About Catabase Private

The seed of Catabase Private began in 1997 when Sean O’Connor formed the parent company, Catabase Associates, to provide first-class staff to the restaurant and hotel industries. With a well-regarded reputation, their client base grew considerably, with clients such as Le Manor aux Quat’Saisons, The Savoy, Dorchester and Cliveden, South Lodge, Langshott Manor and the Goodwood Estate. 

 After one client requested that Catabase Assoicates staff both his private motor yacht and new London townhouse in 2009, Catabase Private was created to offer a greater focus on the demands of private household. Catabase Private is a dynamic household staffing agency specialising in both front and back-of-house staff and our consultants have comprehensive experience in the hospitality sector and have all held management positions, giving them a unique understanding of the private staffing industry.

We are here to provide as much information as possible to allow clients to make the right choice when selecting domestic staff for their homes, within the U.K or overseas. We provide the complete range of positions, including as Private Chefs, Butlers, House Managers, Estate Managers, Housekeepers and Chauffeurs, but are there constantly, behind the scenes, offering support and advice. 

With all corporate work hours only ever increasing, more and more professionals are turning to staff to assist with their home-life chores whilst they get on with their business we exist to support our clients to make the very best private staffing appointments.
