Placement of Transfer Maids

Hiring Transfer Maids in Singapore

What are Transfer Maids? Basically, they are maids currently working in Singapore but due to their contract finishing soon or their current employer do not require their services any more as their children are much older. Another common reason is their current employer is leaving the country for good, hence the maid will be out of job soon and needs to transfer to a new employer.

What are the benefits to hire a transfer maid versus a maid not currently in Singapore?

2 main benefits, higher cost savings and also the ability to have a face to face interview with the transfer maid. We always encourage face to face interview because it’s the best way for the employer to gauge the maid’s sincerity and interest level to work for them through observation of the transfer maid’s body language during the face to face interview. Another reason is chemistry which is quite difficult to judge over a phone interview.

Another benefit of hiring a transfer maid is that it’s probably the fastest way to get a maid to join your family.

In order to transfer, the transfer maid will need a consent letter from the current employer. If the transfer maid is leaving on good term with her current employer, the employer may also give a reference for her. But even if there isn’t any reference or testiomonial for the transfer maid, it doesn’t necessarily mean she is bad. It could also be that the current employer is too busy to write a testimonial but may be open to a quick phone call if you need some reference to give yourself more assurance that the transfer maid is the right fit for your family.

In the past, there was a misconception that transfer maids are unwanted maids, hence they are on transfer. Over time, more and more employers of transfer maids have come to realise that isn’t necessarily the case all the time.

Beware of transfer maids that have too many months of placement fee. Too many means more than 2 months placement fee or some would call it salary deductions. If they have 3 or more months of placement fee, high chance is she is an inexperienced transfer maid or what we call fresh maids in the industry. Not only will you have to cough up more in upfront payment, you might actually be caught with a fresh helper that needs a lot of attention and training. Don’t be blindly attracted by the slightly lower salary they will command just because they are on transfer. And don’t forget about the amount of time to train her too.

The best kind of transfer maids are those that have completed at least 1 contract of 2 years. They will only have 1 month placement fee and they will be sufficiently experienced to adjust to your household. But as different households have different routines, do not hold too high expectations that she will need zero guidance. Her English language will also be better which makes communication with her smoother when passing her instructions.

Transfer maids could be of any nationality... they could be Filipino Transfer Maids, Indonesian Transfer Maids, Myanmese Transfer Maids and even Indian Transfer Maids. Collectively, we just call them transfer maids or maids on transfer.

Transfer maids are usually available for face to face interview on their day off which is usually a Sunday. The face to face interviews will take place at our office which is conveniently located in the central part of Singapore, Orchard Road. The exact address will be #03-52 Lucky Plaza.

Once we have noted down your requirements, we will proceed to match suitable transfer maids to your family. After the interview, if you decide to confirm her, we will require full payment upfront and will proceed to submit the Work Permit application to the Ministry of Manpower on your behalf, also depending on the maid’s release date.
