Are you an employer in Brunei Darussalam who plans to hire Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs)? Then, here are the processes that you have to go through.
General Recruitment Process
- Choose a Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) licensed recruitment agency that will serve as your recruitment partner just like SubNet RTA. We search, recruit, document, process, and deploy highly skilled, professional, and competent workers from the Philippines to any international destination.
- Submit the documentary requirements to the nearest *Philippine Embassy for verification purposes. This process will normally take 5 to 15 working days. Documentary requirements include the following:
- Recruitment Agreement – An agreement between your company and your chosen recruitment agency stating terms that allow the latter to recruit workers for you.
- Special Power of Attorney – A document that gives your chosen recruitment agency legal permission to issue employment contracts between your company and the OFWs you are hiring before they leave the Philippines.
- Master Employment Contract – The master employment contract between your company and the OFWs you are hiring.
- Manpower Request/Job Order – A formal request from your company to your chosen recruitment agency seeking for specific personnel, their job description, etc.
- Business License/Commercial Registration (Foreign Principal)

If you have chosen SubNet RTA, we will be the one to submit your requirements to the POEA for accreditation, which can last either for a minimum of 7 working days, an average of 15 working days, or a maximum of 30 days.
- The recruitment process takes place from the moment we have received your signed Recruitment Agreement. Basically, the entire recruitment selection includes sourcing and pre-screening, interview (phone, Skype, or personal), skill/trade testing, final selection, and signing of letters. This process will take 7 to 20 working days.
