The average household runs at a very fast pace, the kids need to get to school, followed by staples of homework. The kids need to have a bite to eat with sports activities in-between. In the meantime, the parents try to juggle careers and households. Fortunately, domestic help is available! Without domestic help, many a household would have crumbled! Domestic help and cleaning jobs serve mostly at household level, but cleaning jobs are also available in the public, institutional and educational sectors. Domestic help assists with household management and domestic tasks, and domestic help may even be required to assist with basic cooking and au pair duties. Cleaning jobs are entirely aimed at cleaning residential, institutional, commercial or public buildings. Domestic help and cleaning jobs often need to be undertaken without supervision, although teamwork is relevant especially for general cleaning jobs.
Domestic help employees are usually employed permanently, but cleaning jobs tend to be on a contract basis.
