5 Essential Steps for Safe Domestic Staff Recruitment

Safe Way to Hire Private Household Staff with Forbes Private Staff

Looking to hire domestic staff for your home and family? It can be a daunting process, but with the right approach, you can find a candidate who is the perfect fit. At Forbes Private Staff, we specialise in helping our clients navigate the world of domestic staff recruitment. Here are our top tips for finding a trustworthy and reliable candidate:

1. Conduct Multiple Interviews
It’s important to get to know the candidate before making a decision. Conduct at least two interviews to get a feel for their personality and background. Invite a friend or family member to join you to get a second opinion.

2. Trial the Candidate
Trial the candidate before you hire them to ensure they are a good fit for the position. This will give you insight into their behaviour and how they interact with your family.

3. Check References
Checking the candidate’s references is crucial. Ask for both a personality and work reference to get a well-rounded view of their character and experience.

4. DBS Check
A DBS check is a government check that shows criminal history. We recommend that all clients request a DBS check for any candidate they are considering. This is especially important when hiring staff who will be working with or around children.

5. Additional Background Check
For extra peace of mind, consider doing a detailed background check on the candidate.

6. Trust Your Gut
Even after following all of the above steps, it’s important to trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t ignore it.
