Why Hire a Live In Housekeeper?

Reduce Family Stress

Employing a professional maid relieves families from the stress of running the home. A live in housekeeper nanny / cook will also help families with taking care of the children, cooking for the entire family, stocking the cupboards and so on. In the end, keeping your sanity is crucial.


Family Reassurances

Maids may or may not have tasks with the family’s children. Nevertheless, they are likely to come into contact with your children and be inside the home. This is why you need the reassurance that any maid hired has been vetted in the UK and internationally when required. HazeltonClive does exactly that and to make sure your family and home are always secure.

Average UK Housekeeper Salaries

The salary of a housekeeper in the UK will ultimately depend on their experience and working hours. This could be between £35,000 to £50,000 gross pa in the home counties, but it could vary if the maid occupies a live-in position with accommodation, utility bills and food allowance included. The salary can be increased if they are employed in a managerial role such as a Head housekeeper.


If you hire a maid in the UK, their salary should be reviewed in line with current market conditions frequently.

5 Considerations Before Hiring a Live In Housekeeper

  1. Accommodation

Maids may be employed and live inside or outside the family home. More often, they have a live in position and have their own bedroom or annexed apartment to the residence, making it easy for them to get to work and be available in an emergency or unforeseen circumstances.

The accommodation is expected to be spacious with a double bed and necessary amenities. They should have access to the household WiFi as well.


  1. Car

Maids often have to shop for groceries or cleaning supplies. This may require the use of a car, which the employer should provide if possible. If the maid is to use their personal car, the fuel costs and depreciation should be accounted for within their salary.


  1. Commute

HazeltonClive seeks out the best maids nearby when the employer is not offering a live-in position. Due to excellent transport links in the UK, this does not usually reduce the number of exceptional candidates available.


  1. Travel

Sometimes the family may need the live in housekeeper to travel abroad to a holiday property. In these circumstances, the maid should be paid more due to time away from home, and often longer unsociable hours. The employer should also pick up the cost of travel for the staff member.


  1. Bilingual Staff

Many families in London and across the UK want a bilingual maid to speak their mother language within the home or to communicate with children. HazeltonClive has access to a network of experienced bilingual maids to match this need.

It all gets to asking the housekeeper candidates the right questions.

You also need to make sure that once hired, you clear all the common concerns of hiring a housekeeper.
