In 2013, my husband and I, together with our two girls, moved back to Singapore from Norway because of our job postings. Due to the longer working hours and commute time vs Norway, having a live in helper became a necessity rather than a luxury.
We were lucky with our first helper. However in late 2014, my helper was transferred to another employer as I was expecting and she was not confident of taking care of the baby plus my two girls. During our search for a new helper, we had to change a few helpers in 2015 before we finally found the one. Changing of helpers is a very stressful and time consuming process. We were often frustrated by the poor level of service or pushy agents or the lack of full truth from the agencies we came across.
We are very appreciative of having a good helper who lends us a helping hand, takes care of our kids, daily household chores and prepare simple and tasty meals. We understand that finding a good helper is dependent on luck but we also realize that having a good agency who takes time to understand the employers’ requirements and the competence and expectations of their helpers is equally if not more important.
Hence with that as the background, Best Housekeeper is started with the aim of providing professional quality service to both the employers as well as the helpers. Our focus is mainly in placement of experienced helpers (transfer or ex Singapore).
We hope to assist you soon.
