Getting A Singapore Job Through Bangladesh Employment Agencies
Bangladesh Employment Agencies On Singapore Jobs
There are a number of Bangladeshi who want to enter Singapore to work. Though behind their Indonesian and Filipino worker counterparts in number, Bangladeshi workers in Singapore are increasing as well ever since the Southeast Asian nation expressed its desire to hire 45,000 female domestic workers from the South Asian country two years ago. But even before the announcement, Bangladeshi employment agencies are already importing male workers to the country.
Because of the high salary rate and minimal risk in the country, Singapore, along with Malaysia, is the primary option for Bangladeshi workers, who also consider the Middle East as their target destination. They earn an average of SGD600 per month. Many of them work in construction and marine industries in the more economically advanced country, though they are expanding in other fields.
The problem with some employment agencies is that there are those that take advantage of the people who are looking for a job opportunity in Singapore. Even if there are no job openings, some agencies still recruit people for profit. They encourage applicants to pay in exchange for an alleged job post in Singapore. As a result, many people are cruelly abandoned without employment after paying exorbitant fees.
Applying For Singapore Jobs Through Bangladesh Employment Agencies
To avoid being deceived by unscrupulous agencies, applicants are advised to only trust an agency if it has been approved by the Bangladeshi government. Every approved agency has been given a license number. Before applying through the recruitment agency, make sure that its license number is valid. Also, most legitimate Bangladesh Employment Agencies publish the recruitment requirements of their partner Singaporean employer companies on nationally circulated newspapers in Bangladesh.
Those interested to work in Singapore are required to pass the skill test at training centres recognised by the government. After passing the requirements, the recruitment agency will then give the Singaporean company the photocopy of the candidates’ passports, which will then be handed over to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of Singapore for In-Principle-Approvals (IPA). The workers who pass the IPA are given 3 months to come to Singapore for employment.
