POEA-Licensed Agencies for Japan With New Job Orders (Updated Weekly)

Japan-Jobs-featured-image

Getting a new job in another country where Filipino or English are hardly spoken by the locals can be very daunting. If you want to simplify your job hunting, finding opportunities through POEA-accredited agencies is one of the best options you have.

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration, or POEA, is an attached agency of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). The POEA is in charge of inspecting and approving agencies in order to protect Filipinos against scams. They maintain and update an internet database where you can search for legitimate agencies with job openings in Japan and other countries. 

This page shows the latest job orders from POEA-accredited agencies.

Why You Should Apply for Jobs in Japan Through POEA Agencies

Benefits of Applying Through POEA-Accredited Agencies

An accreditation from the POEA allows a foreign business to recruit Filipino workers through licensed recruitment agencies. It is through this that the POEA can protect OFWs from substandard labor practices and scams such as identity theft and illegal recruitment1.  

The licenses issued are only valid for four years and can be revoked by POEA before the expiration date. Check the POEA’s agency database to see if the agency still has a valid license. 

There are a number of benefits of going through a POEA accredited recruitment agency when applying for a job in Japan, such as the following: 

  • It is much less likely to be scammed or hired by an abusive employer 
  • A number of these recruitment agencies have built a rapport with many of the foreign employers which can help improve your chances of getting the job 
  • They can easily guide you through the whole process so you don’t miss out on important details 
  • In the event of a dispute2, the POEA has the authority to require the recruitment agency to refund a portion of your money as well as to return your papers. 
  • You can contact the POEA if you are approached by an agency that asks you to engage in illegal or suspicious activity. 

How POEA Validates Job Orders

When a foreign company seeks Filipino employees, they go through accredited recruitment agencies, who then send it to the POEA for assessment and approval. The POEA screens these job postings and issues a job order once it has been verified to be a legitimate job opening void of suspicion. As a job applicant, you can now apply for the job opening with the approved job order.  

But be careful. It’s possible that jobs from previous work orders are no longer available. Use the POEA website to look for jobs from the latest job order. Job order details include the date of submission, the names of each position, and the number of positions available.

 

How To Apply for Jobs in Japan Through POEA-Accredited Agencies: 8 Steps

Now that you’re aware of the advantages of going through an accredited agency, here’s a step-by-step guide on what you need to do so that you can chase after your dream job in Japan.

1. Search for a job position in the POEA database

You can use the list above or the POEA database to do a more in-depth search. Simply choose Japan from the list of countries in the drop-down menu.

You can sort the order of information on the database for ease of finding your ideal job. Select any of the three available options on their database: 

  • Sort by Date JO was Approved, or the default filter order. It is useful to look at the newest job orders that have been approved by the POEA. 
  • Sort by Agency. This option presents to you the list of approved job orders sorted by the agency name, arranged in alphabetical order. This filter is useful if you’re looking for a job order under a specific recruitment agency 
  • Sort by Position. This arranges the list alphabetically based on the name of the position. This is an excellent option if you’re looking to apply for a specific job position. 

In case you don’t find a job that you are looking for, you can check back again some other day. The database is regularly updated and maintained by the POEA. 

2. Make a list of the job orders

Once you’ve figured out how to use the POEA database, it’s now a good time to create a shortlist of all of the ideal job positions that you want to apply for. You can use the Sort by Position function on the POEA database for an easier time of filtering. After using the filter, you should then: 

  • Check the job order posting date. The newest approved job orders are the most likely to have positions available. 
  • Check the number of open positions available in the job order. The higher the number of open positions, the higher chance for you to be accommodated by the employer and get hired. 

As an example, if you want to apply for a position as an English teacher, make a shortlist of all the job orders based on the date and number of vacancies available using the Sort by Position function. This will help you narrow down your search for viable opportunities that can lead to a job that you want.

3. Do research on the jobs that you want to apply for

To give you a better idea if you’re qualified for a specific job, you can check out a few online job boards including jobsinjapan.com, gaijinpot.com, careercross.com, and daijob.com. Most of these websites will provide you with a number of job postings containing important information about the job you’re aiming for like job description, expected salary, job requirements, location, and other pertinent details.

4. Check if the POEA-accredited agency has a valid license

You can verify this by searching for the agency’s name in the POEA’s agency database and checking the status and license validity dates.

5. Do research on the agency

There are currently more than 150 recruitment agencies that have job orders for job postings in Japan. Similar to job hunting, looking for an agency that can address your needs can go a long way in helping you land the job that you want.

