OUR Story

Smart Helpers Center

I once found myself in a situation where my domestic Helper quit without notice just a couple of days before I had my third baby; at the time I had a 4 years old boy and an 18 months, old baby.

With little time on hand, I struggled to find a reliable and experienced Helper that could be hired fairly quickly, at a reasonable placement fee; someone that was already vetted so I wouldn’t have to worry about the safety of my young family.

That was simply impossible! In my search, I realized there were many other domestic employers, who were also finding it difficult to find professional Helpers conveniently.

That is when I decided one day, I would start my own agency and solve this problem.

In 2019, two years later, after an extensive analysis of the domestic and private hospitality industries, Smart Helpers Center was established to bring a professional, excellent, and convenient solution to the hospitality staffing problems that South African homes and businesses face.

    I ordered a once off helper and I was so impressed with the entire process for how they communicate so efdeciently right up to the helper arriving. They sent me profiles of Helper's to choose from and there's is even a video of … More the helper attached where they introduce the self. Then that is followed by a very short and to the point contract where you select all the services you need. I was sent a helper who arrived even before the time I asked for her to arrive, then she was so professional and clean and so precise in everything she did. My house has never been this clean in a while. All of this is a day. The helper even went to as far as packing my cutlery drawer. I didn't even kkow it could be that beat. Smart Helpers centre is the answer to all our helper issues. Great Service, value for money... I couldn't have gotten any better than that on my own.
