UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia plan to hire more Filipinos: DMW

The UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman and three other countries are interested in hiring more Filipinos in healthcare and skilled jobs, according to the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW).

The DMW announced that it is in the process of signing a memorandum of cooperation with the four GCC countries as well as Hungary, Austria and Portugal.

DMW Undersecretary for Policy and International Cooperation PY Caunan said that the department will announce these job openings as part of the special hiring program that it will launch soon.

Caunan said the DMW has scheduled a joint committee meeting with its counterpart in the UAE, adding that UAE authorities already said they are looking for more skilled workers.

“Expect in the coming weeks that we will be calling a series of meetings and dialogues with different stakeholders including our OFWs to get all the concerns, from the private recruitment agencies, and from our OFWs with regards to our deployment in the UAE,” she said.

Caunan said the DMW is looking forward to having a stronger alliance and cooperation with the UAE, especially in the country’s fight against human trafficking, illegal recruitment and third-country recruitment.

A joint committee meeting between the Philippines and Qatar is also expected to happen in September, while they are also looking forward to having stronger ties with Oman which has also communicated that they are in demand for workers. ICA/Expat Media
