    Helper agency recommendations

    Hi, I am looking to keep a full time live in helper for for taking care of my 10 month old and doing the household work . My current helper will be finishing in dec and so I am in a fix to keep someone quickly. Can you please recommend agencies from where I can recruit a full time helper and how long will that take ?

    My helper is from Arrow Employment Services. I think they are great - not overly commercialized and actually takes the time to follow up to see if things are going well. The visa process takes 6 weeks or so so you should contact agencies soon to have someone come in time for Dec, unless you are looking for someone who is already here.

    I second Arrow. You can read my full, updated (over the course of about a year) review of them here.

    I spent a lot of time looking at agencies in HK and never came across any agency that can match Arrow.

    Our helper is still with us and will finish her first contract next April. She has been amazing and is talking about coming back to work for us for a second contract. I have absolutely no complaints about her attitude, work ethic, ability or trustworthiness. She has really grown to be a part of our family and we appreciate her so much.

    Arrow dealt with us in such a great manner. They are not perfect and you can read the review about that but man, at least they have the right heart and attitude with how they deal with both employer and employee--rather than simply looking at the domestic helpers as "product" to "sell" to the "customer."

    Here's their website. Hope you hire a great helper. It can make a huge difference.

    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
