L. A. , Altrincham, Cheshire
We were delighted with the service we received from Harris Recruitment.
From the moment I explained our needs to Julia, through all of the stages of recruitment, Julia and Fiona gave me clear, supportive and extremely professional guidance.
They made a daunting task happen so easily. They took care of the search, first round of interviewing, DBS checks, reference checking, advising on employment and all I had to do was interview and appoint.
We are over the moon with the candidate who we employed. She is making huge inroads into making a real difference to the quality of our family member’s life and as a result is having a huge positive effect on all of our lives.
I would definitely come back to Harris Recruitment should we need to recruit again and would recommend them to anyone needing support.
Thanks so much,
A. B. , London & Cheshire
We had been struggling to find a housekeeper for over a year and if honest had not known how to take it forward. It was very difficult to find anything locally through local ads.
Once I spoke to Julia I felt reassured that she would find what we needed, even though we were not after a full time person.
My wife and I both work full time and we have a young dog as well. So we really needed somebody to provide some daily continuity and provide some support for the three of us.
Julia and her team found that for us and we are really pleased with the result. The service was highly professional and efficient.

I haven’t had chance to thank you all properly, for giving me the opportunity to get my new job.
I am absolutely over the moon with the position, and the family. They seem so approachable, friendly and genuine. The whole working environment too for me is the total opposite of what I have had for the past 8 months here in Cheshire.
I just can’t thank you enough all the interviews you have arranged for me, you have been far more pro-active than any of the other agencies I have dealt with.
So once again a huge Thank you!

Having already found us a great housekeeper, we would like to thank The Housekeeper Company once again for all your hard work and understanding with finding us a replacement gardener, you have done really well to find us four strong applicants.
The landscaper who we asked for his advice on the four candidates, was also really impressed at who you had found for us and said he would consider your company when he was looking for someone!
A M, Cheshire
Can I take this opportunity to say how impressed I have been with the service from start to finish.
All of your team have been really pleasant and efficient to deal with and the depth of information you provide about each candidate is fantastic.
I’ve been having a very stressful time lately and your team certainly has made the recruitment of a Nanny much easier. When I compare it to other local Nanny agencies I have used, and the agency we used in the past for our business, you are leagues above.
I wouldn’t use anyone else now, and would highly recommend you to others. Many thanks
M H, Monmouthshire
Thank you very much. The service so far has been excellent, will definitely recommend you to my friends!
Mrs L, Hadley Wood, Herts
I have used cleaners for many years and just made do, as I had no idea how to find good people.
Over the years I increased the pay, changed from cleaner to housekeeper, increased the hours and
Thanks to Harris Recruitment I have found or they have found me a delightful housekeeper who fits
in well with our family and works hard.
C D, Herts
I have used the Housekeeper Company on a number of occasions and still find them the most professional company around. They have always fully understood my needs, and have an excellent response time in finding suitable candidates. I don’t go anywhere else now.
L H, Herts
With 3 teenagers, a busy household and working from home I finally realised that I really wasn’t managing. Having used The Housekeeper Company previously, I contacted them to help me find a Housekeeper. Within days they found me my very own Mrs Doubtfire! Contacting The Housekeeper Company was the best decision I made.
J C, Cheshire
The team at The Housekeeper Company was professional, courteous, and very helpful. From the first call in which we talked through how to think through the two searches we wanted to conduct, through multiple calls in which they provided advice, arranged interviews and discussed feedback, the team was excellent in guiding me through the hiring process. We are very happy with the two candidates (a housekeeper and a personal cook) we ended up working with, after an extremely smooth and efficient process led by The Housekeeper Company.
S S, St Johns Wood, London
I want to say a very heartfelt and grateful thank you to you for your advice; for the care and thought you gave; and for what felt like your very real recognition of my circumstances and your efforts to assist, these, together with what appears to be likely to be a successful placement have all made a crucial difference to my efforts to hold things together, after all that has happened to us and progress forwards. Many, many thank- I am happy to pass on positive recommendations of your services.
Mrs D, Cheshire
Five of my friends and I have found employees who match our requirements exactly through The Housekeeper Company. I never hesitate when recommending the company. The service is impeccable.
Mrs B, Herts
Harris Recruitment was extremely helpful and efficient. As a newcomer to employing a nanny they helped me understand how things could work for me and how to secure a quality nanny. I had very tight deadlines and they didn’t hesitate in helping me meet them. Excellent quality and highly recommended.
Mrs M, Cheshire
The most efficient and friendly agency we’ve dealt with! They understood and fulfilled the requirements of our household and our family’s needs.
Mrs W, Cheshire
Finding a nanny was one of the most challenging job searches I have had to do. I spoke with several agencies to ensure a broad search but very quickly stopped talking to the other two agencies. Harris Recruitment was excellent. They only sent suitable nannies, instead of everyone on their books. They briefed the nannies well on what I was looking for and helped me to understand how tweaking my specification would impact on the number of people who would be interested in my role.
