Many UK business leaders and entrepreneurs are yet to realise the potential of private talent recruitment, aside from London, as we all know the capital is the most culturally diverse area in the UK bringing people, and companies, from all over the globe, yet outside of this those with the wealth are failing to utilise such a tool.

Clients from north America and from the far east have used private staff for decades and so are comfortable with it, however, the British mindset has yet to catch up, preferring to go it alone, grind out the difficulties instead of investing in help. A nanny to help care for and educate the children, a PA to organise and assist work/ life, a driver to take the pressure of commuting, and security that ensures normal daily routines continue without risk.

The continued investment from international companies and the UK government, cities outside of the south-east will see a shift in industries towards cheaper areas, thus bringing workers and jobs with them. This will inevitably see an increase in house prices along with many new local businesses to accommodate them, therefore The Cheshire Group is ideally situated in the north-west, already established, leading the private household industry, whilst raising the standards.

In summary investing in great talent saves time, money, and relieves pressure, having a trusted person around you that works behind the scenes ensuring minimal disruption is priceless.
