What is the average salary for a helper?Good question! As a flexible platform, Yaya encourages open communication about salary between you and your potential helper. Every nanny or maid on Yaya has their desired salary outlined in their profiles. The range can vary significantly, typically spanning from 1500 to 5000 AED per month. The best part about finding your helper through Yaya? Every penny you spend goes directly towards their salary, not agency fees. This way, fair compensation is always front and center.
Can I hire a helper from Yaya for part-time or temporary work?Absolutely! Yaya is proud to offer a flexible platform that caters to diverse needs, allowing you to find helpers for full-time, part-time, or even temporary roles. This means that if you only need a helper for a few hours a week, for certain days, or a short period, Yaya is here to help. However, it's important to note that employment laws and regulations regarding part-time or temporary work vary from one region to another. Therefore, before hiring a part-time or temporary nanny, we strongly advise you to familiarise yourself with your local laws and regulations to ensure compliance.
Are the helpers sponsored by Yaya?Yaya, like the helper themselves, is here to assist! While we're not an agency and do not directly sponsor the helpers, we are fully committed to facilitating the process for you. Legally, the employer is responsible for sponsorship, and we're aware that can seem daunting. But don't worry, there are services that streamline this process, making it simple and fully online. Need a hand? We're more than happy to connect you with these services to ensure everything goes smoothly. Yaya is with you every step of the way!
