Domestic Helper recruitment agency listing
Domestic helpers are typically employed by a household - either a family or an individual - to assist with day to day duties. The term can be used to describe a number of positions, ranging from cooks to cleaners, childcare providers to care givers.
In some cases, employment will include living within the household that is being served. Other domestic helpers will have set hours that they are expected to follow and will live in their own accommodation. It is possible to have multiple jobs at the same time.
The duties that are to be carried out should be outlined in the contract presented at the start of the employment, as should whether or not the domestic helper is expected to wear a uniform.
Recruitment agencies will not look for specific qualifications when looking for domestic helpers, although experience in certain areas will be advantageous. Workers can expect to be contracted during their employment.
The average wage for staff in this sector will vary depending on the tasks that are to be completed and whether or not accommodation is provided. However, the National Minimum Wage must be adhered to, which currently stands at £6.19 per hour for anyone over the age of 21.
