Extra Hand ManPower Agency when it comes to sourcing for quality Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW) in Asia. We work closely with our affiliates in the region to put every FDW through a stringent selection process before shortlisting them.
All Singapore citizens, Permanent Residents and expatriates who hold a valid employment or work pass may hire an FDW. You are required to have a valid reason to employ an FDW to work at your own residence. Employers who are expatriates also need to declare that their family members are living with them at the point of application. All applications are subject to the approval of the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
Employers are required to pay a monthly levy of S$265 (normal) or S$120 (concessionary). Levy charges begin on the second day after the FDW arrives in Singapore, inclusive of the day of arrival. Levy payments can only be made via GIRO and the FDW’s Work Permit (WP) will be cancelled if the levy is not duly paid. You can view your levy bills online using the Internet Foreign Worker Levy Billing System with your SingPass.
An employer is eligible for a levy concession for each FDW – of up to two FDWs per household – if he or she fulfills the conditions stipulated by MOM. In general, a household that has a child who is a Singaporean Citizen below 12 years of age or an elderly individual (employer/spouse/parent/parent-in-law/grandparent/gandparent-in-law) who is a Singaporean Citizen aged 65 years and above would qualify for the concession. An employer who has a person with disability in the household would also qualify. Please contact us for further details.
For Filipino FDWs:
- Their command of English are generally good.
- Most of them are Catholics or Christians.
- Generally they require at least a day off per month, although some may work without off days if compensated by a higher salary.
For Indonesian FDWs, their monthly salaries range from S$450 to S$600 depending on their working experiences and capabilities. For Filipino FDWs, their monthly salaries range from S$500 to $600 depending on their working experiences and capabilities.
Our FDWs are personally interviewed by our staff and put through a stringent screening process before they are selected for employment in Singapore. The FDWs are first recruited by our provincial recruiters, then transported to our Training Centres. There, only applicants who are considered suitable by the standards set by the Ministry of Manpower in Singapore (MOM) will be shortlisted and interviewed. Applicants must further meet the preliminary physical, mental and attitude requirements set by our agents before they can proceed for the second round selection.
Selected FDWs will then go through the training programmes in the designated training centres for approximately 1 month. Those with undesirable work attitudes and poor learning capabilities will then be disqualified. Essentially, only good candidates are finally offered a job in Singapore.
We will do our best to provide a smooth and convenient “1-in-1-out” service to employers as we understand the need for immediate replacements after their existing FDW is transferred. We will do our utmost to match the timing whilst at the same time abide by MOM’s regulations and formalities.
