Re-locating to Abu Dhabi or Dubai and need to create a team of private domestic staff for your new home? Entrust this task to the best household recruitment specialists in UAE: Irving Scott. Covering Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, we offer services to find the finest domestic professionals in the market, skilled to meet your individual requirements.
With Irving Scott, finding the right family driver, house manager, chef, nanny and private personal assistants for your Arabian home is a breeze. We cover every step of the process, from an initial interview to assess requirements, right through to following up with both parties when the candidate has completed their trial period. We have local knowledge and wide expertise in the region. Our experience ensures reliable, bespoke staffing solutions for every client.
Depending on whether we can find the right person locally or whether we prefer to send you a candidate from elsewhere, our turnaround for these positions can be as quick as 21 days. Our standards are very high and we only send candidates that we know will do a sterling job and will be comfortable in the environment. Furthermore our human resources department briefs the candidates about their forthcoming position.
Short-term contracts are fixed and mutually beneficial. There is transparency for the client who is made aware of the total cost involved. Meanwhile the employee will often continue paying contributions in their home country and thus will be responsible for their own tax affairs. At Irving Scott we can advise both client and candidate about this aspect of the recruitment process which can seem complex at the outset.
If the candidate has local knowledge from a prior position, a reasonable adaptation period for most domestic positions would be 3-4 weeks. However if the candidate is taking on the role without having resided in Oman, Bahrain, Dubai or Abu Dhabi before, it is sensible to extend this period to 6 weeks in order to give both client and candidate the opportunity to make the position their own.
In the unlikely circumstances that the client’s relocation falls through or the destination is altered, Irving Scott have a flexible approach which always puts a positive spin on a delicate situation. Candidates can be encouraged to embrace the change of location and clients can feel comfortable in the knowledge that Irving Scott will handle their situation diligently.
