Looking for a high paying job in Japan? You’ve come to the right place. Read on and browse from the list of available jobs in Japan for Filipinos from POEA licensed agencies posted this June 2016.
Just a single flight away, four hours in the air, you could be in a job lucrative enough to meet your goals financially, that is, if you could work in Japan as it appears.
While the idea is nothing recent nor new, a staff of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Japan, Jeng dela Cruz, claimed that the “Land of the Rising Sun” is currently seeking employees to fill in on its vacant jobs.
Japan, known to be a developed country and home to the majority who are aging, is said to be lacking the needed manpower it needs in some of its sectors.
Coming from a statement said at an interview with dela Cruz at DZMM, a local radio station in the Philippines, household workers and skilled workers like engineers are currently rampant in Japan which suggests the likely demand for workers on these sectors of the industry. In another statement, it was also mentioned that workers who are skilled enough with their trade can be recruited on one of two means—direct hiring or recruitment via registered agencies, those especially accredited by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
Apart from the mentioned kind of work, Japan appears to be also in demand for drivers and English teachers.
Yet, even Filipinos who are in an altogether trade such as that in the entertainment industry seems to be of demand still:
“There are entertainers coming every month. They concentrate on provinces such as Fukushima, Hiroshima, but in Tokyo there are just three promoters hiring entertainers, band members.”
All About The Money
With drivers and household service workers being the general occupation among Filipinos in the country of Japan, information is strong regarding the potential income to be made if you are in any of these two positions.
According to the data, an average household service provider in Japan can earn as much as ¥120,000 to ¥150,000 or roughly P52,000 to P65,000 when converted to Philippine peso. On the hand, Filipino drivers—who are said to be favored by the Japanese—can earn an average wage of ¥200,000 or P87,000.
With English as the only requirement—not educational attainment—Filipinos who are not college graduates but can drive and speak good English seems to have a bright future in Japan. This is even highlighted by the fact that most Filipinos who are hired as drivers in Japan are under commonly the employment of ambassadors and diplomats in that country.
Interested Filipino workers, however, are being cautioned of illegal recruiters but are instead suggested to go through legit POEA-accredited agencies to be prevent them from getting scammed.
VISA Still Required
The years 2014 and 2015 showed an exciting news regarding Japan’s lifting off of its VISA requirements for the people of Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam. However, the Japanese embassy claimed this to be just a hoax and is thus not real. Despite the rather disappointing reality of this hoax, the Japanese embassy, however, is offering multiple-entry VISAs for Filipinos who intend to work over time in Japan.
