What to Check When Looking for Transfer Maids in Singapore

by Helpers .sg

Transfer maids refer to overseas maids who are already living in Singapore and are seeking fresh employment. These maids are in high demand as they already have the necessary documentation to work in the country and their employers do not have to run around getting fresh documents.


If you are looking to hire a transfer maid, it is prudent to go through a maid agency. That way, many of your concerns will be addressed. Nonetheless, you should also pay attention to the following:


Find the Right Maid Agency

Rather than searching for a transfer maid, approach an experienced and licensed maid agency in Singapore. That way, you will get a choice of transfer maids. You will receive profiles of the maids and based on that, you can shortlist a few maids for a personal interview.


When you go through an agency, you do not have to worry about getting a background check done. The agency handles it and this gives you peace of mind knowing that you are getting a reliable and trustworthy maid.


Interview the Maid

Once you shortlist three to four maids from the list provided by the agency, invite them to your home for a face-to-face meeting. It will enable you to check if you like the maid and she has the necessary skills to do the work you want her to do.


Some of the tasks that maids perform in Singapore are shopping for groceries, cleaning, and dusting, doing the dishes and laundry and looking after children and the elderly. Some maids may even cook family meals. The maid should be adept at these tasks. Also, ensure that the maid can converse in your preferred language and use appliances and gadgets without a problem.


Ask for References

While the transfer maid may come through a maid agency, do not hesitate to ask the maid for references. It would be best to get in touch with past employers. Call them up to find out if they were happy with the maid. If yes, find out why they let her go. If not, ask for the reason.  


The last thing you need is a maid who flits from one job to another. That is not a good sign and does not speak highly of the maid’s loyalty and dedication. Also, check the other countries that the maid has worked in and ask her to present past employment records from employers in those countries.


These are some of the factors you should consider when you are looking to hire transfer maids. While the maid agency in Singapore will do the grunt work for you, it is advisable to also do your own research. That will ensure you get the right maid, one who is diligent, hardworking, and honest, and can become a valuable member of your family.
