The Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) seeks to hire 100 Filipino caregivers to work in South Korea.

DMW explained on Friday, May 3, that the recruitment stemmed from the caregiver pilot project under the Employment Permit System (EPS) between the Philippines and the Republic of South Korea.

"The project aims to expand bilateral labor ties between the Philippines and Korea and assess the feasibility of a larger caregiver deployment plan between the two countries," DMW said in an advisory.

DMW said that qualified caregivers will assist with childcare, daily tasks like cleaning and laundry, and support for pregnant women.


"It will directly benefit Korean families who need help caring for children, including infants, or who have pregnant women, single parents, or dual-income couples," DMW said.

DMW said that interested applicants must present their Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, or TESDA, NC II Caregiving Certificate, and should age betweem 24 to 38 years old.

The department said that selected applicants will undergo comprehensive medical, psychological, language, and physical tests, as well as pre-departure and post-arrival training sessions.

DMW said that registration will begin on May 9 and end on May 10.
