Noteworthy is that you are required to provide your own cleaning supplies. Alternatively, the Maid will do the stocking for you and you pay for it. Interestingly, our agency’s housekeepers can often recommend great products and tools.

What Are the Benefits when you Hire Maid London?

There are a lots benefits when hiring a housekeeper. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Your Home Will Be More Hygienic and Healthier

Obviously, a key benefit of hiring a maid is that your home will be cleaner, healthier, and more hygienic. If your home is not cleaned regularly, bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms can build up and create a less healthy environment.

You Can Entertain More Often

Having people over can be great fun but it can also be incredibly stressful. There are of course so many different aspects of organizing to focus on when entertaining that it can be easy to feel stretched thin. Also, when you hire housekeeper, they can help you to prepare your home and get it tidy and clean so that you can focus on what is more important. Last but not least, they will help you clear up and clean afterwards.

It’ll Help You Relax

We can all agree that it is much more relaxing to be in a clean environment than to be in a messy and chaotic one. When you come home after work, all you want to do is relax after a long day. Needless to say, if your house is a complete mess, it can actually add to your stress levels.

Maid Agency London’s Housekeepers Will Increase Your Productivity

Actually, having a clean home can help to make you more productive. This is because your home is more organized and it’s much easier to find things you need. On top of this, having a clean home can help to keep you more mentally organized as well.

On top of that, you won’t have to be putting nearly as much of your time into cleaning yourself. This means that you can focus your energy in the directions that are most important to you.

A Clean House Can Help Spark Your Creativity

Living in an unclean environment can really put a damper on many aspects of yourself, including your creativity. Interestingly, when you live in a clean home, however, it can help to spark your creative juices. You might find yourself envisioning a new furniture layout, considering new decor ideas, or coming up with innovative storage solutions.

Housekeepers from the Maid Agency London Can Help Keep Peace in Your Home

Having an unclean house can actually lead to more fighting within families. When things are missing, misplaced, or generally chaotic, it can lead to tension within a household. When you hire a housecleaner, you might find that the general vibe in your house has gotten much calmer and more pleasant.

You Have More Time to Do What You Want when using our Maid Agency London

Maybe a few people enjoy their weekly cleaning tasks. However, most people would rather be doing something else. When you hire a housecleaner, you have more time to do what you actually want to do. Imagine the luxury to outsource those things that are necessary but not necessarily your first choice when it comes to activities.

A Clean Home Has Many Psychological Benefits

At the end of the day, having a clean home can lead to you having better overall well-being. It is therefore important to invest in having a clean home every day so that you and your family can live your best lives.

We actually love all Filipina housekeepers UK

Interestingly, we have seen a rise of Filipina housekeepers, carers and nannies in the UK over the years. Unsurprisingly, this is a trend that really has not changed. The Filipina Housekeeper or Nanny is as popular as ever. Whether it is in a formal or an informal household.

Amazingly, in 2001 the UK Census recorded 40,118 people born in the Philippines living in England. Comparatively, in 2011 the recorded figure was 117,457. In 2015 the equivalent figure was 132,000.

Filipina community in London

Needless to say, the largest Filipina population in the United Kingdom is in and around London. However, other towns have significant communities. Of course a large number of Filipinos are employed in the domestic staff sector. Some work in private homes and some in the hospitality industry.

Filipinas Housekeepers – the happiest

Did you know that Filipinos are supposed to be the happiest people on earth? This is according to many studies. Also, they are known to have a work ethic that is much appreciated globally. Interestingly, you can find Filipina domestic staff working all over the world. Often they work in London and the UK of course. Sara Vestin Rahmani and her team are very fond of Filipina staff. Needless to say, they take great pride in placing Filipina housekeepers with clients around the UK.

Background of the Filipina housekeepers UK

Our owner, Sara Vestin Rahmani spoke to several of our lovely Filipina housekeepers about why they came to the UK. Interestingly, many of the housekeepers came with their employers who brought them here from Hong Kong and the Middle East. In recent years we have also seen a rise in housekeepers who initially went to work in Spain, Italy and other European countries first. Uniquely, many of them have gained degrees such as nursing. Then they took the big decision to leave their country and family behind. Most of the housekeepers Sara spoke to admitted that, of course, the reason for leaving home was to find well paid work. Thus, being able to send their salary home to help their families.  We can totally understand how their trip home once a year is something they look forward to. We absolutely love Filipina Housekeepers!

