United Kingdom Hiring 554 Filipino Nurses
DOLE: The United Kingdom needs 554 Filipino nurses, Apply now on credited nursing Agencies, see the list below.
“There is demand for Filipino nurses in the UK due to its ageing nursing workforce and the shrinking pool of registered nurses. These are based on reports and studies by UK’s Center for Workforce Intelligence and the Royal College of Nursing, which said 24 percent of registered nurses are set to retire in the next five years,” Philippine Labor Attache in the UK Joan Lavilla said in her report to Secretary Baldoz.
The 554 nursing jobs are from the eight job orders from the following placement agencies:
Search Recruitment Limited and Medicare Staffing Limited. They will deploy 180 and 60 nurses, respectively, to Northwest London Hospitals, Gloucestershire Hospitals, and Kingston Hospitals. These hospitals are National Health Service (NHS) Trusts.
Pure Health Staffing Limited, Job Connections UK Limited, Sky Care Health Limited, and More Medical Associates Limited. They will deploy 314 Filipino nurses to UK private care homes Rushcliffe Care Group, Gold Care Homes Limited, Bond Care Limited, and Four Seasons.
Citing the report of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in the UK, Baldoz said that aside from the 554 nurses, Drake International, which submits recruitment requirements directly to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, reported 487 job orders of Filipino nurses for its five clients: Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust; Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust; New Victoria Hospital; BMI Healthcare; and Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Trust.
With this good news, I wish to warn our nurses desiring to work in the UK to follow the legal stream—processes—of overseas employment, through the POEA — to avoid getting conned by illegal recruiters,” POLO-UK Labor Attache Joan Lavilla. said.
