How much should I offer to pay the Helper?


  • It is your decision how much to offer to pay for each job. The higher you price the job, the more interest you are likely to receive.
  • You have the option to set an hourly rate or a fixed-price for the job. You will also be asked if you want to pay over-time, ie. will you continue to pay if you return home late. The amount you offer may depend on who you are inviting to the Job (i.e. age and qualifications of the helper) and the specifics of the job, i.e. four children need feeding, bathing & putting to bed vs. one toddler already asleep in bed!   Hourly rates posted & accepted average between $15-$30p/h
  • Helpers have two options in replying to your job invitation: (1) Apply or (2) Not Available. When a helper selects Not Available they are required to select one of the following reasons (1) Too short notice (2) Calendar clash (3) Too far away (4) Price too cheap.
  • The responses of all invited helpers are summarised for you, allowing you to judge if you have priced your job appropriately. You can decide to increase the price and repost the job.
