Mr. Emmanuel Geslani, recruitment consultant of several Manila-based agencies, shared in his interview with GMA News and that Republic of Madagascar has opened its doors in recruiting OFW to work as electrical and instrumentation foremen, database administrators, control room specialists, lead hands, maintenance engineers, metallurgical supervisors, and ore preparation foremen and operators.

Mr. Geslani adds that the job offers from Madagascar were due to the marketing missions of several overseas recruitment agencies. One of the local recruitment agencies, Jerphi Overseas Placement and Trading Corporation, managed to meet with international mining companies and successfully convinced these companies to hire Filipino workers.

According to Mr. Geslani, compensation for the above-mentioned positions will be competitive and those with experience and complete documents can be assured of deployment within six weeks. The contract duration may last up to three years. Free food and accommodation, plus medical benefits, will be included in the compensation package. thanks its following sources:
