Hiring Staff – Forward Planning & Preparation for Next Year

This is a great time to start planning for next year, especially if there are events and occasions that may warrant professional and experienced help.

Take a look at some of the following scenarios for example and consider how some forward planning could help you, a friend or family member be ready for action next year. By having the right help in place you won’t be left dealing with last minute hassles or stresses:

  • Pregnancy or expecting a baby – Eden can find a Maternity Nurse for as little as 4 weeks or as long as required. There are also temporary emergency Maternity Nurses and Daily or Nightly Maternity Nurses. You may even be expecting twins or triplets and there are specialist Maternity Nurses for that too!
  • Returning to Work/Change in Lifestyle – Eden can find a Nanny, Manny (male nanny) or Norland Nanny for short-term roles, part-time, full-time, live-in or live-out/daily. There might also be the need for a Nanny/Housekeeper, Nanny/PA or Nanny/Groom (did a pony find its’ way on to Santa’s Wish List?!) and for complete support and smooth running of the household a Couple could be the answer or a House Manager who will co-ordinate everything! 
  • Business Projects/Planning – you may be expecting/anticipating a period of intense activity at work or in your business interests. In order to maximise your time, productivity and potential for achieving your goals, consider the services of a Chauffeur/Driver, Close Protection Security and/or an Executive Personal Assistant/PA
  • Family/Children – you may be home-schooling, transitioning from one country’s education system to another or planning for important exams. A Tutor or Governess could be an ideal solution for these requirements
  • Relocation/Time Abroad – you or the whole family may be preparing to relocate or you may be planning for significant periods of time spent travelling. Whatever the circumstances you could for example arrange to take a Nanny or a Tutor/Governess with you or you could put in place Security to manage your property whilst you are away
  • Property Portfolio/Purchase– if are you in the process of purchasing a property/estate or planning a purchase, then you may be seeking to appoint an Estate Manager/Director, a Gamekeeper, Farm Manager or Gardener
  • Special Projects – you may have decided on some major plans for your gardens/lawns which would require the services of a Gardener, perhaps one with specialist knowledge
  • Family Events/Special Occasions – this could be any special event that your family wishes to celebrate such as an engagement, wedding, anniversary, coming of age, retirement. These type of events require a myriad of staff: Chefs, Cooks, Security, Drivers
  • Personal Health & Wellbeing – if you or a member of the family have a planned medical procedure/operation then it may be of interest to engage a Companion/Housekeeper to cover the period of recuperation


In addition to the above examples of the type of staff we can provide we have also been asked to find Yacht Captains and Private Pilots. Perhaps you have a new challenge for us!? We offer a bespoke service and can assure you that we conduct our searches with the utmost discretion.

Whatever you are planning for next year (or the year after!) it is well worth considering in advance employing the right type of professional staff.

We look forward to helping you and please contact the Eden team on 0207 4716000 (from overseas +44 2074716000 for further advice and guidance.
