Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz announced in a statement that the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has approved 270 job orders for the three hospitals in the United Kingdom.
Baldoz said the job orders will be handled by Omanfil International Manpower Development Corporation, a Philippine-based international manpower agency.
“Apart from the 220 job orders for nurses we have reported in January this year, this latest overseas employment opportunity augurs well to our globally-competitive health care professionals,” she said in a statement.
The job orders are for Whittington Health NHS Trust, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Omanfil chairman Leonardo de Ocampo, through a letter, informed Baldoz about the 270 job vacancies.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said Omanfil is a recipient of the Presidential Awardee of Excellence, making its job orders exempt from overseas labor office verification and approval.
It said recruitment agencies that received such citation are exempt from evaluation in terms of volume and quality of deployment, technical capabilities, compliance with recruitment rules and regulations, welfare programs and allied services, human resources development plan, industry leadership, marketing capability, social awareness, and proof of responsibility.
