EU wants welders, engineers in the fast lane

Does EU Want You?

If you’re welders, Germany desperately needs your skills. If you’re an engineer, Porsche wants you in the fast lane to start their engines. Knowing what skills and occupations are in demand in Germany and Europe is easy.

Getting there to work is the hard part.

You must have an employer willing and able to pay for your recruitment and placement costs through licensed recruitment agencies.  You may also be hired directly, as long as the employer in Germany or Europe complies with the accreditation requirements of the Labor Department through its POLO offices in the country where the business or employer is located.

Name hires or direct hiring. The procedures and requirements are available by clicking this link - http://poea.gov.ph/arta_iso/Namehire.pdf

At time of writing, there are no job orders for welders from POEA licensed recruitment agencies, as of August 11, 2016. (see link) http://www.poea.gov.ph
