Polo & Tweed

Polo & Tweed provide a specialist service in domestic staff recruitment and domestic staff training. Based in Mayfair, London, we work with a global network of clients in private homes, hotels, restaurants, chalets and yachts.  We approach our services from a unique and fresh perspective. It’s not the bottom line that drives us, but the desire to satisfy and provide the very best service we can to our clients.

It might sound a bit cliché, but we would much prefer to keep a happy client for life rather than just work with brand new clients each time.  Our ethos is what drives us, and makes Polo & Tweed one of the (in our opinion) friendliest and eager to please agencies.  Why not try us out and see for yourself?  We aim to reply to email/calls within 24 hours, and when you call us you won’t get through to an annoying call centre or computerised systems. Our receptionists are highly briefed and excel in customer care and interaction.  We love talking to both clients and candidates and believe that both are as equally important.
