New Bulacan airport offers jobs for returning OFWs

- Advertisment -

San Miguel Corporation is offering thousands of job opportunities as it opens The New Manila Airport or also known as Bulacan International Airport. 

The mega project is expected to produce thousands of jobs in its construction. The company prioritizes local residents and returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). 

SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said that local residents of Bulacan will be prioritized for initial hiring. 

“We designed these skills training program with TESDA specifically to equip Bulakenos with the necessary skills needed to either work at the airport project, put up small businesses to support airport workers, or even start on their own elsewhere if they choose to do so,” Ang said.

“Over the next couple of years, construction of this massive airport will generate hundreds of thousands of direct and indirect jobs. We will prioritize local residents, but there will be so many jobs and livelihood opportunities that ultimately, workers will come from all over Bulacan, Central Luzon, even Metro Manila and southern Luzon,” he added.

Similarly, it will open employment opportunities to returning OFWs whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic. 

“A lot of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) had to return to the country in recent months after they lost their jobs. Many are not sure if they will be getting new contracts from their foreign employers given the difficult economic conditions. With this world-class airport project, those who will opt to stay home will no longer be separated from families and will have a viable option,” Ang said.

“We have so many talented and experienced Filipino skilled workers and engineers and they can really be an asset to this project. It’s a project they can be proud of, and tell their grandchildren about,” he added.
