High Paying Hospital in Abu Dhabi Slates June Visit

One of the highest-paying hospitals in the Middle East has scheduled a recruitment trip to the Abba office this coming June. The big government hospital, a 365-bed facility managed by Global Medical Solutions in Abu Dhabi, will interview nurse-applicants for their nearly 200 vacancies.

The recruitment team, composed of about 8 people, will interview applicants for the following departments: Intensive Care Unit, Recovery Room, Emergency Room, Female and Male Medical Ward, Male Ortho Ward, Out Patient Department, Cardiology, Oncology, Endoscopy, Long Term, Stepdown, Hemodialysis, Pediatric, Anesthesia and VIP.

GMS's last visit to Manila was in December 2007, when they selected 178 Filipino nurses. Most of the nurses were deployed within 2 months after their selection. The compensation package of this government facility is one of the best in the region. The monthly salary starts approximately USD 1300 a month, for those with 3 years work experience, and goes higher for every year in excess of 3 years work. Highly experienced nurses in specialty areas sometimes earn $2476 and that's without OT work yet. In addition, GMS also provides free airfare, yearly housing allowance equivalent to 3 months salary, free education up to 3 children, and a family visa. That means that a nurse can bring in her entire family in the UAE.

Approved applicants are expected to be processed swiflty. The medical exams, which will be free of charge, will be undertaken immediately after the selection of the nurses. Abba is the only accredited agency of GMS in the country. No placement fees will be asked from the approved candidates.

Filipino Railway Workers Needed in Romania

Filipino workers are needed to work in the fourth largest railway system in Europe. The Romanian government prefers Filipino worker in maintaining their railway network.

“Despite the gloomy forecast of a world recession which has affected thousands of OFWs in Taiwan, Korea, Dubai and other countries in various parts of the world, Romania is placing a job order for Filipino railway workers that will upgrade the existing railway network in that country,” said Emmanuel Geslani, a recruitment consultant of an organization of recruitment agencies.

According to Geslani, Romania’s railway has 22,300 kilometers of railroad tracks and it carried 45 percent of all passenger and freight traffic in 2007, therefore more railway workers are needed.

Romania’s railways industry particularly needs railway construction foremen, railway constructors, road engineers, asphalting foremen, steel benders, train engine operators, machine-cutters and welders.

Geslani said that aside from Romania, there are still countries opening their doors to foreign workers despite the labor slowdown.

Filipino workers are still the most wanted foreign workers in Bahrain. According to Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa Salman Al Khalifa, they want more “hardworking” Filipino workers, particularly salesladies for the Middle East state’s shopping malls.

“We really want more Filipinos because they are all hardworking,” the Prime Minister said.

“We have no problem with Filipinos. We should have more of them,” he added.

Meanwhile, Saudi King Abdullah will send a “high level” business mission to the Philippines to look at possible agriculture investments, a separate Palace statement said, quoting Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap.

The business mission will include representatives from the Saudi ministries of agriculture, commerce, and foreign affairs, Yap said, adding Saudi leaders noted Arroyo’s “high level of credibility and rapport” with them.
