Japan will be building an economic zone thus needing housekeepers / domestic helpers to take care of the employer’s household. DH or maid job scope includes gardening, house cleaning, bed fixing, basic house repair, and other household chores. The chosen helpers need not stay at their employer’s house.

Interested applicants should train domestic helper related courses for six months in TESDA and acquire a National Certificate (NC II). They should also learn Japanese language (Nihongo) to have an edge during the application. Of course, experienced Filipino domestic helpers have higher chance of getting employed.

Japan is currently employing Filipinos as factory workers, hotel and restaurant staff, medical (nurses), and health care related jobs. But after the agreement between the Philippines and Japan is finalized, the latter will be employing Filipino domestic helpers to work on their country.

There is no definite number of domestic helpers needed in Japan, but according to POEA, they will announce it on their website once there is an update regarding this matter.

Update as of April 21,2016. Watch the Video below from TV Patrol:

Based on the news report of TV Patrol on April 21,2016. The guidelines for the “Pilot Testing” are currently being fixed. Initially, there will be 50 to 100 domestic helpers that will be sent to Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan for the said Pilot Testing. According to POEA Administrator Sir Hans Cacdac, he sees this as another opportunity for Filipino workers to wok overseas.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Agency has reminded OFWs to apply only to accredited manpower agencies and verify through the POEA’s official website if the latter has available job orders for their offered job openings.

Domestic helpers especially Filipinos are preferred by employers in countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Malaysia, and those in the middle east like Qatar, Dubai, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. Probably, because aside from know-how in household chores, they are also able to speak English, and show genuine care to their employer’s loved ones.
