MANILA, (PIA) -- The German Government will be hiring 600 nurses from the Philippines for its partner hospitals and elderly care centers, according to the German Embassy on Monday.
The program is part of the Triple Win Project (TWP) of Germany and the Philippine Government, where the Department of Migrant Workers is tasked with leading the recruitment of registered Filipino nurses with at least one year of experience in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and care institutions or private duty nurses.
"Filipino nurses employed in Germany benefit from the high standards of German labor laws and ample social security system regulations, including health insurance, pension insurance scheme, and unemployment insurance," according to the German Embassy.
For interested applicants, these are the requirements for the said job:
Have German language skills of B1 or B2 Level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (certificate must be within 1 year from the date of issue)
or undergo German language training in the Philippines to achieve Level B1 (to be paid for and arranged by Triple Win); and
Attend a language class that can start anytime from November 2022 to January 2023.
Applicants who already have B1 and/or B2 certificates and have been granted more than one year must take the free refresher course offered by TWP.
Applicants must also submit the following:
Cover letter and curriculum vitae
Colored passport-size photo
Copy of valid passport
Notarized nursing diploma upon acceptance into the program; and board certificate and copy of license from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
Since the TWP is government to government, Germany will be providing:
Free German Language training (A1-B1 level)
Bonus payment for passing A2 and B1 on the first take (250 Euro)
Free translation of recognition documents and certification
Travel expenses (visa and airfare)
Assistance in finding accommodation once in Germany
In 2013, Germany joined the TWP where previously acquired Filipino nurses were already promoted in their jobs. (PIA-NCR)
