    Domestic Couples

    Responsible for managing the household’s inner workings as a well-oiled team, domestic couples work together to a provide full spectrum of domestic support for clients.

    Overview

    The domestic couple is most often a married couple, based on the employer’s property, and capable of responding to a range of your service needs. The responsibilities of the domestic couple can vary, depending upon a particular client’s unique requirements and needs.

    The demand for domestic couples has always been strong but is now a rapidly growing segment of the housekeeping and property management staffing assignments.

    How they will help

    Domestic couples are ideally positioned to accomplish a dual role. Traditionally, the male partner of a couple would perform more intensive manual tasks such as grounds-keeping and general maintenance while the female partner would take care of housekeeping and interior duties. However, with changing roles in modern partnerships and also in modern households with increasingly varied needs, domestic couples are an ideal multitasking division of labor in the form of a two-person team, who typically divide up their areas of expertise depending on their individual skills and talents.
