More Jobs for OFWs in Italy in 2009

Contrary to the global financial slowdown, Italy will need more overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in 2009 according to the Italian Honorary Consul of the Philippine Consulate in Florence.

Dr. Fabio Fanfani said that there is a big demand for jobs not only on domestic work but also in the medical sector like caregivers, chefs, auto mechanics, IT programmers, bank and hotel workers.

“In our country, we pay in Euro and its better for Filipino people because the dollar is down,” Fanfani said.

Divinia Capalad, councilor representative for migrant workers in Florence, led the enactment of law that recognizes Filipino professional workers in Italy.

Pinasa ko na din ang proposal na iyan na kilalanin iyong higher educational level natin. Iyong mga nakapag-trabaho ng may pantay na karapatan bilang doon sa propesyon natin,” Capalad said.

Filipino workers who were already in Italy will be given priority in hiring with the job opportunities next year.

hello there!

itatanong ko lang po sana kung saan ako pwedeng makahanap ng legitimate Italian employer? Nabalitaan ko kasi sa local TV dito sa Pinas na pwede na ang direct hiring for Italy. Interesado po akong magtrabaho sa Italy, pero hindi ko po alam kung saan maghanap ng employer o ng job postings para sa mga Filipino workers. Any help is highly appreciated po. Thank you so much!

Hello, I am already in Italy in just a month, am holding a student visa.I am studying a languages for tourism in a University. Do you know an employer whom I can work for a part-time? Caregiver and hotel workers are fine for me. I have a rich experience teaching English in both Philippines and China so I can teach English privately at the same time. Thank you so much! I HOPE I will be given chance then. Have a nice day!
