POEA warns Filipino nurses applying for job in Germany against illegal recruiters

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration warns Filipino nurses seeking jobs in Germany under the Triple Win Project of online illegal recruitment activities.

Reports regarding a website run by alleged illegal recruiters who promise nursing jobs in the said country have reached POEA.

POEA Administrator Bernard P. Olalia discourages jobseekers from submitting their application, as well as personal information via online and instead personally submit their documents at the Manpower Registry Division of POEA.

“The Triple Win Project is a joint initiative between the Philippines and Germany to help bring qualified nurses in the country to work in Germany. The whole recruitment and deployment process here in the Philippines is being handled only by POEA and no other outside agencies have been authorized to work on our behalf,” Administrator Olalia said.

The POEA enjoins all applicants to be vigilant against illegal recruiters and to report any suspected illegal recruitment activities to the POEA Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch at 722-11-92 or at POEA Hotline numbers 722-11-44 or 722-11-55.

It can be recalled that the POEA earlier released a news advisory to announce that they are still accepting applications to fill up 400 vacancies for Filipino nurses in Germany.
