Russia / London)
  • ‘’SPS immediately understand our expectations, and quickly found us the perfect nanny – that was 3 years ago, and she’s still here’’ (Client in Germany)
  • ‘’I have employed approximately 10 staff from SPS over many years, and trust them implicitly to understand my requirements and source people for even the most complex of roles’’ (Client in Russia/EU)
  • ‘’We have hired 3 different nannies from SPS over an 11 year period, all outstanding, definitely recommend’’ (Family in Bermuda)
  • ‘’We have used SPS as our main agency for a number of years now for butlers, nannies and more. (Heather understands our needs well and is available out of hours’’ (Middle East based Family Office)

We Build Lasting Relationships Between Candidates & Businesses

We have worked with hundreds of clients over the 20 years or so we have been focused on sourcing and providing the very best household staff, childcare and educators, but the best ones are the ones we work with repeatedly. We have a number of clients we have partnered with for more than 8 years now, and some with whom we have worked for 15+ years. Those relationships all started with the first request, and built from there. We prefer to take the longer term view, get a full understanding of your styles, attitudes and specific requirements so that we become a true recruitment partner, than to work on one placement, take the fee, and move on.
