5 Best Maid Agencies in Singapore 2022 for an Easy Helper Find

Image: Maid-Power

This article is all about providing those looking for hiring a helper with some options of reliable maid agencies [updated 2022] to check out.

Nobody can deny that trustworthy agencies can make our helper hiring experience more pleasant though there is no guarantee that they will supply “perfect maids”. When foreign domestic workers come from different cultures and backgrounds and are human beings with different characters and mindsets, we can only look for the “best match”.

And we understand how important it is for busy people to hire a helper. That is why we have compiled a list of dependable maid agencies to help you save your “doing-homework” time.

They are all MOM licensed agencies with many years of experience in the industry and with no demerit points. Their placement volume, transfer rate, and retention rate are better than the industry average (as stated by MOM’s website in February 2022).
