Recruiting domestic cleaning maids
Recruiting domestic cleaning maids to undertake the domestic cleaning of your family home is becoming increasingly common these days. The domestic cleaning industry is estimated to be worth somewhere between £4 to £8 billion pounds according to various sources and it is still growing at a very rapid pace.
Many people who decide to use the service of domestic cleaning maids often find that their cleaning maid is unreliable, turns up late, leaves early, or doesn’t even turn up at!
How can you minimise the risk of employing an unreliable domestic cleaning maid?
If you are advertising locally to recruit your own domestic cleaning maid then it is completely in your own hands to check out each individual candidate.
Personally I would recommend that you conduct every interview at the candidates’ own residence, this will give you a good idea of each candidates own personal hygiene standards.
Be careful to look out for tell tale signs of unreliability, with experience these can become only too obvious to you.
Ask to use their facilities whilst you are conducting your interview and take a good look around for cleanliness
Carefully formulate the questions that you are going to ask your candidate to get them to open up about their past work or personal experiences, its amazing with the right questions how some candidates will gladly tell you how they have let various people or companies down in the past!
Make sure that you request and check references from the candidate and always follow them up.
Request identification from candidates to make sure they are who they say that they are!
Request that the candidate obtains for you a disclosure form.
Formulate a written contract for the domestic cleaning maid to sign this should cover various eventualities to safe guard you and your rights but also take care to also safe guard the rights of the domestic cleaning maid.
Employ the cleaning maid initially on a trial basis.
Of course you can always employ the service of a professional domestic cleaning company to do this for you, there are many of these companies up and down the country and most will have rigorously checked out their domestic cleaning maids and so save you the stress, time and effort.
Please feel free to add to my checklist.
