Nadeera Jayasingha

TotalCare Employment Services, a Sri Lankan owned foreign domestic worker employment agency at Selegie Centre in Singapore will host a seminar in Beliatte on March 11, 9 a.m., onwards at Beliatta Mami Hotel.

 Director of TotalCare Services Nadeera Jayasingha said that with the signing of the Sri Lanka-Singapore FTA there was a greater focus to get more manpower from Sri Lanka. "While the demand for house maids, beauticians and other labor intensive employment opportunities is strong, there is also demand for Care Givers as well."

She said the working standards and labor laws in Singapore were of a very high standard and also the income too was very attractive. "This makes Singapore a preferred destination for many Asians when they look at foreign employment".

Unfortunately Sri Lanka is yet to take advantage of this and the FTA is a golden opportunity to harness this talent.

"This is the reason we decided to host a seminar in the South to enlighten the public on both educational and employment opportunities available for them."

She said that their services extended to placement of transfer maids, direct hire and work permit processing, renewal and cancellation of work permit, passport renewal, embassy processing home leave, passport renewal, providing bankers guarantees and insurance and other related services.

She said that one of the biggest advantages they had was their ability to communicate in several languages including Sinhala and also their committed customer care service providing a 24 hour service.

"This enables our employer to contact us and seek our assistance during non-working hours."

Having started their operations in Singapore in 2005, TotalCare Employment Services now has branches in India and Malaysia as well. Last January it also moved in to the Education Segment offering placement for Sri Lankan students in leading Universities in Singapore and other Counties.
