Recruitment firms not allowed to deploy Pinoy health workers to Japan –POEA

via gmanetwork.com – Filipinos who are looking for work abroad as nurses and caregivers have been warned against dealing with private recruitment agencies offering them job opportunities in Japan.

In a statement Friday, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said private recruitment agencies are not allowed to deploy such workers to Japan.

“Recruitment of nurses or caregivers for Japan can only be done through government to government hiring through the POEA and Japan International Corporation of Welfare Services,” he said in a statement.

Interested applicants are encouraged to submit application forms with the POEA.

Cacdac said that if the applicant was chosen, he or she will be offered for Japanese language training for free.

The statement was issued since there are still online job offers from unscrupulous recruiters regarding nursing and caregiving jobs in Japan.

In the online job offers, applicants are asked to pay P36,500 to P64,500 for their Japanese language training, which is a requirement in getting jobs in Japan.
