According to the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA), the Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health and Hospital Operations Program (MOH-HOP) through the Saudi Recruitment Office in Makati City has reiterated its recruitment order for female nurses, including other skills for hospital operations in the Kingdom. The Saudi MOH is the oldest government employer of POEA that has deployed 86,000 Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) for the past 30 years.
A total of 500O female nurses is urgently needed and the government agencies of POEA and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will conduct a nationwide registration to recruit qualified applicants. Applicants from far-flung provinces can register through the regional offices of POEA and DOLE.
The POEA informed that recruitment of applicants in Mindanao for this month is not so successful that a new batch of applicants will be interviewed in August. The Health Ministry of Saudi is in need of 300 to 500 Muslims to be deployed in the hospitals at the holy cities of Makkah and Medina. “They may qualify even without passing the nursing licensure examination. However, only those aged at least 21 years old may apply," POEA said.
For nurses without the required years of experience in hospitals may qualify for the entry-level employment offer and on-the-job training of the MOH. Meanwhile, those who had passed the nursing licensure exam are encouraged to send application to POEA for the no-placement fee hiring for MOH.
