The definition of a bodyguard is a person or group of people employed to escort and protect an important or famous person.

The word is synonymous with the movie starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Huston in which he is charged with protecting Whitney, her family, and their property.  In many ways, this portrayal is correct barring the knife fighting in the kitchen and falling in love with your client, it is a bodyguard or Close protection operatives (CPO) “as we prefer to be known in the UK” job to protect their principle (Client) from harm. This is done in many ways as depicted in the movie, researching your client followed by a full risk analysis, identifying potential threats, weaknesses and any particular areas that you can act upon. Hiring qualified and experienced staff to carry out specific duties and, in this modern age in-depth background checks of the original staff and in some cases any family where necessary. Installing Physical, electronic barriers like gates, cameras, and sensors, but overall putting in place procedures that will endeavor to make an attack on your client so difficult it’s not worth doing. 

Training, or educating is something that is lacking from both sides of this equation, training oneself to avoid any rust and working with your principle on the actions that will be taken in case of emergency and, understanding soft skills that avoid escalating a situation.

Finally, the best CPO’s are, dedicated, drilled individuals constantly vigilant, resourceful and prepared for every eventuality. A person with a plan for each situation they encounter and not just a beefed-up Doorman pretending to play the part.

When considering hiring private staff we always ask our clients to carry out a self-review, what we mean by this is how much time, effort and resources are they utilising efficiently or not. Then we can suggest the correct action to put in place to maximize efficiency.

The Cheshire Group researches, sources and carries out full vetting on all of our candidates before we place them into any household, this way we can ensure all staff are of the highest calibre. An example of a typical large home will employ a cleaner, nanny, gardener to name just a few. Clients will have to manage, pay and organise all of these separate assets whilst carrying out their normal everyday work. They may have found these individuals themselves, through someone’s recommendation or via internet/ social media searches. We ask how they verify their credentials, or carry out criminal background checks?

When carrying out a self-review, we ask our clients to list the areas where they require assistance, they note how many hours it’s taking for the staff to carry each task out and what administration they needed to complete it. A large estate for example will have at least ten staff of both full/part time and contracted. This in itself may generate problems, on how to manage, communicate, and deal with issues properly. This is where an effective estate manager comes into their own, putting policies and procedures into place to minimise disruption to any estate operation. Some clients tend to utilise staff in dual roles such as housekeeper as nannies, personal assistants as estate managers and chauffeurs as security.  This this can be an effective cost reduction process; however, it may reduce staff effectiveness, and potentially endanger the client, and their family.

Whilst considering hiring private staff we recommend that clients must always run mental risk analysis. For example, the cleaner hired because they were recommended and liked during the interview, that’s great the family. Then they decide to employ them as a nanny/housekeeper to save money, but this may not be the best option for your family safety.  The chauffeur they hired who has years of experience with a large intimidating stature cannot be their personal security whilst carrying out driving duties. Personal assistants although experts in multi-tasking have one duty, and that’s to directly work with the client, arranging meetings, booking hotels, restaurants, travel plans, taking calls writing emails and responding to enquiries within their remit, to have to manage an estate and all the problems associated with it on top is a mammoth task.

A well-structured, qualified and, effective team of private staff is always the best solution, choosing the best people to provide those services is always the most cost-effective low risk option. The Cheshire Group removes all of the risks associated with recruitment, staffing, operation and, security. A stress-free solution in a hectic world, we provide leading industry standards to high net-worth individuals, celebrities and, sports personalities.

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.
