About Us

The Housekeeping Agency was established in 2012 by Samantha Cliffe.

With twenty six years experience in the industry, which includes working as a nanny and housekeeper, Sam has also run a professional ironing company, and spent a few years working as a housing support worker for people with mental health issues and young people leaving care.

With her experience in private households, Sam has gained an insight into both the expectations of the employer, and the employment process. She understands the importance of matching the right candidate to the right household to ensure a successful placement.

Sam is passionate about using her skills to ‘put the right person in the right place’, providing a personal service to all clients, and using her vast knowledge of the market to offer advice and guidance to both clients and candidates alike.

The Housekeeping Agency provides high calibre staff, and a first class service, where clients and candidates choose to return.

Our Happy Clients

”I am pleased to say that I have found my perfect Nanny, all thanks to Sam! I approached a few agencies previously, but found this one to be the most efficient and reasonably priced. Sam is a lovely lady who considered all my requirements and found me a few good candidates, one of whom was successful. I am most happy to recommend Sam to future clients, and I will approach her again in the future if needed”

“We contacted The Housekeeping Agency as we were searching for an experienced housekeeper with high standards – a cut above those offered by regular cleaning agencies. Samantha noted our brief carefully and within days had provided a short list of CV’s to review, and arranged interviews shortly after. All the candidates interviewed were exactly the kind of person we were searching for, and one fitted the bill absolutely perfectly. We sincerely hope that our new housekeeper will be with us for many years, but we wouldn’t hesitate to use Samantha and The Housekeeping Agency again if the need arises”

Ann-Marie, PA, Chobham

“Sam is a professional approachable lady, who seems to connect the right candidate to the right vacancy. Having worked for the same family for several years, I found it very daunting going to interviews, but Sam put me at ease and after my first interview I was offered the position. Hopefully I will not need her services again, but if I do, there will be no hesitation, The Housekeeping Agency will be my first port of call”

Ann, Weybridge

“The Housekeeping Agency was extremely helpful in finding us a housekeeper/nanny with whom we are very happy with. Sam went out of her way to help and was available at all hours and weekends in order for us to find the right person. I would highly recommend this agency as Sam definitely went the extra mile”

Leigh Coleman, Weybridge

“”The quality of candidates from ”The Housekeeping Agency” was excellent. I like the fact we could trial the candidate for a day. Sam provides a useful service for a reasonable fee”

Deborah Wilson, Esher

“I have been in the housekeeping industry for over 30 years. I haven’t had to use an agency until last year and although I contacted and spoke to many, none seemed to cater for the employer or employee, until I met with Sam! I was treated with first class service and after just one interview was offered a perfect job with an amazing family. Sam knew the needs of both parties and filled requirements on both sides. First class service from start to finish”

Heidi Sedgeman

“Sam was efficient, reliable and reassuring throughout the process of finding us a housekeeper. She appeared to think carefully how candidates would match up with families and, as a consequence, we have been very happy with our new housekeeper”

L Davies, Oxshott

“Thank you for finding me a great position and your excellent service. You are so much more friendly and personal to talk to than other agencies”

Pinar Celik, Guildford

“I have been delighted by the service provided to me by The Housekeeping Agency. When I initially approached Sam she took a detailed briefing as I was quite specific in what sort of housekeeper I was looking for and Sam followed through and came up with exactly what I was after. Very impressed as I did try a couple of other agencies who were clearly unable to find anyone to my specification and therefore did not even bother coming back to me. I would highly recommend Sam and The Housekeeping Agency if you are looking for quality service”
