    I have been involved with Engineers from all over the world, but not one yet has been from the Philippines. Everywhere but - almost.

    I have recruited several Filipino engineers and and I can assure you that, in my experience, you will not be disappointed should you select one. I am talking in the fields of Broadcasting, Telecommunications and IT/Networking. In my experience, not only are they competent engineers, they are hard working, polite and generally good people.

    My wife works in HR for Network R and says there are quite a few Filipinos employed with quite a few Filipinos applying (mainly in engineering).

    I have come across a couple of Filipino mechanical fitters recently and four machine operators where the later were husbands of nurses.

    Have a look at the Network R website, they have a portal for vacancies and employ over 30,000 people around the UK.

    There's a local lad here near Liverpool his wife is a nurse in one of the local hospitals not sure which one, we got to know them in 2010, Chris works in the realm of electrical engineering I think, they have been here a long time, a long time prior to 2010, they were great friends for Ana when she was here in 2010, I took papers back over to Manila in 2010 so that Donna's mother could come over for a visit.

    I just got my spouse visa and been applying for jobs for nearly two weeks. So far, no calls yet. I'm an accountant and has big 4 audit experience as well. How long did it take for you to find a job?

    No she isn’t a visitor of the forum.

    Well like many things us foreigners discover in the Philippines, some things just stick in the mind. I guess mine, amongst others things was halo-halo though I suppose my username could well have been siopao or bibingka :D
