Maid Required

Postby Hopi1212 » Tue, 11 Jan 2011 8:34 am

Hi there,Looking for a short term maid 3-6 months. Very tidy family with a 2yr old boy. Need all the usual - cleaning, ioning, some western cooking but the main priority is our son. Would ideally like someone who would be willing to have only every second sunday off. Paying $450 - 500.

For that short of a term, you may not be able to import a maid, so you will have to use a local maid or a transfer maid possibly. This is gonna cost you around $15/hour and she will probably require every Saturday off and it's gonna cost you in the neighbourhood of 1500~1800 month (if local) There are a few that provide local maids listed in my links page in my signature below. You might be able to find a transfer maid, but you are looking at approximately $1000/mo all in including levies, insurance, medicals, etc., etc. providing which the maid is willing to work a short term contract at all.

Maybe some others have some suggestions. Be careful of those foreign maids who are currently working for others and are willing to work for you as well. It is illegal and both they and you could be in a big deep pile of brown stuff if caught.
