2.Choose a maid


  • Employers select maids who meet their requirements on our website. 
  • Or we recommend the right maids based on the needs of the employer.

3.interview and contract signing


After the employer has selected the candidate, contact us and we will arrange the video interview. If you need interview assistance, you can go to our office and ask staff for assistance. 

The interview is in order to understand the maid's family background, working experience , and help the maid understand her next work environment, job duties, salary, offday, etc. After the two sides confirmed the employment relationship, they signed the contract at the store, and the staff began to assist both parties to go through the following procedure.

4. Arrival time.

At present, we provide helper mainly from four countries to families in Singapore. Myanmar, Indonesia, India and Filipino maids. 

Maids in Myanmar(Burma), Indonesia, and India usually take two to three weeks to come to Singapore. 

Maids in the Philippines usually need three to four weeks to come to Singapore. (Individual cases are to be discussed at specific times,might have some delay.)

5. Precautions for personnel


When a maid enters the employer s home, the employer needs to train the maid to provide maid management, introduce the working environment, work duties, and working rules/house rules, eating habits, and rest time. However, for the work requirements not mentioned in the contract, the employer and the maid may negotiate and decide, and the maid has the right to refuse work items that are not included in the contract.
