A relative newcomer on the luxury recruitment field, Hire Society was founded in 2012. Since then, they have built a reputation for making quality placements for all levels of domestic staff or management roles. What truly makes them unique is offering a mix of both corporate and residential positons.
In today’s Agency Spotlight, Aleth Boisset tells us more about this robust agency…
1. How long have you been in business?
Hire Society is a boutique staffing agency that specializes in the areas of home, administrative and executive job placement. Our clients are comprised of private residences, corporations, and high net-worth individuals, all seeking stellar and superior candidates to bring onto their respective teams.
At present, we have three offices; our flagship on Madison Avenue in New York City, our second office on Main Street in Bridgehampton, NY, and our third in Palm Beach on Worth Avenue. Though each office maintains its own members of leadership and subsequent team, all locals work collectively on many if not all assignments.
2. What makes your agency unique?
Hire Society prides itself on its outstanding and unified team. Unique to our agency is the past hospitality or private home experience brought to the table by each individual employee. Though other agencies serve similar clients, none have the background and level of hands-on understanding that all Hire Society staff possess.
3. What types of positions do you place?
Our position titles fall under one of two categories, “Corporate” and “Domestic.” Each client, company and home is unique. What one may title a “House Manager,” another may title a “Personal Assistant,” “Executive Housekeeper,” or “Estate Manager.” Thus, it is important to always keep in mind the specific needs of each client and what job requirements and specifics they are looking for. Though the title may seem most important at first, it is only a minor detail as compared to the responsibilities noted under each listed job.
4. What is your ideal candidate?
An ideal candidate to Hire Society is one that takes esteem pride in his or her work and loves deeply their specific field of service. He or she will have excellent longevity in all roles, outstanding references from both current and previous employers and an incredibly hands-on attitude where no task is too vast or too small.
5. Do you place across the country or locally? If so where
Hire Society is everywhere our clients both want and need us to be. With three locations across the US as well as recruiters stationed globally, we have the ability to source and place candidates not only in the United States but throughout Europe and worldwide.
6. Do you look for any special training or certifications, such as college degrees, private service schools, etc
College degrees, certifications and additional trainings are of priority when speaking to the requirements our clients uphold for their respective positions. Thus, any candidate who brings to the table a robust array of training and education most certainly has an upper hand.
7. Where do you announce your open jobs?
Available positions for apply can be located on our website, www.HireSociety.com, on Estate Jobs, Career Builder, LinkedIn, and an additional assortment of genre-specific posting portals.
8. How should a candidate apply for a job? Do you want an online application, resume or both?

9. Do you belong to any professional associations?
