The demand for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) grew by 21 percent in 2018, a jobs board company revealed on Tuesday, January 19.

In a press conference, Workabroad Marketing Lead Paola Savillo said that there was a noticeable increase in the number of employers’ job postings seeking to hire OFWs in 2018 compared to numbers recorded in 2017.

“Overseas hirers posted a total of 137,243 job listings from January to October 2018. This is up to 21 percent compared to 2017, which had 113,545,” said Savillo.

Savillo added that Middle East remains to be the top recruiter of OFWs with at least 76 percent of the job postings coming from the Gulf region.

In the Gulf region, the most in demand fields are healthcare, general workers, and engineers.

“For skilled workers, having skills-based courses from tech-voc institutions are also highly recommended,” Savillo added.

Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Marketing Director Levinson Alcantara, meanwhile, said that Middle East countries usually prefer to hire Filipinos.

“All Middle Eastern countries have nationalization. In some degree we can still access jobs in some companies. Despite this, most Filipino workers are still able to get jobs. They’re still preferred workers,” said Alcantara.
