About 400 vacant positions are now available for medical workers in Japan, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) said.
In a job advisory, the POEA said the Japan International Corporation of Welfare Services (JICWELS) is now hiring 75 nurses and 300 careworkers, who will be deployed in Japanese medical facilities.
It said interested nurses, who would like to apply for the job opening should have a degree in nursing, a board license, and has at least three years of hospital work experience.
For careworkers, applicants should be a graduate of a four-year science-related course like nursing and other allied profession, and has the necessary certification from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
Applicants for both positions must also be medically and psychologically fit, and preferably in the 20 to 35 age group.
POEA said they should first register online at www.eregister.poea.gov.ph.
They will then be required to submit the following documents at POEA’s main office in Mandaluyong City: detailed resume with one piece 2×2 recent picture; transcript of Records; Japanese Language Training Certificate, if available; copy of valid passport; valid National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Clearance (for travel abroad).
Nurse applicants will also be required to present their valid Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) ID Card and employment certificates, while careworkers must present their valid TESDA Certificate on Caregiving.
“The deadline of submission is on 10 July 2015,” POEA said.
In a related development, POEA administrator Hans Cacdac reminded recruitment agencies yesterday to comply with government requirements before they apply for license to operate.
He issued the statement yesterday after interviewing the operators of four companies, which he said were unqualified to recruit and deploy overseas Filipino workers (OFW).
Three of the applicants have no prior experience in handling OFWs, while the remaining applicant admitted it did not “declare” its income at the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