The calibre of the nannies that Harris Recruitment put forward was far above the standard of girls I was sent by other agencies in the initial stages of my search.
Jayne was excellent in providing guidance and reassurance when I felt as if I would never find the right nanny. The background information provided the organisation of the interviews, the checks done on the nannies and the two-way feedback after the interviews was extremely useful. Interestingly, my nanny is standing beside me as I type this and she shares these views from a nanny’s perspective, she was never sent to jobs that were not suitable and was always well briefed on the family’s requirements. She only used Harris Recruitment for this latest search because she knew that her time would not be wasted and that the families would be carefully matched to her requirements .
Mrs L D, Manchester
Thank you Harris Recruitment for helping us find our great nanny and for all the “behind the scenes” work that goes on in doing so. I found our conversations very helpful and you were very understanding of our situation. Thanks again and best wishes.
Mr & Mrs B, Leeds, Yorkshire
Working with Harris Recruitment was a delight from start to finish. I found the whole process very efficient and Julia found me a wonderful candidate. I felt she completely understood what I was looking for. I would highly recommend anyone to use Harris Recruitment.
Z S, Nursery Owner, Herts
Having recently used them for the first time, I would have no hesitation in recommending The Housekeeper Company. A suitable candidate was interviewed within 2 weeks of my first making contact, and another week after that I had recruited a housekeeper.
Julia and her team were warm and helpful, providing me with lots of guidance and advice to guide me through the process.
They swiftly found a housekeeper who is perfectly suited to our requirements and they continued to provide professional and helpful support until she was settled in.
V D, Herts
I would like to say how impressed I have been with The Housekeeper Company from my very first contact.
It is clear that you really understand your business and the people you are working to place in housekeeping positions.
I would definitely come back to you again in the future (although hopefully will not have need to return for some time!) and additionally am planning to recommend you to a friend locally who is starting to think about employing a full-time housekeeper.
Thank-you for all your assistance.
S F, Berks
I am just so happy that we found The Carer Company. I was extremely concerned to find the right carer for my mother. I am so extremely delighted with the charming helpful, supportive domestic worker found by the Carer Company. She is the answer to all that I need. She is just like family to my mother and I am so fond her.
T B, Birmingham
The service I received from The Housekeeper Company was excellent. I had my initial conversation with the company on the Monday and had our new Nanny / Housekeeper working with us on the Friday. She is lovely, has fitted in really well and is exactly what we were looking for. This is by far and away the best service, (personal, professional and incredibly helpful) we have received from a nanny / housekeeper agency and would highly recommend them.
S H, Dulwich, London
I would just like to thank Julia and her team for the support that they have given me to finding a job with such a lovely family. They have been absolutely brilliant and nothing seems too much trouble. Even though I am going into a new job they have assured me they will always be around for a chat or any problems which may arise big big thank you again what a fantastic set of ladies well done to the Housekeeper Company.
I found The Housekeeper Company online, and contacted them, they contacted me and interviewed me and got to know me and the position I was looking for. Julia and her team were very helpful when applying for positions, within a matter of weeks The Housekeeping Company found me my dream job. Julia and everyone at The Housekeeper Company thank you again for helping me find my dream job!
We used The Housekeeper Company to recruit a part-time gardener / handyman to work in our busy, family of 5, household. This was our first experience of employing someone to work in our home and we were fairly apprehensive about the recruitment process and anxious to get the right person for the job.
The Housekeeper Company made the process simple from start to finish. After providing details of our requirements we were sent CVs for 5 candidates, all of whom had relevant experience for the role. The Housekeeper Company had already conducted a first interview process and undertaken reference checks. All we needed to do was meet the applicants and decide which who was the best fit for our family.
The entire process from very first contact with The Housekeeper Company to our new handyman/gardener starting work took less than 2 months and was far simpler than we expected. We were extremely pleased with the process and would definitely recommend the service to anyone.
C W, Cheshire
We have used The Carer Company to find help three times in the last 5 years, the last two occasions we employed fabulous Companion/Carer’s from them.
On all three occasions they provided incredibly sensitive and intelligent help, asking pertinent questions and understanding my specific needs extremely well.
We have always used two or more agencies whilst searching for a carer for my Grandmother and The Carer Company has consistently performed head and shoulders above the others in terms of communication, provision of clear details, CV’s, photographs and references.
Finding a person to live in is a complex process, which relies heavily on the agencies, understanding of an individual’s character and needs and Julia has been very intuitive in her understanding, even though we have only ever spoken on the phone.
The quality of all the candidates she puts forward has always been extremely high and met our specific needs but also given us a creative range of people to choose from. Their provision of all the paperwork needed to make the whole process as easy as possible, contracts, employment rules, insurance etc. is also key. I couldn’t recommend them as a company highly enough.
