The Philippines is a cradle of diversified careers. In fact, a lot of people who work out of the country mostly comes from the Philippines. It’s good to think that this is the case because other countries think of Filipino workers as workers with good ethics. Which is why Germany is looking for at least 350 Pinoy Nurses to be in employment said by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Under the Triple Win Project, a bilateral agreement between the POEA and the German Federal Employment Agency (BA), Germany is looking for Philippine nurses to be under their employment. In a statement by the Administration, they made a report that the International Placement Service (IPS) of the German Federal Employment Agency (ZAV/BA) is looking for a total of 350 applicants for nursing positions.
These nurses, should they be accepted, will be working under different healthcare facilities in Germany under any setting that requires the attendance of a professional nurse.
How much would the salary be? What other benefits does this post entail?
According to the POEA, candidates who would get through the application would receive a gross monthly salary credit starting at €2,000. In Philippine Peso (PhP), it’s over P116,000.00. This salary would see an increase to €2,4000 after being recognized as a qualified nurse in an institution.
In addition to that, the POEA made a note that the employer of the said candidates would shoulder and take care of the expenses for both the airfare and the visa from Philippines to Germany. The employer will also assist the employee in looking for suitable and appropriate accommodation.
POEA would just like to emphasize that although the employer would be handling the airfare and visa costs, the selected nurse would be spending either in full or partial of board and lodging.
