1,000 jobs in Czech Republic to open for Filipino workers

The Czech government announced that 1,000 jobs will be offered to qualified Filipino workers as part of Czech Republic’s three-country expansion for foreign workers.

Philippine Embassy Charge d’affaires Jed Dayang said Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš personally relayed the announcement to him during a diplomatic event in Prague, reported Manila Bulletin.

In February, Czech government agreed to double its quota for fast-track migrant workers from Ukraine, Mongolia, and the Philippines.

They increased the number to 19,600 this year against 9,600 in 2017, aiming to help firms struggling to find workers and facing pressure from the workforce for wage hikes.

Dayang said that overseas Filipino workers in Czech Republic are “highly valued for their good work, good character, and for integrating well in Czech society.”

“Those are (the) good reasons why the Czech Government has decided to make it easy for more Filipinos to work in the Czech Republic. Credit goes to the Filipino community in the Czech Republic,” Dayang said in a message posted on his social media account.

The Filipino community in Czech Republic is growing. Five years ago, there were only 350 OFWs in the country, now there are 1,005, and 1,000 more work visas will be granted to those who will get hired because of this labor expansion.

With job opportunities as great as this, Dayang also reminded the public to be aware of illegal recruiters.

“Isa po ito sa misyon ng ating gobyerno na isulong ang ligtas, maayos, at legal na migrasyon para sa mangagawang Pilipino sa Cheka. Babala po na mag- ingat sa illegal recruiters na di dadaan sa POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration),” he said.
