Job Description

About our family

  • 2 adults, 2 small children (2.5 years and 6.5 months old)

  • Husband and wife work full time
  • 4 bedroom condo in River Valley
  • Love house plants, no pets
  • We have one Filipino helper already, she joined us when our first child was born (~2.5 years ago). Now that we have a second baby and hectic work travel for the couple, we are looking for a second helper to join our family.
  • Friendly and respectful (our helper is family to us), particular about work ethic, work quality and honesty.

What we are looking for

  • Age: 35 to 45
  • Nationality: Filipino preferred (as our current helper is Filipino)
  • Must have reliable and good track record of employment history in Singapore (renewed contracts and strong references are a must)
  • Must have experience with expat families
  • Past experience with small children, should be passionate about childcare and engaging kids, be able to independently manage their play dates and activities
  • Good cooking and baking skills (keen interest for cooking with past experience in weekly menu/meal planning, healthy recipes and a variety of options/cuisines for children)
  • Proactive about cleaning and should enjoy organizing and tidying up the house to a high degree of perfection
  • A green thumb / love for gardening and plants would be a huge plus!
  • Ability to communicate effectively in English
  • Must be comfortable working with and sharing a room and bathroom with our current helper
  • Must be in Singapore already with a transfer/release date in June

What we will offer

  • Very respectful and positive family environment. Any one who joins us will be well taken care of and well respected.
  • Competitive salary & bonus: $750-850 based on experience and interview
  • Weekly off day (must be willing to alternate between Sunday and another day of their choice)
  • Public holidays as discussed and mutually agreed
  • Occasional opportunity to travel overseas with the family
  • No dietary / cooking restrictions, we will pay for your groceries and food. You can eat anything you like - what is cooked for the family or any food of your choice.
  • It's most important for us that you eat well and rest well.

My husband and I are in very hectic jobs with a lot of travel coming up. Our kids are very young (2.5 years old and 6.5 months old) with a small age gap so both need attention. So we are hoping to have 2 helpers to balance the workload and ensure proper rest for both. We had 1 helper join us when our first baby was born (~2.5 years ago) and are looking for another wonderful helper to join our family now that our second baby is 6 months old and I’m returning to work this week. It can get a lot for one person to manage 2 very small kids with different schedules/play dates/activities, cooking, housekeeping, laundry, etc so we think 2 helpers together can manage better so that both can be comfortable and share the workload. 

Our current helper is a lovely Filipino lady. She is no-drama and wants a healthy working relationship and a positive partnership without any conflict. It will be our top priority to ensure that both helpers feel equally comfortable and at home with our family. 

In terms of duties & expectations, we’d like one helper to take care of one child’s schedule each and divide the rest of the chores/housekeeping/cooking based on their strengths and interests. We will clearly define their roles at the outset based on the interview.
