Hong Kong Orientation February 2011

Dear Diamond Applicants,

 First let me take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year.  We are very excited to embark on a new year full of opportunities and success.

 With all of the changes to the laws governing caregiver recruitment, many nanny agencies have disappeared and others have struggled to keep afloat with diminishing job orders.  Not Diamond!  With over 23 years of amazing service to Canada’s most discerning families, clients continue to use Diamond, the agency that delivers quality nannies parents can trust.  We are so proud to be voted the BEST NANNY AGENCY in Canada.  And we have been placing more nannies from Hong Kong than ever before!

 In full compliance with all laws, Diamond does not charge recruitment or immigration fees to nannies.  Our employers pay all costs associated with the sourcing and hiring of a live in caregiver including the cost of your airfare to Canada.   You will however, be responsible for the cost of your medical, police clearance and Canadian visa.

 If you are interested in applying to work in Canada as a live in caregiver, we invite you to review our list of requirements.  We recommend that you prepare all of the necessary documents ahead of our scheduled visit in February.   In order to be selected as a Diamond caregiver, you must truly be exceptional.  We are looking for professional, mature, trained caregivers with hands on experience.  We require current Canadian caregiver training available in Hong Kong through either the YMCA Hong Kong or the Canadian Caregiver Training Institute or any other program which provides current CPR and First Aid training and Child Safety courses.  Diamond is not affiliated with either of these programs and participation in a training program does not ensure placement through Diamond Personnel.   It is simply one of the requirements that must be met in order for you to be considered by our company as a Diamond quality candidate.

 We will be holding free orientation sessions in Hong Kong on Friday February 4th and Sunday February 5th

 at 9:30 am and 11:30 am sharp

at the Mira Hotel, 118 Nathan Rd. Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. 

 We will be available for individual interviews and assessments from Thursday February 4th through February 7th for those of you who have completed your requirements and have attended an orientation.  Please contact Mary at 416-730-8866 (m.buenviaje@diamondpersonnel.com)  to request an application and schedule your personal interview.

 Thank you for your interest and confidence in Diamond Personnel.  We will do everything in our power to find you the best family in Canada.

 Warm Regards,

 Shauna Guth

Placement Manager
