What the press have been saying about Irving Scott

We noticed that domestic staffing agencies were not providing the bespoke service and attention to detail that was needed. We decided to set up Irving Scott as a boutique domestic staffing agency more responsive to clients’ needs. Irving Scott is “…as good at psychology as it is staff” (Sunday Times): we do this by carefully and skilfully matching candidates to your needs, always putting forward only the best candidates.

"The highest level staff"

“The estate manager is the highest-level staff in the private sector,” says Paloma Irving of Irving Scott, a high-end domestic staffing agency in London. “They often have security or asset management or an IT background. Houses these days are extremely high tech: they have home cinemas and gyms and indoor pools, electronic gates and security systems, several tier garages, safe and plant rooms. An estate manager has to know how everything works across several properties.”

"The perfect match"

The one thing they had not anticipated is that the people manning their homes, many of them furloughed or fired, would choose not to be there when they landed. “It’s particularly housekeepers, the starting point of all big homes,” says Paloma Irving who runs the exclusive recruitment agency Irving Scott, “they’re gold dust”.