The popularity of Filipina domestic staff is hardly surprising

Unsurprisingly, we have learnt that our Filipina housekeepers and nannies are valued and treated with the respect that they deserve. We hear so many lovely stories about how Filipina Housekeepers and Nannies help to bring up children. Moreover, they help to keep homes to the highest level. Similarly, they keep everyone well fed – even your dog!  It is no wonder that they are valued for their calm but caring personalities. Amazingly, they they still go back and visit families and children they have looked after.

Domestic Worker visas for Filipina housekeepers

Filipina Housekeepers

Filipina Housekeepers

Something that many of our clients don’t know is that it is now almost impossible for a Filipina housekeeper to come to the UK to work. This is because it is now not possible to get a Domestic Worker visa if they do not already have a European passport (or are married to someone with a European passport). However, we have an excellent selection of Filipina housekeepers UK to chose from.

About Filipina Housekeepers

Uniquely, Filipinas have been brought up with strong family tradition, they come from tight knit communities where mutual respect are instilled from an early age.

English is taught in schools as one of the two official languages of the Philippines, the other being Filipino (also known as Tagalog). Also, many housekeepers from the Philippines speak Spanish as they will have worked in Spain before. Thanks f course, all our Filipina housekeepers speak fluent English.

Why employ a Filipina housekeeper:
  1. First of all, they have a good work ethic
  2. Secondly, they are loyal and honest
  3. Thirdly, they are efficient and experienced
  4. Moreover, they are discreet
  5. Last but not least, naturally very caring

Sara Vestin Rahmani at The Top of Her Game

Sara Vestin Rahmani at The Top of Her Game

By ALEXANDER BURTON | NEW YORK

Published 30th November 2012

Intro: Sara Vestin Rahmani One of London’s finest entrepreneurs and self-made female heroes, Sara Vestin Rahmani, talks to me about her business and some things private.

Sara Vestin Rahmani launches her Yacht school in London, UK and France-By Sarah Lee for the Guardian

Sara Vestin Rahmani launches her Yacht interior training school in London, UK and France

Background Sara Vestin Rahmani

Sara Vestin Rahmani, born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden isn’t one for taking the easy route. As a graduate hopeful in the mid 1990s, she was forthcoming in literature and the arts and received various awards, scholarship proposals and the likes. Instead she decided to postpone her studies, spread her wings and commence work as a Nanny in the UK. A job that is a far cry from the glamorous life she leads today. “I didn’t want to be a nanny forever. However, it was a great opportunity for me who had no money, to see the world and work. I don’t regret it for a second. Furthermore it gave me the idea to start my first business”. Sara Vestin Rahmani says: “You really have to work hard. But if you embrace the work, the children and the family, like I did, it is such a rewarding gig.”

The story, step by step

Sara and one of the managers

Sara and one of the managers

Sara Vestin Rahmani, who’d been an all-Swedish Author hopeful from a young age, stands only 5″ 5 tall. However, with her statuesque body and her trade mark high-heels, she looks every inch the amazon super woman she is. Sara is a beautiful, smiley and down to earth woman. Needless to say, it is truly remarkable what she has achieved at such a young age. She was once predicted to become a praised author as she showed early signs of being a unusually gifted young lady. With her creative mind, talent in writing and  driven persona she was set for the stars. But her teachers dreams were dashed when Sara left Sweden and her studies at the tender age of 18.

Sara Vestin Rahmani – The road to success

However, and as we now know, it wasn’t all for nothing. Today, Sara Vestin Rahmani credits her teachers support of her creativity for the fortitude that launched her career in London. Needless to say, her talent has led to worldwide success. She started her first business in 2003 from scratch in her living room in South East London. “I remember thinking that if I could just break even the first year, I’d be so happy”. I didn’t even own a lap top or a blackberry. Interestingly, I literally only had a stationary computer and a landline that I used for calls. “By the 50th cold call, the confidence started to build”. ” Failure was never an option for me. I genuinely always believed and still believe that I will succeed in whatever I lay my hands on. Call me crazy but it’s worked so far.”

Vestin Rahmani and her staff

Today, Vestin’s elite 10-person office team and her fleet of 50+ trainers has about 2500 clients, with a median account size of £17 millions. Impressively, Vestin ranks between 20th and 4th on various lists of The Top 100 most influential Women in Business across the world. She works alongside some of the best copyright, Intellectual property, franchise and lease lawyers in the world. Moreover, She is sharp as the sharpest of knives and I do believe that if you get on with her, she may become one of the best people you ever meet in your life. This woman has super connections all across the globe. She socialises with celebs, the HNW and V VIPs. Moreover, she is invited to all the top parties and premiers across town on a daily basis. Tough life? I don’t think so.