It is recommended that you visit the agencies’ official websites and social media accounts for more information on them such as: 

  • Contact details and location 
  • Application and recruitment process 
  • Fees (if any) 
  • Support services they provide to OFWs 
  • Reviews from other people who have experience working with the agency 

6. Contact the POEA-Accredited Agency

Get in touch with your chosen accredited agency and get all the relevant information, requirements, and documents that you need before you visit their office. 

7. Update your resume and portfolio

This is your time to put for best foot forward and showcase how your talents and expertise meet the requirements of the job. To have a better chance of getting hired you can do the following: 

  • Learn more about the potential employer, their values, and the specific requirements of the job. You can do this by visiting their official website and social media accounts. 
  • Create a customized cover letter and resume. When you personalize your cover letter, it will let the agency know that you’ve properly prepared for getting the job. Be sure to highlight your greatest achievements and strengths to leave a good first impression and stand out from the competition.
  • Prepare for your interview. You can do this by listing down relevant topics and questions that the interviewer might bring up so that you’re prepared to answer them. You should also consider listing down your own questions for the employer. This shows them your enthusiasm and that you have a genuine interest in performing well at the job.  
  • Start practicing your Nihongo. Though there are jobs that do not require you to speak Japanese, learning Nihongo is a distinct advantage. It opens more opportunities for you both in terms of getting job prospects and generally having an easier time living in Japan. Some companies may require you to have a certain level of Japanese proficiency based on your JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) results. You can check out JLPT’s website for more information on the test and the advantages of the JLPT. 

8. Submit your application

Once you’ve prepared all the requirements, do your due diligence and double-check everything before contacting the agency. Visit them and ask for assistance so that they can guide you the rest of the way. 

 

What Are the Requirements for Getting a Job in Japan Through POEA-Accredited Agencies?

1. Job-specific qualifications

Depending on the job you’re applying for, you may be required by the employer to show specific documents or credentials to prove that you’re fit for the job. Some of the most common job-specific qualifications include: 

  • JLPT – This is the most widely known and recognized certification of Japanese language proficiency. The levels range from N1 to N5, with N5 being the easiest and N1 the hardest. Obtaining a JLPT accreditation is not a legal requirement for a visa or a hard requirement for many jobs in Japan. However, those with a total of 70 points or higher get preferential treatment at immigration. Having a JLPT accreditation is also concrete proof to an employer of your Japanese language aptitude, which can help get you hired. 
  • University Degree – Depending on the job you’re applying for, some companies have a hard rule of requiring a four-year degree from a university. It’s always a good idea to double-check with the recruitment agency. 
  • Others – There may be other job-specific requirements that your employer may ask for, such as TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication). As always, it would be prudent to ask the recruitment agency. 

2. Documents detailing the hiring company and position you were hired for

Every foreigner who comes to Japan for employment needs a Certificate of Eligibility (COE)3 from the Immigration Services in Japan. Your employer should be in charge of getting a COE application on your behalf. This is also a prerequisite before applying for a Japanese work visa. 

3. Japanese work visa

Working visas are classified by the kind of work or profession the applicant is engaged in. There are nearly 30 different work and long-term visas available for ex-pats. The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan lists the kind of visas as follows: 

  • Professor (Examples: university professor, assistant professor, assistant, etc.)
  • Artist (Examples: composers, songwriters, artists, sculptors, craftspeople, photographers, etc.)
  • Religious activities (Examples: religious people such as monks, bishops, missionaries, etc.)

Aside from the work visa categories in the list above, Japan has also introduced the specified skills visa (tokutei ginou) for foreign workers in certain labor sectors. The specified skills visa is further split into types: 

a. Specified Skills Visa 1-SSV1 – valid for 1 year and renewable for up to five years. Workers who have this visa are not able to bring their families with them. Skilled workers in the following fields are eligible for this visa: 

  • Agriculture 
  • Materials processing 
  • Nursing care 
  • Shipbuilding 
  • Restaurants 
  • Airport ground handling and aircraft maintenance 
  • Food and beverage 
  • Hotels 
  • Industrial machinery 
  • Electronics and electric machinery 
  • Building cleaning 
  • Construction 
  • Vehicle maintenance 
  • Fishery 

b. Specified Skills Visa 2-SSV2 – renewable indefinitely and workers with this visa may bring their family to Japan. Workers on Visa 1-SSV1 can apply for the Visa 2-SSV2 once they have achieved higher levels of specialization in their field. 

