Czech firm has jobs for Filipinos affected by typhoon Yolanda
Czech-based electronics company Teleplan announced it has 55 job openings ready to be filled in May by Filipinos who have survived typhoon Yolanda.
Teleplan reserved half of its 110 new jobs for OFWs who have been affected by last year’s disaster. Teleplan-Prague Human Resources Manager Petr Pesek said ‘By providing them with employment, we want to give them the opportunity to get back on their feet and improve their living conditions.’
The manager added that those who are interested to apply can look forward to benefits like ‘free accommodation, transportation to the place of work, contribution to the Prague public transport, return ticket to the Philippines every 18-months and full support in dealing with work permits and residence permits.’
Teleplan currently employs the largest number of Filipinos in the Czech Republic. Ten percent of the company’s workforce is filled by Filipinos. Philippine Embassy in Charge d’Affaires ad interim Consul Juan Dayang Junior said Teleplan has been a good employer to Filipinos in the Czech Republic. The company had made a donation to its employees who were affected by the typhoon last year.
Teleplan officials are currently working with the Czech Republic Labour Office, Philippine Embassy officials and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) as they finalise plans for the recruitment.
