A British business has launched an innovative new app for homeowners looking to hire household staff which ‘cuts out the middle man’ with 0 per cent recruitment agency fees.

The Marlin App has been introduced to the private staff sector which means owners of large country houses or mansions can recruit staff quicker than ever before.

Homeowners or estate managers can search for candidates worldwide and contact them directly through the by phone or email to discuss job opportunities, including internationally.

They can search through the App for free and have the option to pay a low monthly subscription fee. This will provide the individual with complete access to all of the candidates that are registered on the Marlin App.

The Marlin App is completely free for candidates who can download the App from the App Store or Google Play and register in only a few clicks. All the job seeker has to do is enter basic contact details, a profile picture and fill out their previous work history which will then be verified by Marlin.

Marlin App founder Demos Demetriou said: “For me, the recruitment industry as a whole – not just for private household staff – needed to change. It has been outdated for some time and needed a shake-up – a way to streamline and cut costs is required which is why we have introduced the Marlin App.

“It means households can find quality staff directly at their fingertips with 0 per cent agency fees. The Marlin App cuts out the middle man completely and puts the homeowner or estate manager directly in touch with one of our candidates, who will still be screened by our team.

“Homeowners looking for a private butler, chauffeur, nanny, landscaper or PA can search for free to start with and then pay a low monthly fee for unlimited access. The Marlin App is revolutionising this sector and the feedback we have had from households has been excellent.”
