Philippine Employment Agencies for Housekeepers, Household Staff, Maids and Drivers

Getting your household in order can be overwhelming especially for expatriate families. In finding a housekeeper it would be a good idea to go hire one via an employment agency or through a trusted referral by a good family friend.

Never hire strangers. People who don't really have any social connection to you, other than that they just walked in right through your door via an ad placed in craigslist or a newspaper. Its important that someone you trust should vouch for their integrity or where they're from. In this case, they call it a referral. 

Manila is relatively safe, but like any other city in the world, it has its share of thugs, thieves and gangs. Syndicates exist and their modus operandi is mainly infiltrating your household through a helper/maid. One may work in the household a few months, prepping the place for an inside job. Sometimes even the most trusted maid can be coerced into a home invasion by being threatened with death by these scheming individuals. But that's another lengthy post. So its better to be vigilant over your family's safety. 

Hiring via an employment agency is your best bet because they can be held accountable for the hired help and the quality of the cleaning services rendered.

Here are two notable manpower agencies for cleaning services and hiring of your household help:

Housekeeping & management for the expat household. They also have workshops and trainings for the house staff according to specific household needs such as Cleaning, Fabric Care & Laundry Duties, Manners & Etiquette, Budgeting & Shopping, Table Setting & Service. They do background checks and work references too.
