POEA Licensed Recruitment Agencies List for 2016

Here are ways to verify if a so called POEA accredited Agencies are legit or not? As far as I know there are three (3) possible ways on how you can verify if a certain poea employment agency has a license or not.

If you are currently looking for jobs abroad (like in Canada, New Zealand, Singapore ) offered by certain POEA agency, it would be safer to verify first if the agency is legal. Legal in a way that it has proper documentation and complies with the rules and regulations imposed by POEA.

The verification process is very easy. It will only consume small amount of time and will help save you from illegal ones or the so called fly-by-night recruiters that will just take your hard-earned / loaned money and run away.

POEA Accredited Agency Verification Process

Verify by Status of Recruitment Agency

What you need to do is go the the POEA website. On the upper right side of the page there is search box type in the names of the agencies that you want to verify. The result will be opened in a new window from there you can determine if that specific manpower agency is legitimate.

poea licensed agencies The new window will show details of the agency in this format:

– Full name of the agency
– Full address of the agency
– Telephone numbers / contact details
– Email address
– Website address (if there is any)
– Name of the official representative
– Status of license (Valid or expired license)
– License validity

Verify by Approved and Available Job Orders

The second alternative of checking the legitimacy of a poea agency is to go again on the search box you can see a link regarding “approved job orders” check the link. It will point you to a new window where you will have three choices.

poea accredited agency by job ordersChoose the third one “Search Approved Job Orders by Agency.” Again it will be opened in a new window.

Checking of Agency Step 3You can point your cursor on the drop-down menu or you may type in the first letter of the agency name. If the name of the agency appeared then there is a big chance that it is a licensed poea agency. After that you choose submit.

Checking of Agency Step 4The new window will reflect the list of job orders by the agency in this format:

– Approved Job Orders by Agency as of (current date and time)
– Full name of the agency
– Country / Position / Date Approved / JO (job order) Balance

Note: POEA advised the aspiring applicants to verify if the list of job orders are still active or not. Because they cannot guarantee if the job orders are still active as the agency might have filled the position.

Manual Verification

This can be done in case you don’t have available personal computer connected to the internet at home or also do not know how to use such devices.

You can do this by calling poea the contact numbers are 722.11.44 / 722.11.55 or send email to info(at)poea.gov.ph to verify the names of the agencies.

Just follow any of the given instruction to determine whether the agency that you are applying in has licensed from POEA.

*I got the idea while browsing the poea website. If you don’t know how the three verification process works, it would still be best if you call their hotline and verify the name of agency by yourself.
