Why Maid For You?
Our mission is to match the right helper with the right family and to provide employers and helpers with a long and prosperous relationship. All of our staff are committed to this philosophy and thoroughly believe in improving working conditions for the foreign domestic worker.
My name is Tamara. I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and came to Hong Kong in 2002 on a soul-searching adventure. I married my British, Hong Kong-born husband in 2013 and became a mom at 41 years old to a beautiful daughter in 2015.
My professional background includes management roles in the hospitality and customer service industry, as well as counselling and crisis management. I also have extensive experience in project management, designing and facilitating creative events, and professional consulting and coaching. Through my diverse roles in life and work, I have developed very strong intuitive and empathetic qualities, which help me to build meaningful connections and a deep understanding of each and every individual I work with. This, along with my connection to Hong Kong and its great diversity, is a definite asset when working to make meaningful matches between families and domestic workers with Maid For You.
I was born in Spain and studied in Madrid, where I graduated with a masters degree in Spanish, English, French translation and interpreting.
My passion for languages and different cultures has taken me to many corners of the world, allowing me to develop many interests and skills along the way.
Over the years, I have worked in corporate management and recruitment roles in Oxford, London, the Caribbean and Hong Kong for companies such as Nielsen Online, TripAdvisor and Biorna Quantics.Maid For You is the channel to bring these skills together and help create make the ideal match between domestic helpers and employers.
I was born and raised in Germany, graduated as Diplom-Kauffrau in Business Administration with majors in Human Resources and Psychology and worked in international consultancies in various HR roles. Facilitating great matches between employers and employees has been a large part of my career and I always found it fulfilling when those matches worked out well. In 2003 my husband and I embarked on our Asia journey, leading us to Singapore, Shanghai and finally Hong Kong, which has been our home for over 12 years, together with our now teenage son. My connection with the local community and the desire to work in a meaningful environment was deepened through my work with a local charity where I provide horse assisted therapy and riding lessons to children with special needs. At Maid For You I am looking forward to bring my skills and passion together in order to support families and domestic workers to find the right matches.
I am extremely familiar with Hong Kong, having written a 400-page expat guide explaining how things work in terms of all aspects of life and cultural differences. I have also written another guide dedicated to families to inspire and encourage parents to discover all there is to do with children in Hong Kong. As a licensed tour guide in Hong Kong, I love sharing my passion for and knowledge of Hong Kong. I am passionate about travelling, languages, nature, cooking and different cultures.
My former experience in HR and as a journalist, as well as my knowledge of Hong Kong, has helped her to develop an understanding of what people who are looking for a domestic worker need. I am able to ask the right questions to find a domestic worker that perfectly matches your needs.
Born in Paris, I was raised throughout Africa and lived in France as a teenager. London was my home before I moved to Hong Kong four years ago. I am used to navigating through different cultures and backgrounds. After years of experience as an account manager in the fashion industry, I am now using my skills and expertise with Maid For You to help employers and foreign domestic helpers. I understand my client’s needs and I am dedicated to finding the best match for you and your family.
I am an English born Australian who came to Hong Kong with my husband, two small children and an open spirit. A diverse background incorporating event management, business analysis and change management, as well as a little sales and hospitality, has provided me with a heightened level of empathy which helps me to understand the individual requirements of each client and to build mutually beneficial partnerships. After working with the team for some time, I was really excited to take up the reigns of Maid For You and Fairmaid and am delighted to be effecting positive change for foreign domestic helpers and employers in Hong Kong.
