Leading Transfer Maid Agency

Transfer Maids refer to maids who are in Singapore who are seeking to transfer from one employer to another. They are maids who are currently working with a family but will be available soon for transfer. This could be because they are finishing their contract or because the family may be leaving Singapore for good.

The demand for transfer maids in Singapore has been on the rise, according to this article by The Straits Times. This demand is accelerated by the pandemic situation that is playing out right before our eyes. Because of COVID-19, maids from abroad are not allowed to fly in to and out of Singapore due to air travel bans!

Despite this high demand, very few maid agencies in Singapore have a ready pool of transfer maids at hand. This is where the Universal Employment Agency differs from other maid agencies. As a leading transfer maid agency, the team at Universal Employment Agency is an expert when it comes to the hiring of transfer maids or simply assisting employers with direct hiring of a maid they already know.

With details and data of the maid’s past working history, you can definitely trust that you will be matched with a helper. But not just any helper: one that will be able to meet and surpass your needs and expectations.
