Hire a Domestic Helper

 

Domestic helpers are hired by clients to handle various tasks at home. While they commonly work as independent contractors, domestic helpers may work for staffing agencies and are matched with corresponding clients according to their request. 

 

When it comes to hiring domestic helpers, it is crucial to gain clarity about the job specifications. The qualities of a domestic helper should ideally match that of the client and their families. What is the language used in the home? Will the domestic helper be responsible for caring for a baby, a child, or an elderly family member? Will there be any task that would involve the domestic helper driving or running errands for the family? For clients and families who travel often, will the domestic helper be required to come along or be a caretaker of the home while the family is away? It is essential to be clear about the responsibilities expected of a domestic helper. 

 

Responsibilities of a Domestic Helper

 

The responsibilities of domestic helpers depend on the needs of the client. Domestic helpers consult the client to learn about specific tasks. One of the primary duties of domestic helpers is housekeeping. They may be assigned to clean particular rooms or areas of the house. Sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting furniture, and cleaning windows are typical tasks. Domestic helpers determine the appropriate cleaning agents and chemicals to use to prevent any damage to the property. 

 

Also, they may do the laundry, fold, and iron clothes as necessary. Domestic helpers cook meals. Before doing so, they must be well aware of any food allergies of the family members. Other responsibilities may include running errands, lawn maintenance, and caregiving. They may take care of children or elderly members by assisting them in their daily activities.  

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Domestic Helper

 

To qualify as a domestic helper, candidates must have a combination of hard and soft skills. There is no formal educational background required for the position. However, it is helpful if candidates have a high school diploma or GED. Clients have the discretion to require prior work experience. 

 

Ideally, candidates for domestic helpers have cleaning, packing, and cooking skills. Some clients may require domestic helpers to assist in taking care of children or an elderly family member. As such, caregiving skills are also necessary. Knowledge of CPR and First Aid are important as well. 

 

Furthermore, candidates must have excellent interpersonal skills. As domestic helpers engage with clients and their family members daily, candidates must be able to listen well to the client’s requests. They must have the ability to follow written and verbal instructions. The candidate must have the physical stamina to work on their feet for extended periods and occasionally lift or carry heavy items as required. Lastly, candidates for the position must be honest, reliable, dedicated, responsible, and patient.
