Nurses warned vs online recruiters for Germany

February 13, 2019

THE Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, an attached agency of the Department of Labor and Employment, has warned Filipino nurses seeking jobs in Germany under the Triple Win Project to be vigilant against online illegal recruitment activities.

The POEA issued the warning in the wake of reports regarding a website run by alleged illegal recruiters who promise nursing jobs in Germany.

POEA administrator Bernard 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 the 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,” he said.

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.
