Hi, there

Yes, the Foreigner's Work Permit does include foreign maids. For an idea of what Beijing is like for foreigners, why don't you take a look at our guide on Moving to Beijing.

You should research the average pay for ayiin Beijing. When it comes to working for expats, the fact that English is your first language may be in your favour.
