The perfect opportunity for independence

I was looking for new professional challenges, and I also wanted to become self-employed in an industry with a promising future and a great deal of potential.

Self-employed in the field of household-related services

Ready for the future thanks to professional development and training

From my own experience, I can say that I am proud to offer others the opportunity to become self-employed in a growing market. One key lesson we have learned is the importance of professionalising our services. We have been able to meet many market demands through ongoing professional development and training. In the future, we are hoping for a new, more positive image for the industry and the people who make it so special.

Lots of families need help and support.

Enabling people to lead fulfilling professional lives while balancing the needs of their families – this is what motivates me every day. And I know from my own experience that it’s possible.

Real help deserves gratitude

Why I enjoy working as a domestic helper:
1. I give older people the opportunity to continue living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
2. I offer young families help in their homes in order to take some of the pressure off of working parents so they have more valuable time to spend with their children.
Peoples’ gratitude for my help is what makes me happy deep down.
“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

Variety makes work fun

I enjoy working as a domestic helper because every day is different, I work closely with my clients, and I get to work independently, stay physically active, and ride the e-bike that was provided to me by my employer.

I never thought that a household specialist would clean so quickly, carefully and effectively. At first, I was a bit shocked at the price, but given the fact that we agreed to invoice their services in 15-minute increments after the initial hour, I was surprised at the end by how affordable it was along with the quality of the work itself. Plus, it makes me feel good and secure knowing that my household helper is paid a fair wage, employed legally, and is still affordable for me. Professional housekeeping can really only be done by professionals – I thought as a qualified nutritionist I was good, but it turns out some people are even better!