A day with Sara

Sara Vestin Rahmani wakes up with business and the market on her mind: “My dogs and I watch the business news between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m and determine what kind of a day we’re going to have.

By the time Vestin Rahmani arrives at her office, she’s usually handed numerous e-mails and calls from clients. However, she tells us that the vast majority of clients get handed to one of her impeccably motivated staff. This comes as a result of Sara having  less time on her hands than before. However, Sara still cares for a small number of HNW individuals whose needs she will always see to. She says: “I’ve looked after them for years and these people are directly or indirectly responsible for my success. Thanks to their networks and recommendations so I don’t charge them any fees. Some get my time and expertise for free, knowing that it will be worth it in the long run”. A pretty comfortable work position to be in, especially during the recession I say.

What about the economic downturn?

Hard at work, at her desk-Sara Vestin Rahmani, the brainchild behind the success

Hard at work, at her desk-Sara Vestin Rahmani, the brainchild behind the success

Sara Vestin Rahmani says the market’s latest turns “has not made me nervous,” “Especially given our clients are almost exclusively VIP, celebs and super rich as we are not that faced by the economic downturn. Having said that, due to the Olympics, we had an unpredicted summer and it was slow as everyone seemed otherwise occupied and didn’t want to spend any money. So we are making up for it now. ” Vestin is currently working on new contracts int he far east (mainly mainland China). The demand of late follows on from a stream of PR autumn 2012 in the News and TV.

Time Management

Most of the day to day business are run by account managers in the office. Needless to say, Sara spends the vast majority of her time signing new business and develops new areas of revenue streams. This is something she tells us with a smile that she does best. “The fantastic emerging-market business flow and international exposure of late will probably keep me busy for the next few years. Obviously, it is as exciting as it is rewarding for me. I get to use the creative left side of my brain and I love the feeling of taking on new ventures. Seeing where they end up later is always exciting.  I never quite know how it will turn out and I don’t follow and rules or guidelines so it’s always an enjoyable ride”.

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Private life

Meanwhile, Sara Vestin Rahmani is increasingly turning to an alternative lifestyle. She enjoys daily meditation practises, a great deal of yoga and plenty of “me time” with her dogs out in the woods. ” I find that the equilibrium between being in the city, working and playing hard (like I do) is mixed with time out for me works really well. Obviously, I enjoy my quite and peaceful times. Equally, I love going out to fine restaurants, staying in hotels and drinking champagne with my friends”. A habit she insist she is unlikely to kick anytime soon.

Sara Vestin Rahmani – Her own domestic staff

Like most business women today, and in line with her clients, Vestin has a team that help her manage her life. She has a dog nanny, PA, Housekeepers, Gardeners, Yoga teacher, Business consultant, acupuncturist, French teacher and also a massage therapist. Sounds excessive? Sara says: “Well, you know. I don’t have any children yet (other than my business and my dogs) to spoil. You can think of it as caring for an investment or something you love and care for that needs looking after for it to thrive. I need to be on top form and shape in order to perform. Of course, I also try and look as good as possible for media purposes, business relations and public affairs.

Charitable work

However, I must stress that we also give a lot of money and time to charity. I dread to think that people look at me as someone too flamboyant”. Sara’s business’ Charity of choice that she is deeply involved in is called operation smile http://www.operationsmile.org/

Sara Vestin Rahmani-Always in the lime light

Sara Vestin Rahmani – Often in the press

Sara Vestin Rahmani sits on various exec boards across the world and supports a number of other business and charities as well. She has future plans of starting her own foundation but that is a later chapter.

Summary

SOME TEN YEARS AGO, Sara Vestin Rahmani joined an industry dominated by males. She remains the rare foreign female elite. The business “hasn’t changed that much in terms of foreign women being successful,” she says. “It’s probably gotten worse, at least in the UK and with the recession and little room for change.” Ultimately, Sara sees her gender as a benefit in relating to clients. “A lot of ice is broken once I’m sitting in a room,” she says. “People are very interested in who is this person in front of me. I am easy-going and smiley so that helps. But having said that, often people don’t think I do business. Moreover, they get surprised when they realise I am who I am”

And finally

There’s plenty to hear about it, but don’t expect Vestin to do all the talking, at least not at first. She says the best first meeting is one in which she doesn’t talk so much. Everyone has a story to tell, and Vestin wants to hear it. She loves business and personal travel where she gets to meet influential people from all across the world and get inspired.

