In addition to meeting many great Spanish Nurses and Doctors, we want to reach out to the Filipino community in Spain. There are around many thousands of Pinoys in Spain, but most cannot practice their true professional and are forced to take low paid jobs as domestic helpers or private carers.
In Spain it is very difficult for Filipinos to work as a nurse or doctor, as their Philippine Degrees or professional qualifications are not accepted without extensive retraining. I have spoken to large numbers of Filipino trained nurses and PT's struggling to make ends meet - not even receiving a regular salary, despite the fact that they are Spanish passport holders (see photo below).
I advised them that if they move to London, Concept has hundreds of job vacancies for Nurses, Live-in Carers, Doctors, OT's and Radiographers. As Spanish citizens they are free to work anywhere within the EU under free movement directives.
Concept Care, who do not charge any placement fees, help candidates with accommodation, NMC registration and offer free training.
On a recent trip to Barcelona, we were delighted that Honorary Consul General Jordi Roches who took time out of his busy schedule to visit our job stand in Barcelona - pictured below with, from left to right, Charles Kelly, Marketing and Recruitment Manager, Cynthia Barker and Edith Fongho.
Later in Madrid, I took time out to pay my respect to the Philippine Embassy and to meet the Labor Attaché, Ma. Elvira Ador (pictured below centre with Charles Kelly and Cynthia Barker).
