Bespoke Recruitment for Luxury Propertiesworldwide
Domestic Staffing is a unique and exciting industry and Silver Swan is here to provide connections and support that are essential to advance your home or career.
Silver Swan Recruitment was launched in 2013 by Philippa Smith.
Whilst working in HR for a prestigious luxury ski tour operator, Philippa noticed the formidable challenge of attracting and retaining top-tier hospitality professionals to work within opulent chalets throughout the ski seasons. Surprisingly, there seemed to be a huge absence of any specialised staffing agency which catered to this niche at the time, and so, in 2013, Philippa took the plunge and decided to fill the gap herself by establishing Silver Swan Recruitment.
It didn’t take long before requests for personnel began to encompass permanent residences, yachts, and jets across the globe, turning Silver Swan into the agency it is today. With a growing team, and an even faster-growing client base, it was clear that our London HQ was slightly too limiting for the global outreach that was developing so we expanded our footprint and established branches in both Dubai, UAE, and Miami, Florida.
Ever since its establishment over ten years ago, Silver Swan has been dedicated to simplifying the process of hiring domestic professionals for discerning clients, presenting passionate individuals with unique backgrounds that reach beyond the conventional.
Our tell-tale stamp on the industry is the personal relationships we’ve fostered with our clients and candidates as we manage the entire candidate selection process from sourcing to offer acceptance.
We’re ever-evolving, open to new ideas, and strive to embrace everyone who’s interested in learning more about private staffing.
We’re committed to providing an honest, tailored and dedicated service to our clients.
