Maids in Ghana (Domestic Help)
 
 
 

Domestic help is readily available. Most expatriates employ at least one domestic. Those with representational responsibilities or children usually employ two or more. Those living in houses may also hire a gardener. A 24-hour guard is posted at every residence. Often, the best way to get good help is to hire someone who worked for a departing expatriate family.

The following types of domestics are available: cook/steward or housemaid (performs all household duties), cooks, stewards, nannies, gardeners, guards and drivers. The salary range is $75-$90 per month for a 5- or 6-day week, less for part-time work. Employers usually provide at least one or two uniforms, and many pay medical expenses. A bonus of 1 month’s salary is normally given at Christmas. A “dash” (tip) is usually paid on special occasions and for extra duty.
