Why Are Employers Hiring Filipino Maids?
Maids from the Philippines or Filipino Maids remain a top popular hiring choice compared to their counterparts from Myanmar, India, Sri Lanka and Cambodia.
Firstly, there are many Singaporeans who prefer to hire a helper who can speak basic English for ease of easing their domestic helper into the job. With easier communication from the onset, many Singaporean families choose to hire a maid from Philippines as it is believed that they can speak basic English, to easier understand and familiarise swiftly with Singaporean employers’ home care needs.
In addition, due to the warm nature of the culture of Philippines, Filipino maids remain a top choice, with many employers choosing a Filipino migrant domestic worker to care for infants or children. Their friendly disposition and warm nature also eases them more easily into their caregiving role.
Thirdly, a lot of Filipino Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) are known to be more willing to provide care to infants and children. Their ability to converse well with children is also have believed to help younger children take to them more quickly and easily.
All maids from the Philippines have to go through nationalised basic training from their country before their arrival in Singapore. Migrant Domestic workers from the Philippines must undergo training administered by the country’s Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). This particular training programme ensures Filipino helpers are able to perform fundamental household duties and with this, Singapore Employers are also reassured that basic standards are maintained in terms of training of their Migrant Domestic Worker.

Hi I would like to give our sincere compliments to Gni from Island Maids in Yishun branch. While we are new in hiring helper, Gni made the process very smoothly and fuss free for us. She provides prompt and reliable advises to us, and we secured our preferred helper eventually. Throughout the hypercare period (the first 2 weeks), Gni provided great help in resolving minor conflicts / communication gaps with the helper. We are very happy with the helper selected as well as the service rendered by Gni.
It was our first time hiring a helper and we were clueless. We were served by Seven (at AMK),he explained to us every single detailed properly and ensure we are not stress about anything. He even keep in touch with us after we had our helper to ensure we are coping well.
In order to employ a domestic maid for my home, I went to AMK Branch Sales Manager Ng Di Shen (Seven). He carefully and thoroughly outlined the selection maid criteria. When we have faced any problem, he assists us extremely professionally by talking to the maid. He always stands with the owner's perspective to assist in problem-solving. After we have hired the maid, Mr. Seven is also a service Oriental to do the follow up with the maid performance. His office phone number is (655) 7703.
A big thank you to Island Maid AMK branch consultant Shana for recommending Masiroh to our family. It has been almost 1.5 months since Masiroh joined us, and she has been a pleasure addition. A great help in the family with house chores and looking after my parents-in-law in their 80s. We feel reassured having Masiroh look after mother-in-law who needs to go for dialysis treatments, in our absence. Additionally, Shana has just helped us to hire another helper, Putri, to help my own elderly parents. She is just 4 days old at home, but proving herself to be reliable and a great help in the family too. Thank you Shana for taking the time and effort to understand our two families’ needs and recommending Masiroh and Putri respectively. Regards, Joyce
