- Japan offers jobs for repatriated OFWs from Kuwait
- The salary being offered is almost double of what the repatriated OFWs were getting from their employers in Kuwait
- TESDA is urging the repatriated OFWs to undergo training before applying for the jobs in Japan
High-paying job opportunities in Japan await distressed overseas Filipino workers (OFW) who were repatriated from Kuwait.
As per the Business Mirror, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Silvestre Bello III said a group of Japanese businessmen engaged in flight catering business offered to hire at least 1,000 OFWs from Kuwait.
The salary being offered is almost double of what the repatriated OFWs were getting from their employers in Kuwait.
“They are offering a good salary of $800 dollars. That is twice what they receive [in Kuwait],” Secretary Bello told reporters in an interview last week.
Bello expressed confidence that the repatriated OFWs will qualify for the position being offered by Japan once they undergo the necessary trainings.
“Many of them are HSW (household service workers) who do cooking and cleaning, so they will not have hard time adjusting in the catering (business),” the DOLE secretary said.
The repatriated OFWs are being urged by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to apply for the training during its two-day special National Technical and Vocational Education and Training enrolment next month.
The training will be held on April 5 and 6 at TESDA technology institutions nationwide.
