Hiring of Healthcare Workers in Guam Starts in 2012
Jul 13, 2009

Filipino nurses and other healthcare professionals who want to work overseas can now addGuam as one of their possible country of destinations. Emmanuel Geslani, a recruitment consultant said that aside from workers in the construction sector, Guam also needs to hire health workers. The transfer of a military base from Okinawa Japan to Guam makes the massive recruitment of foreign workers to Guam necessary.

In a statement, Geslani said, ďAside from construction workers, Guam will also be hiring nurses and other health care workers with the impending relocation of US Marines and dependents from Okinawa."


While the recruitment for Filipino construction workers to Guamwill start next year, the hiring for healthcare workers is set to start three years from now. That would be in 2012 when the military base relocation is already completed. Healthcare workers have plenty of time to be ready and qualified for the job opportunities in Guam.


Geslani said ďAspiring Filipino nurses and doctors can now prepare by taking the necessary licensure examinations."


Guam will need the services of the following health care professionals: medical technicians in radiology, cardio labs, CT-Scan, occupational and physical therapists, medical transcriptionists and medical administrative personnel.

Officials from Guam recently visited Manilato discuss the job opportunities for OFWs with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), Philippine Chamber of Commerce, Philippine Association of Service Exporters, Inc. (PASEI), Philippine Construction Association on the hiring of Filipino construction workers.

Amidst the news of job vacancies in Guam, the POEA and other officials from the recruitment industry reminds all jobseekers that the hiring has not yet started.


Jennifer Manalili, POEA Chief said that they are still drafting an employment contract that would be acceptable to both parties.
