In general, all household staff can be a live-in position. Indeed, it really depends on the need of the client, but also the space available in their home. Moreover, for some job, it is more convenient for both the employee and the employer to live in the same place. However, it is important to keep in mind, that a live-in position is usually more time asking, and it is more complicated to disconnect since you are living on your work space. Here are some of the most commune household-staff job that are live-in.
Maternity nurse: For obvious reasons, this cannot be a job where the maternity nurse is not live-in, they are here to help the mother in her first month at home with her newborn. It is something that can be scary and demand a lot of attention and short night. Their work schedule are flexible, they can work at night or during daytime, sometime both. Furthermore, a newborn spent the majority of its time sleeping, the maternity nurse will have to adapt to its schedule. This is the reason why it is important for them to be live in.
Nanny: Having children doesn’t mean giving up on its career and dream. But for that sometime you need a little help.
Why a nanny should be live-in?
In the first place, depending on the needs of the family, they will have to take care of the children, throughout the day, but also manage their life (What they eat, the cleanliness of the room etc.) it can also be required to babysit the children at night on special occasion. It is more convenient to peace of mind to know that if you need it, your nanny is here for you. A nanny can also travel with the family. They need to be available.
Household staff couple: This position must be a live-in. As a matter of fact, they usually have a guardian purpose. They work in huge property, that demand a lot of maintenance. Sometimes, the owners are there only a couple of weeks in the year. The domestic/guardian couple is responsible for everything, If something happen (a water leak for example) the must be on site to handle the problem. Or even to prepare the home last minute if needed.
