The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) announced yesterday the names of the 26 licensed recruitment agencies duly authorized to deploy overseas Filipino workers (OFWS) to New Zealand.
In a statement, POEA administrator Hans Cacdac advised potential OFWs, who are interested to work in New Zealand, to apply in authorized agencies to avoid becoming victims of illegal recruitment.
“Recruitment agencies and their respective job orders from New Zealand and other countries can be accessed at http://www.poea.gov.ph/cgibin/JobVacancies/jobsByCty.asp,” Cacdac said.
Among the offered positions are carpenters, painters, plasterers, bricklayers, block layers, masons, electricians, welders, fabricators and plasterers.
He said POEA is not directly engaged in recruiting OFWs bound to New Zealand since it has no government-to-government employment agreement with the former British Colony.
POEA disclosed only the following agencies have existing job placements in New Zealand:
- 21st Century Manpower Resources Inc.
- Adana Manpower Services Corporation
- Bison Management Corporation
- EDI Staffbuilders International Inc.
- Eligardi Enterprises
- FAASI International Corporation

Cacdac reminded the listed agencies not to collect any placement fee from their OFW clients since New Zealand has an existing law against it.
