Maids and Nannies in Jeddah

royalty-free-maid-clipart-illustration-1114847If you are an expat working in Jeddah it is very difficult to legally find additional help to keep your home clean, the washing done and even the children looked after.

Many people hire  maids illegally as there are many available that have run away from abusive or non-paying sponsors, these maids can be very good or you could end up with one that is dishonest.  We advise if you decide to go this route that you take a copy of the maids passport before allowing her to work so if something is stollen you have recourse.

You will also find that many will ask for wages that are above the normal rates.  Most Saudis pay in the region of 1300 SAR per month for a maid who is given room, board, medical, and plane tickets home (usually every 2 years). Freelancing maids will ask 1500 to 2000 per month or in some cases even more as they know that your options are limited.  The freelance maids will have several jobs and will only come to your home for certain hours on certain days.   The hourly going rate for housecleaning is about 20-25Sar per hour.

When searching for maids you have several options, you can try to obtain one via a manpower agency, look for ads on the internet placed by those looking for work or you can place your own ad advertising you need help.  Many times when you move into a new apartment maids will come knocking at your door seeking you out to see if you need house help.

Please note:  It is possible that some agencies will NOT allow expats to sponsor maids, you will need to call the agencies and ask them directly.