The last category would be the highly skilled professional visa4. However, this is only available for professions in advanced specialized or technical activities. Thus, they are rarely if at all found through POEA-accredited agencies.

For further details on the requirements specific to each kind of working visa, you can go to the website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA)

4. Philippine government requirements

Aside from your host country and employers’ requirements, the POEA has the following requirements to properly prepare you for working overseas. 

  • PEOS Certificate – the PEOS is an 8-module online seminar that’s designed to educate you about overseas job application procedures, documentary requirements for working abroad, and protecting yourself from illegal recruitment scams. The seminar is free and you can register through their official website.  
  • Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC) – all OFWs are required to have an OEC when departing for or returning to their work overseas. Also known as exit clearance/pass, the OEC is a document that certifies that you are legally registered under the POEA. As a perk, you can use it to get travel tax and airport terminal fee exemptions.
 

How Much Will It Cost To Go Through a POEA-Accredited Agency To Get a Job in Japan?

1. Placement Fee

There are no placement fees for workers to be deployed to Japan except for the following cases5

  • Entertainers (musicians, theater actors, or performance artists in broadcasting programs, movies, vaudeville, theaters, etc.) 
  • Models (models in fashion shows or other events, commercial models, art models) 
  • Scientists (those involved in research, planning, management, instruction of technical matters for business activities) 
  • Management Executives 
  • Skilled Workers (pass the technical skill test provided by Article 44, paragraph 1 of the Human Resources Development Promotion Act {Act No. 64 of 1969} for the special grade or the first grade or any corresponding skill, and provides businesses utilizing such skill for production or other business activities) 

Placement fees may only be collected from these occupations when they have earned at least 7 million yen or more in the first year since employment. Fees may be equivalent to 10.8% of their initial 6-month earnings after employment but cannot exceed one (1) month’s salary as per the Revised POEA Rules and Regulations Governing the Recruitment and Employment of Land-based Overseas Filipino Workers of 20166

2. Documentation Fees

Of the documents that you need when looking for a job abroad, the following are the ones with fees attached to them: 

3. Test Fees

 

Tips & Warnings

1. Until the end of February 2022, the new entry of foreign nationals is suspended to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Japan

You can coordinate with your agency if this7 will affect your application.

2. Keep yourself updated on the latest scams that you should watch out for

For reference, here are some common red flags that you might encounter:

  • The agency is not accredited with the POEA. You can verify the accreditation status of an agency by checking the list of accredited agencies on the POEA website
  • You are asked to pay by the agency before you can get a job or you’re being asked for more than the required placement fee. Recruitment costs should be shouldered by the employer. The placement fee is often waived, save for some exceptions. In those cases, the placement fee may only be collected when you have earned at least 7 million yen or more in the first year since employment. 
  • There is insufficient information about the job and the requirements. Avoid applying for a job that lacks details if the agency and employer are not willing to give you enough information about it. This is especially true for getting a job in a different country. 
  • There is little to no information about the employer on the internet. Most legitimate employers will likely have an official website or social media pages where you can find more information on them.  

3. Do your research on your potential employer

Learn more about the company’s culture and values, what exactly they do, how they conduct business, and how they treat their employees. All of these are important so that you can better gauge if you will be a good fit for the job.  

It is also an excellent way to prepare for your interview so that you can better answer their questions, and in turn, you can also ask them the right questions in preparation for getting the job.

3. Can I get a job in Japan without going through POEA-accredited agencies?

As a rule of thumb, there is a ban on direct hiring. As a result, all Filipino workers who will be working abroad will have to go through POEA-accredited agencies. Consequently, all foreign employers who will hire Filipino workers are required by the Philippine government to undergo a verification/accreditation process8 by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) and the POEA. 

But there are a few exceptions9

  • Members of the Diplomatic Corps; International Organizations; and Heads of State and Government Officials with the rank of at least Deputy Minister 
  • If the employer applied for an exemption from the ban, which will be subjected to POLO’s evaluation and subsequent recommendation for POEA’s approval

4. How do Japanese employers hire Filipinos through POEA?

Foreign employers, including those in Japan, must hire Filipino workers through POEA-licensed private employment and manning agencies to meet their manpower needs. If the foreign employer is a government entity or a government-owned or controlled enterprise, the latter can use the POEA’s Government Placement Branch to process its recruiting (GPB). 

Prospective employers interested in hiring Filipino workers should check the official list of licensed private employment agencies (land-based and sea-based) available at their nearest Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), Philippine Embassy/Consulate in their country, or the POEA website at www.poea.gov.ph. For agency referral assistance, the employer may contact the POEA directly
