This is good news for Filipino skilled workers who want to work in the Hotel and Restaurant sector overseas particularly in Israel. Starting November of 2019, Israel will start processing the 1000 available jobs in the hotel and restaurant sector for Filipinos.
This particular job in Israel will have no placement fee since it is POEA that will be in-charge in the hiring process under its government to government hiring program.
The monthly salary of the soon to be hired hotel workers will be around 78,000 pesos or roughly 1495.45 USD. Hotel worker jobs include but not limited to positions such as room boy, laundry, and housekeeping.
Here are the Qualifications for Interested Applicants
- Must be 25 years old and above
- Possesses a TESDA National Certificate (NC2) in the related field (such as housekeeping)
- Should be a Filipino Citizen
- Able to communicate in the English language
- Physically and mentally fit
- Have a valid NBI Clearance
- Hard-working and have good manners
There is NO placement fee plus the employer will be the one to shoulder the airfare cost of the hired applicants.
Unfortunately, those who previously worked in Israel or have relatives working and living in the said country are not qualified for the stated job openings. The reason for this is to prevent incidents such as overstaying of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) after their working visa has expired.
Interested applicants must apply directly to POEA thru the agency’s official website www.poea.gov.ph.
