  • 5 star review  We would highly recommend Katherine for her sheer professionalism, dedication and obviously great success in finding us a new job as a couple in a private household. The work she put in to help us over our search period was second to none. She understood exactly what we were looking for and we can't thank her and her company enough for all her hard work and dedication in finding us a new role.

  • 5 star review  We were very upset when we found out that the house we’ve been managing was sold and we had just five weeks to find a new role and a new home. We immediately contacted Katherine at Katherine Shields Private Staff. She told us not to worry and reassured us that something would come up. Three weeks later we’ve just had confirmation that we have a new job to start. On meeting Katherine you can immediately sense her professionalism. You get to know her very quickly and she gets to know you. She assesses your personality and your capabilities and is able to match you with the perfect role. We really can’t thank her enough. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a future in a private household.

  • 5 star review  Katherine who has known us for over 10 years and knows we take a pride in our work, has just placed us in what we consider the perfect role, working for a couple who wanted a gardener with a passion for gardening, an animal loving couple, and 5* housekeeper. Katherine goes the extra mile to make sure she has matched the right candidate to the client and feeds back immediately on any questions or queries, in a friendly and efficient manner. We were still driving back from our interview when we had our job offer - amazing service!

“After being with our first family for 18 years looking for a new position was daunting, we met Katherine who was so encouraging and professional, within a week we had 3 interviews lined up and were offered a job within 10 days!! What we had thought was going to be difficult, with Katherine as our mediator was just so exciting. She understood us as a couple and matched us with the most lovely family. We remain so grateful for the ongoing support and cannot recommend her enough to anyone looking for work in this sector and to any prospective employers.”

Simon & Sherna Forrest

This means the client is presented first time round with a short list of high standard candidates, which is of course the ideal. If you are looking for a first rate staffing agency, look no further.”
