What do I Pay Domestic staff as monthly salary? What rates are fair?

Domestic and hotel workers wages vary based on factors such as

  • Age
  • Years of experience
  • Skills
  • Educational qualifications,
  • If the staff is going to be a live in staff or a live out staff?
  • Transport fare(if he/she is a live out staff)
  • If the candidate is combining 2 or more roles.

Example:

  • Chef/Steward Vs just Chef, or Nanny/Housekeeping Vs just a nanny role caring for kids
  • Demands and supply
  • (The average going wage for that job category
  • You can easily go through candidates’ profiles to see what most candidates post as their going rates to get an idea of what is currently fair.

What is the Difference Between a Live in Domestic staff and a Live-out Domestic staff?

Live in workers are those who reside on full time basis within the premises of the employer. Live in workers are usually more convenient for employers because they do not arrive late to work and are easily reachable any time of the day. Being a live-in staff also helps workers save money for personal projects or ambitions, better and faster.

Live-outworkers are those who come from their homes daily. Most come from their homes by 7:00am everyday and close in the evenings around 5 or 6pm back to their individual houses. People who do not like much interference or the presence of third parties in their houses especially during resting hours in the evening; usually prefer Live out workers.

This is mostly ideal for singleswho need workers for only Saturday cleaning, employers without kids, employers with small families, families with grown up kids or people who do not want workers on a full time basis.
