FAQs

What is Staffpad and who are you guys?

We help businesses across all industries hire the staff they need by providing the first exclusive platform for job seekers to find jobs with live-in accommodation.

What is live-in accommodation?

Jobs that include live-in accommodation, employer provided housing, tied-accommodation or staff accommodation is when your employer provides you with some form of housing accommodation in return for working at their company.

Why do employers provide housing to their employees?

Primarily in order for workers to carry out their jobs effectively, such as obscure working hours, onsite requirements or location. Accommodation may not be easily accessible for employees, nor may it be affordable in particular areas. Companies may offer it as a perk or incentive, and may utilise the benefit to gain an advantage over their competitors.

Do you offer help with VISA applications?

Unfortunately we cannot help with any VISA applications at this stage. Most employers require that you have a Right to Work in the UK before applying for the job. Your employer will have their own internal requirements for how they choose to offer housing. This could be in the form of providing the housing for free or at a subsidised rate, and will put forward their own rules and policies regarding contracts, tenancies and deposits. 

I have 1 bedroom that I offer to my staff, is Staffpad for me?

Absolutely. Staffpad caters for anyone that offers housing to their staff, of any size and industry. Even if you are a household offering a job for a live-in cleaner, Staffpad will help you find the right candidate.
