    Anyone leaving HK with a good helper to leave behind?

    Hi. I am looking for a Filipina helper, preferably from a family leaving HK. We have an existing helper who's taking care of my 2-month old baby so I need someone who can cook and do the rest of the chores. Please let me know of any recommendations.

    Thanks!

    I posted in the Helper forum about my friend's former helper, Blanka. She comes highly recommended and is available now. Please check out the post titled Great Helper for Hire.
    thanks

    Hi Honkyblues, thank you for your referral. I however would wish a helper whose present employer is moving out of HK to make it easier to process the papers (no need for an agency) as I am in immediate need. Reading your message, it seems that Blanka finished her contract which would require an agency and for her to exit HK whilst processing.

    Don't think it requires an agency if she's finished contract. And I think exit from HK can be deferred for one year in cases of finished contract, employer leaving for good or death of employer.
    Someone please correct me if that's wrong.

    HonkeyBlues is correct. You don't need an agency and she doesn't need to exit if she's finished the contract.

    Oh really? Then that's good news. Thanks, Rani. (My thinking was that the need for an agency is waived only in special circumstances like death of employer, financial difficulty or relocation - ??????)

    HonkyBlues, kindly PM me her details. Thanks in advance.
