Housekeeping & Cleaning jobs

Many no matric housekeeping and cleaning jobs are available in South Africa. The key is to know what you're looking for before starting the job search. Once you know the position you want, you can easily find the right job.

Place of Employment

First, decide if you want to work for an individual or a business. Look for jobs at a personal residence if you want to work for an individual. If you would rather work for a business, you can search jobs at a guesthouse or hotel.

Job Tasks

You also must determine what tasks you want to take on with your job. Some housekeeping jobs require cooking, cleaning, and looking after children, and others even require gardening. It's important to find out what the job requires before applying. That way, you will be certain to meet the employer's demands once you're hired.

Living Arrangements

Decide in the beginning if you want to commute to work every day or find a live-in housekeeping job. Both situations have their own benefits. If you commute, you can go home and relax after work without worrying about your employer making requests. On the other hand, a live-in job helps you save money on room and board. Live-in positions also save you the time that would normally be spent driving to and from work. It's important to remember that if you apply for a live-in job, you will likely have to go through a rigorous hiring process. Private employers will likely want references and may even do a background check to make sure you are the right person for the job. Negative marks on your record may interfere with being hired.

All of these choices might seem overwhelming, but variety is actually a good thing. It means you have many opportunities for getting a job in South Africa. Best of all, you don't have to leave your home to find housekeeping and cleaning jobs. You just need to search online classifieds and apply for the job from the comfort of your home.
