Job offers workers £4,400 a month for people with no experience – but nobody wants to do it

A JOB offers £4,400 for inexperienced workers, but nobody wants it.

The manager of a cleaning company based in Sydney, Australia, says they have been forced to raise salaries after struggling to find new cleaners for the job.

Absolute Domestics’ Joy Vess told The Daily Telegraph her company has increased the hourly rate to $45 (AUD) – just over £25.

She explained that starting salaries are now around $93,000, which is just under £52,500.

And that means cleaners could now be making up to £4,400 a month as the company desperately tries to fill the gaps.

She said: “I can see it’s making a difference now…the applicants are just excited.

“Since mid-2021 I haven’t been able to find enough cleaners to service the business, in some areas I don’t market at all – Bondi, Manly, I don’t advertise at all because I can’t get cleaners there at all.

“Nine months ago I increased the hourly rate to $35, but that didn’t fix the problem, so I increased it to $45 an hour three weeks ago.”

She added that despite the pay rise, she’s still struggling to find staff for some areas.

She has also urged the government to allow international students to work more hours.

Meanwhile, she’s not the only one struggling to find workers given Australia’s labor shortages.

Companies in the country’s mining division have offered jobs with £80,000 starting wages and £7,000 signing bonuses to find staff.

Available positions include auto electricians in Queensland, which could start with a salary of nearly £80,000 ($140,000).

The vacancies also include automation engineers, metallurgists and geologists – all with salaries ranging from £57,000 to £73,000.

And some other companies offer a £7,000 ($10,000) sign up bonus and a £3,000 ($5,000) referral bonus.

And an Australian MP has asked fruit pickers to step forward to sort this season’s bumper crop.

MP Anne Webster called the lack of staff willing to take on the £4,000 job a “tragedy in the making”.

Ripe fruit is left to rot on the ground due to a lack of labor – and that could cost the country millions. Job offers workers £4,400 a month for people with no experience – but nobody wants to do it
