Mar 3, 2008
There are several ways in finding a domestic helper in Hong Kong. Most of them are very practical because they can be part of your everyday activities, thus, you don't have to exert extra effort in finding a domestic helper. While some ways require research and screening, especially the web-based ones which can take up much of your time. But whichever way you choose, there is no guarantee that you will find the right qualities of a domestic helper you are looking for. So it is better to use one or more of the following ways in finding a domestic helper.

Referral is a great guarantee in hiring a domestic helper. Your friends and relatives can refer domestic helpers, or your maid can refer her friends and relatives who are willing to work for you. This increases your trust that the domestic helpers you will hire have good character.

The mission of the traditional agencies comes in. Traditional agencies are responsible in looking for the right domestic helper you want. The employer sets the requirements for domestic helper while the agencies look for the perfect, or even closer, match. The agencies are doing the preliminary screening and evaluation after which they prepare the necessary documentation before the employer hires the domestic helper. This is a convenient way of looking for competent and qualified domestic helpers.

With the fast changing technology, online domestic helper websites in Hong Kong is becoming a trend. Such websites provide profiles, photos and other personal details of the domestic helpers willing to work for you. And based on the database available, thousands of qualifications can match your requirements, and there is always an option to do advance searching. This function enables thorough screening on the part of the employer until you find the one you are looking for.

In finding a domestic helper, another useful venue is a forum. The employer can clearly communicate his requirements for a domestic helper, and maids who are interested can easily inquire and respond to the posting.

On the other hand, a passive form of posting advertisements is through bulletin boards in public areas and establishments like in Park N' Shop and Wellcome superstores. There are popular spots where domestic helpers regularly check for job postings, and some maids even form an organization for regular access of new job requirements.

If you prefer to hire a domestic helper with the same values and religion, then the church congregation is the best place to look for. Relating with the domestic helpers from the same organization easy and reliable because you get to casually interact regularly though the gatherings.

And lastly, if you are residing in a big residential estate, the domestic helpers normally come to your place offering their services. Therefore, it is very helpful to post your domestic help vacancy in your building's bulletin board.
