Plumbing Jobs in High Demand in the Middle East

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Plumbing jobs are in high demand in the Middle East particularly in Saudi Arabia.

I went to the POEA website today and found out that there quite a lot of approved job orders for plumbers for Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries such as Kuwait, Qatar and UAE.


A Plumber busy with one of those plumbing jobs.

Plumbers install, repair and maintain pipes, fixtures and other plumbing equipment used for water distribution and waste water disposal in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

That isn't just for this month alone. By my count, approved job orders for Plumbers were:

January 2011 - 129
February 2011 - 210
March 2011 - 309
April 2011 - 291
May 2011 - 307
June 2011 - 106 (June 15 the latest date)

You can view the approved job orders for plumbers in June, here. Or you can check them out yourself at the POEA website.

And that is not counting those job orders tagged as "Open". There are other countries that need plumbers as well but the bulk of the approved job orders are for deployment in the Middle East.

The recent discussion between labor officials of the Philippines and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia about refroms in the Saudi labor system augurs well for those Filipino plumbers hoping to use their skill there and earn enough for their families here.

The reforms discussed were:
  • The recognition of “intermediary hiring firms" that will serve as sponsors and co-employers of workers and who will be responsible for the OFWs' welfare and protection;
  • A mandatory, broad-range insurance for OFWs; the premium will be paid by employers;
  • A new remittance scheme for OFWs; and
  • The expansion of e-government facilities, an associated wage protection system, and better enforcement of existing regulations, including the establishment of 24/7 hotlines to receive workers’ complaints in various languages, including Tagalog.
Plumbing is skill that Filipinos are good at. Here's hoping that these plumbing jobs in the Middle East will help many Filipino plumbers showcase their competence in this trade skill and help their families in the process.
