Transfer maids are domestic helpers who are already employed in Singapore and are looking for another employer to transfer over to for one reason or another. The reasons could range from their employers relocating and not requiring their services anymore to the designated families not being the perfect fit for the helper. These transfer maids can then be transferred to work for a new employer with written consent from their former employer.