Well thank you Miss Vestin, it has been a true pleasure to chat to you. She shakes my hand and wishes me well before she skips along to her next interview (filming with sky news)

Sara Vestin Rahmani and her team will find you a top house manager today

House Managers UK for hire

House Managers UK for hire

House managers UK

House managers UK

First of all, we obviously offer a section of top House Managers UK for hire. Importantly, no job is ever too large or small for us and we are able to help fine households across the UK. We also source house managers and estate managers for homes overseas.

What is a house manager?

Uniquely, a house manager is responsible for handling the daily operations of a house and responding to the home owner’s needs. Interestingly, house Managers typically supervise and manage things happening daily around the home. Also, a house manager is a person who is in charge of your private home. Actually, some people get them mixed up with butlers. Having said that, the two professions’ duties often overlap. Either way, the role has changed dramatically over the years. Below, we highlight some differences.

The role of a Butler

  • First of all, formal table service.
  • Secondly, service of drinks.
  • Thirdly, valeting.
  • Moreover, care of the wine cellar.
  • Furthermore, cleaning of silver.
  • Also, care of fine antiques and art.
  • Sometimes supervising other staff.
  • Of course, general management of the home.

    House managers UK

    Sara Vestin Rahmani and house manager

Modern House Managers UK may perform:

  • Needless to say, house management.
  • Also, housekeeping management.
  • Often driving.
  • Sometimes cooking.
  • Of course, staff management.
  • Also, renovations projects.
  • Interestingly, very often PA work.

Modern House Managers UK for hire

Needless to say, our agency offers the best Modern Household Managers UK around. More than anything, they need to be multitasking and resourceful. Importantly, our clients want for hands-on individuals and thus, we cater for this. Furthermore, our clients prefer house and estate managers who are not particular about their duties. Instead, they appreciate it when a House Manager is happy to multi task. For example, he or she may act as Chauffeur, Personal Assistant and Events Organiser. Noteworthy is that in the countryside, the Butler or house manager may need to posses even further skills. Strangely, some are expected to have to to gain knowledge with shoots and care of guns. Appreciated is also the ability to organise a shooting weekend.

House managers UK

Our house managers UK are the best

Of course, household Managers often need to be highly computer literate as they do PA duties. Funnily enough, they are sometimes asked to speak a second language. Also, flexibility is needed and he/she may need to travel with their employers and run multiple homes.

How much does a House manager cost?

As you can see above, you may be asking for a tall order. As a result, entry level House Managers UK will start at £40K per year whereas experienced staff will want £45k and up to £70-80k in the UK. Sometimes even more. Surprisingly, overseas they may require £80k and more. So needless to say, you pay for luxury, expertise and finesse. As well as flexibility and total home bliss.

Will my House manager be trained?

More importantly is that you hire someone experienced. Having said that, our agency runs one of the world’s most famous butler and house manager school.

Last but not least, Bespoke Bureau is here to help. Call us on +44 2032900142 or info@bespokebureu.com or visit www.bespokebureau.com

Moreover, other surfaces should be cleaned when they look visibly dirty.”

Cleaning and Disinfecting When Someone Is Sick

However, if someone in your home has COVID-19, you will need to take extra steps to disinfect surfaces to reduce the spread of the virus, Sara Vestin Rahmani informs us. Importantly, choose an EPA-approved disinfectant for COVID-19 and use goggles and gloves to protect yourself during use. Furthermore, in this aspect, open windows for ventilation. Also, wash your hands thoroughly after disinfecting surfaces. Furthermore, always use disinfecting products according to the directions on the label. Moreover, use extra precautions with dishes, eating utensils, and trash that a sick person has been in contact with in your home. Of course, extra disinfecting is still needed during the first 24 hours after a sick person no longer needs to be separated in the house. However, after three days following separation, you can return to your normal and routine cleaning procedures.

Testimonial from an ex student who was looking to find Silver service stewardess training

 “I trained with The British Yacht Academy this spring.  Despite spending years in the industry, this course taught me new skills and gave me confidence.  I learned silver service perfection and really enjoyed the real life setting on the 5 Star yacht in London.  The course was fun and interesting. The teacher was very engaging and hands on.  I made friends for life. One of the other girls even travelled to Antibes with me after and we now work on the same Motor Yacht. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start a career in Yacht interior Service and to those already working on-board. ”
