Jobs for Filipino Nurses and Engineers in NZ and Australia
CEBU, Philippines – Diplomatic officials from Australia and New Zealand recently announced the increasing demand for Filipino nurses and engineers in their respective countries, which opens up more opportunities for Filipinos to work abroad.
Following the implementation of the ASEAN-Australia-New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA) in January of this year, these two countries vowed to increase the demand for healthcare and skilled workers in their nations.
According to the FTA, New Zealand will allow up to 100 Philippine nurses to work there as registered nurses at any one time for a period of three years. Nurses will be given working visas even while they are undergoing the required bridging courses and exam.
