I was referred by a friend to Helper Direct, the day when my helper served me a one-month notice suddenly. In my past experience, it usually takes 2-3 months for the new helpers to be on board. I just cannot afford to take holiday again to take care my daughter. I searched all around for helper agencies, but 99% suggested me to hire from overseas which i still need to wait 2 months at least. When i called Helper Direct, the staff said they can help me to source local finish contract helpers for me, so i just give it a try. I didn't expect that they are managed to find me 3 local finish contract helpers for interview in that weekend. I hired one of them whose finish date is exactly a week before my current helper is going to leave. I am lucky. For urgent cases like me, maybe you can call to see if they can help.
karen forget to say, the staff there are also very friendly. they also suggest me how to handle my current helpers' case and my mother's helper's problem too. I really appreciate for their help indeed.
