We are easy going and mostly need someone we can trust and communicate well with in English. Good at cooking would be great because of course we like to eat.We prefer candidates already in Hong Kong and terminated for relocation/financial for easy processing.

If finished contract please let us know the reasons why you don't renew with your current employer.We prefer candidates who could start immediately and defer their trip to Philippines to a bit later once HK government policies are less strict on quarantine and all.This is a stay in job, there is a small but private room and wifi.
