MAIDSin is a company specialized in the recruitment and selection of domestic staff, assisting its Clients in the personalized, secure, and efficient search for experienced professionals. It has been operating in Portugal and the international market since 2009 and has a team specialized in human resources consultancy.

MAIDSin provides a rigorous and professional service, offering guarantees of credibility and security in all recruitment processes it conducts. Therefore, it only accepts candidates with a letter of reference or those whose experience can be verified.

• After outlining the profile and characteristics of the desired employee, MAIDSin conducts a selection of candidates who meet the client's requirements and sends a list of available candidates.
• Subsequently, interviews between Client/Candidates will be scheduled for a final selection, which may be done in person at one of our offices or online. At this stage, the process initiation fee of €30 (VAT included) for national processes and €60 (VAT included) for caretakers couples and international processes must be paid.
• Once the candidate is selected, MAIDSin provides, at no additional cost, all documents, working contract templates, and procedures necessary for formalizing the employment contract. If the Client wishes MAIDSin to handle the documentation completion, an administrative fee of €150+VAT will be charged.

MAIDSin does not establish an employment contract with the candidates; it merely mediates the hiring process.


• Once the candidate is selected to start duties, the amount to be paid to MAIDSin will correspond to the agreed salary amount (+ VAT) between the Client/Candidate. This amount must be settled by the candidate’s start date.
• For international hires, all costs related to travel, visas, and necessary documentation for placing candidates in other countries will be the Client's responsibility.
