Thousands of job opportunities in Poland have opened up to Filipinos willing to work in manufacturing, fish and meat processing, information technology, and heavy-duty truck driving.
Many of the jobs do not even require experience, as employers will provide training.
Workers will also get the chance to apply for residency and even bring their families with them after working there for a few years.
Poland and Philippines are both Roman Catholic countries. Hence, they share many cultural values.
Poland is importing laborers as a result of the country’s aging population and the exodus of its workers to more prosperous EU countries.
Nevertheless, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) strongly advised all job-seekers to be wary of bogus recruiters and refer only to official job orders on their website for when planning to work abroad.
