I am having difficulty reaching the candidate I am interested in, what do I do?

A Bear in mind that some of the candidates are still under employment. It may therefore be best to call them in the evening. Also, often the candidates do not have credit on their phone, so if you do not get through the first time, send an SMS and call an hour later!

What are the rules for hiring a domestic helper?

We are asked regularly and would like to clarify the legal requirements of the UAE law with regards to the employment of "domestic servants":

to sponsor the employee on your visa

to pay the employee a monthly salary in a timely manner, of no less than the legal minimum per nationality

to give the employee a weekly full day off

to give the employee one month of paid holidays per year with a plane ticket home

Failure to comply can lead to legal prosecution, fines and even a prison sentence. Please email us for further information and please respect the law.

How much should I pay the maid / nanny?

Salaries vary tremendously from one family to the next, by employee nationality and experience. On average we see salaries ranging from Aed 1500 to 2000 per month, but you will find the candidates’ expected salary on their CV. You can then add on an optional year-end bonus (one month), paid holidays as per the law, return tickets home and if you wish uniform, food allowance etc. Do not forget that if you have the perfect maid, it may be worth your while giving her a generous package to keep her in your family.

The minimum salaries as dictated by the law are:
Filipino nationals AED 1400
Indian nationals AED 1100
Sri Lankan nationals AED 825
Indonesian nationals AED 800
Bangladeshi nationals AED 725

Where do your helpers come from?

The candidates who post their CV on our website are mostly based in Dubai. This has the advantage that you can avoid costly travel and visa expenses, and have the opportunity to organise a face to face interview! The CVs posted on our website are for helpers on cancelled employment visas with NOC, visit visas or tourist visas. MaidCV.com does not endorse or propose maids that have absconded from previous jobs.

Can you help me with visas?

Of course! Please visit our Facebook page to find detailed step by step instructions on how to obtain a visa yourself. You can also delegate this task to a PRO (Public Relations Officer) who can handle the process from A to Z, ask your employer, you most certainly have one.

Should my helper wear a uniform?

This is entirely up to you – often helpers appreciate being given work clothes. We can recommend fantastic uniform suppliers.

How much does it cost to get a driving licence for a helper?

That really depends on whether they already hold a driving licence, for how long, and whether they pass the test first time round. You are looking at a minimum of Aed 3000 + transport to the driving school, and it is a timely process.

Can you help me with training for the maid?

Yes, The Perfect Help runs a comprehensive list of trainings on housekeeping, laundry, etiquette, cooking – everything you need! Simply visit www.theperfecthelp.com

What trainings should I put a new maid through?

We strongly recommend the Essentials of Housekeeping course which is given in your home for a cost of Aed 600, as well as the Essentials of Laundry to avoid major disasters in the house.

Does MaidCV.com draw commission from the maid or the client when a maid is confirmed?

MaidCV.com only serves as an online database for maid suppliers and agents. We do not draw any commission from our members other than their membership subscription fee. We do not draw anything from the candidates.

How do we proceed with recruiting a maid?

Once you have chosen your candidate, you will need to sign a contract with the maid and place her on your visa.

How long will the maid data be kept in the database from the day it is created?

In order to provide our clients with the best service, we need to keep our database free of obsolete data. We regularly check and ensure that posted candidates are still available.
