What might be expected when you hire a daily Housekeeper vs a live in housekeeper?
Daily housekeeping candidates earn £12 to £15 net per hour net and expect to work between 3 to 10 hours per day.
Of course, a housekeeper may live in your home. Typically, the rate is then from 500GBP net per week and up. If so, the working hours are usually 9-10 hours a day with breaks in-between of course.
Obviously, a benefit of having a live in housekeeper is that they can care for your home when you are travelling. Of course, there are other obvious benefits too of having someone living in your home. For example, the live in housekeeper will get started faster in the morning. Moreover, you will get to know them faster.
