Spanish housekeepers are often seen as a bit of an oxymoron.
Their job description is so limited that the profession has even been given the word housekeeping, a contraction of “housekeeper”.
But the word does refer to the same kind of job as the more formal domestic help.
The word has a Spanish origin, but is now widely used to describe the sort of care and support workers are often paid to provide.
That’s why, in the past couple of decades, the word has come to be used in a way that implies housekeeping duties, which can include the cleaning, cleaning out the kitchen, taking down the toilet, washing the clothes, and so on.
In this sense, the housekeeping role has also become synonymous with the role of housekeeper.
Housekeeping jobs, which are typically part-time, typically last between five and seven years.
Housekeepers are paid £10 to £20 per hour.
They usually work seven to 10 hours a week and typically spend the rest of the week working on their own.
Housekeeper jobs in Spain Although it’s easy to think of the job as an afterthought, the home cleaning, sweeping and housekeeping of the past few decades has been incredibly lucrative for Spanish companies.
The average salary of a housekeeper in Spain was around £14,600 in 2015.
But the pay rose sharply after the Spanish economy crashed and housekeepers have been laid off in large numbers.
A study by research company Euromonitor International found that housekeepers in Spain earned an average of around £28,500 in 2016.
This was down from an average £44,200 in 2015, but the drop was offset by the rise in the number of part-timers.
There was also a significant drop in the proportion of part time housekeepers, who earned around £11,600.
But this may be due to the fact that there are more part- and full-time housekeepers working in Spain.
In the UK, the number and pay of housekeepers has been falling over the last decade.
In 2018, there were just 1,500 housekeepers living in England and Wales.
In 2016, there had been 4,700.
According to Euromonitors, the average housekeeper earned around 20,000 euros (£19,300) in 2016 and £23,000 in 2015 – a decline of around 13 per cent.
However, this was a decrease of just 1 per cent compared with the previous year, and that’s the same for the UK as a whole.
The main reason for the fall in housekeepers is that they’re paid less than their counterparts in other countries.
The European Commission recently published its 2017 Home Care Trends report, which said that the average hourly wage of housekeeping workers in the EU fell by 3 per cent between 2016 and 2018, while the average pay for housekeepers was down by 5 per cent from the previous 12 months.
The UK, which has a population of about 16 million, is currently paying housekeepers between £7 and £12 an hour, while housekeepers across Europe are paid around £9.50 an hour.
What do you do with a housekeeping degree?
It’s not a job that requires a degree, but it does require a lot of work.
There are usually five or six years of part and full time housekeeping courses to complete.
A housekeeper has to work from home in order to complete the work, and most do so with a partner.
There’s usually also a full-timing contract between the two partners.
However the degree is only worth so much, as housekeepers do not have to be paid on the full time.
This means that some housekeepers may only get paid for part of the work that they do.
If housekeepers want to take a part- time job, they have to wait for their contract to end.
But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as many housekeepers find it more profitable to stay at home and help out a family member or friend than they would to get a degree.
How to apply for a housemaid job in Spain It’s a very different experience to what you would expect for a student studying at a university, but that’s because housekeeping jobs are usually part- or full- time.
A Spanish housekeeper will typically work two to three hours a day, with two to four days off a week.
They also tend to work in shifts that last between two and five days, so a householder can be at home from 7am to 5pm, sometimes for several days at a time.
If you want to apply to work as a house-keeper in a house in Spain, you’ll need to meet a minimum qualification and have a minimum of four years of experience.
The job usually requires some practical skills and is usually in Spanish.
If your qualifications are sufficient, the employers will generally accept you.
