More Filipino nurses will soon have the opportunity of working in Germany with the continued implementation of the Triple Win Project, which projected to hire 1,000 Pinoy nurses for 2020.
Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the Federal Republic of Germany preferred to hire additional Pinoy nurses to address its need for healthcare professionals under the Triple Win Project, a government-to-government hiring program administered by Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
“It has been six years since the Philippines and Germany started cooperation on the placement of our Pinoy nurses. I am confident that for 2020, this partnership under the Triple Win Project will provide improved and streamlined application process, and more importantly, ensured protection to our nurses,” Bello said.
Citing the POEA data, the labor chief also disclosed that from 2013, a total of 903 Pinoy nurses were deployed in Germany and now receiving a starting monthly salary of €2,000 up to € 2,400 after recognition as a qualified nurse.
However, the labor chief clarified that the application period for this year has already ended and the application period and process for next year will be announced soon.
Bello meanwhile said the success of Triple Win Project might open up other job opportunities to the Filipinos as Germany is eyeing to expand the project’s coverage to other sectors to meet their labor demand.
