With changing life styles in metros like Mumbai and Pune the requirements of helpers are also changing. We have noticed an interesting trend in lately. There have been increasing number of demands for male cooks in Mumbai and Pune. The demands come from all quarters: Restaurants, fast food centers, company guest houses, bachelors living alone, aspiring actors or body builders who want a cook to travel with them as a companion, and sometimes even families who have a male child.
Reasons for preferring a male cook vary:
1. Increasingly, even married men are living alone in Mumbai and Pune. These married men, or bachelors living alone or actors requiring a travel companion obviously are trying to avoid any possibility of an uncomplimentary situation or accusation just because there is no female around.
2. Male cooks can also double up as supervisors for a guest house. It is safer to employ a male as often there are no residents. which have a lot of outflow and inflow to and from the guest house. And there are many guest houses in Mumbai and Pune requiring such male supervisor cum cooks.
3. Male cooks can also work as handy man or Jeeves for the family, at times taking care of outdoor assignments too, something which a woman helper does not normally do.
4. Often, if there is a young male child at home, and both parents are working for a living, having a male cook gives a comfort of safety when the parents are not home.
Seems like having an online database like Helper4U.in makes it easier for Job Givers to look at all available options when hiring a Helper.
