Household Staff

Chelsea Staff Bureau is a leading household and domestic staff recruitment agency. We provide reputably vetted and extraordinary household staff to families and larger estates in the UK and overseas. We have an unrivalled database of over 8000 individuals and a very successful staff placement record.

When only the best will do

With a combination of over 130 years’ experience working across all major industries, our Management team understands the importance of getting household recruitment right. We take the time to fully understand your needs before sourcing and training (where necessary) the best candidates for the job.

Our domestic staff agency consultants are friendly, multilingual and dedicated to providing a quality service with a high level of care to both clients and candidates.

Worldwide Recognition

CSB has been listed as one of the best staffing agencies in the world by US publication ‘Celeb Staff’. Established in the year 1998, we have always been industry leaders in fulfilling domestic and household staff requirements both in the UK and overseas in countries such as Russia, The Middle East, Switzerland and France.

We are also recognised by the institution of the Royal Family who honoured the company with the H.M The Queen’s Coat of Arms in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.


Butlers have a wide range of duties from answering calls to greeting guests. They also assist in the planning of events and dinner parties, oversee table settings and serve drinks and food. They will also (perhaps most importantly) manage the wine cellar. Additionally, a butler may have responsibility over other staff.


A nanny is employed to look after a child in its own home. Your nanny will be responsible for creating a safe, yet stimulating environment for your child and seeing to his or her day to day needs.


At CSB we provide exceptional housekeepers who are flexible, competent and skilled at their required duties.
Trust is essential in this process and families have been trusting CSB to provide professional, fully referenced housekeepers for over 20 years.


We provide both Drivers and Chauffeur’s. A driver simply operates a vehicle, whilst a chauffeur is a professional who is hired to drive. Chauffeurs are accountable for their actions, and as a result, work hard to serve their clients. Many of our chauffeurs are also licensed Close Protection Officers or work with our mobile Close Protection Teams.

Receipt & Dispatch

Receipt and Dispatch Managers are responsible for organising the safe and efficient receipt, storage and dispatch of goods. In this context generally for larger households.


Facilities Managers ensure that properties and their services meet the needs of the people that live or work in them. They are accountable for services such as cleaning, security and parking and to ensure the surrounding environment is in a safe and suitable condition.


Our Residential Security Team (RST) provides guarding (male and female) of private properties and offices to ensure clients are totally protected at all times.

Our Close Protection Officers (CPO’s) keep clients safe from unwanted attention or physical harm. They are responsible for assessing the required security measures based on threat and for providing discreet surveillance.

Our Static Man Guarding security operatives are deployed to protect premises or assets in order to prevent unauthorised access, occupation or damage. They protect individuals against any threat, assault or injury.

CCTV Operatives

Working in a central control room, our CCTV operatives monitor and control surveillance cameras in public places or outside, in and around buildings in order to watch and prevent crime and to protect people and assets.
