White Glove – maid agency in Singapore with a difference
Looking for a live-in helper in Singapore? Get the help of White Glove, a maid agency with a difference. Founded by American attorney Jennifer Yarbrough, the company offers arrangements that benefit both the employer and helpers in Singapore. Unlike agencies that charge large amounts that employers are required to pay upfront and helpers have to deduct from their salary to pay off, White Glove doesn’t charge its helpers. This saves you money, and it reduces the financial burden on your helper.
The company also only represents helpers who have transferred from other homes in Singapore – this means that the helpers are experienced and knowledgeable about living here. All of the helpers who are represented by the agency undergo a stringent pre-screening process, which includes getting records from MOM, references from former employers and the checking of social media accounts. Only suitable helpers in Singapore are recommended to potential employers.
The company will guide you through the entire process, too, from selecting helpers to interviewing and making an offer, and arranging them to start working for you. The agency will also suggest the best questions to ask during the interviews to find out if the helper is suitable for your family. Best of all, everything including applications and contracts can be conveniently completed online.

More home services companies: Hear from our reader about IT help!
Bianca and Mark Amin, British
I first visited the Tekkie Help booth when they were exhibiting at a Christmas fair back in 2014. I was desperate to find a proficient IT service company who could troubleshoot the plethora of problems I was having with my laptop and phone at that time.
Since 2015, I’ve engaged Tekkie Help to assist us with a number of IT issues. They have set up and configured various Apple devices, ensuring that all data is safely backed up, transferred photos and further assisted in photo library consolidation and file organisation, installed several IP cameras to monitor activity in our home from my mobile phone, and optimised our Wi-Fi network to ensure coverage in all areas of our home. Most importantly, I was concerned about the level of radiation in our home. The company was able to set up the network in such a way that we could still enjoy optimal coverage, with the ability to turn Wi-Fi on and off in certain areas of our home and still connect important devices via cable.
Aside from their unparalleled ability to assist me with all my technical needs, they are to be commended for their flexibility and understanding. Many times, they’ve helped me off-site at coffee shops and in hospitals. Over the past five years, my various technical requirements have been attended to by almost all the Tekkie Help team; each member has exuded warmth and an upbeat “can do” attitude.
