The 10 Best Maid Agencies in Singapore 2015

Looking for a maid agency? We’ve done the hard work for you.

No sooner have you made the difficult decision to hire a maid to provide you with a much-needed second set of hands around the home, you face the seemingly insurmountable task of recruiting a maid agency to help you find the ideal fit for your fam. A couple of weeks ago we published a comprehensive guide to finding a good maid agency in Singapore, within which we shared some top tips for finding useful data and facts to support your search.

Today, we have gone one step further and actually performed the search for you (kind souls that we are). anas part of our efforts to help Mamas and Papas successfully hire quality domestic helpers, Singapore Baby is pleased to publish for the first time our unique annual maid agency ratings.  

As we highlighted in our recent article on what to consider when choosing a domestic helper, the Ministry of Manpower publishes data on maid agencies. That’s great, but how do you cut through the noise and sort the wheat from the chaff?

Before we reveal our ranking of the top 10 maid agencies in Singapore, it’s probably worth going through the boring process by which we analysed and sorted the data.

So, in your quest for the perfect maid agency, you are looking for the following:

Just wanted to leave this here for others like me (moving London to Singapore in Sept’16). https://services.mom.gov.sg/eadirectory/

  2. Sakura Agency will transfer their maids even they know that the maids has problems. I was given a maid that was tested positive for VD. The previous employer returned the maid to them after they found out that the maid had VD. Instead of sending the maid back they transfer her to my family.
