Building the global model for migrant recruitment.
We’re a Philippine recruitment agency with a mission to set the global standard for ethical migrant recruitment.
We’re changing how recruitment is done.
Current standards of the industry have made it difficult for workers and employers to trust agencies as partners for work abroad. We know we can do better.
Honest Jobs is no ordinary recruitment partner. We make sure the right candidates are matched with the right jobs and are never charged placement fees. This way, workers truly benefit from working abroad, employers benefit from a valuable addition to their team, and the companies benefit from greater confidence in their recruitment process.
Our recruitment model is not only about individual success, but also impacting the broader market. For us, this is about fixing a broken system to make it work for millions of Filipinos.
We are currently awaiting our appropriate licenses from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).
What motivates us.
We are an ambitious local team, based in Manila, with a plan to connect Filipino talent to employers around the world. Our Board of Directors are a visionary group with strong track-records of creating a better future for Filipinos. Our team is ready to deliver high-quality service from search and selection to visa processing and follow-up, so that candidates and employers can focus on what they do best.
Fill in the form
Read the job details carefully before filling out the online application. On the form, tell us about your previous work experience. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
Schedule an interview
Make sure your contact details are correct on the application form. After reviewing your application, a team member will reach out to you to schedule an interview. The interview will help us understand your skills and preferences better.
Once you’ve interviewed with us, we will arrange an interview for you with the employer or company. This will be a chance to learn more details about the job.
If the second interview is successful, we will call you with the job offer. If you want to accept the job, we will take care of all the paperwork. We’ll help you prepare for what’s ahead and make sure you transition well into your new job.

A better way to hire
You’re searching for a recruitment solution that performs to the standards that you apply to the rest of your company. But the current market lacks the accountability, transparency and professionalism that you need. Honest Jobs was launched to fill that gap.
Recruit better, sleep better.
The world is changing. Companies and brands are increasingly looking to use their influence to make the world a better place. Protecting the brand from modern slavery is a key priority. Our approach provides you with clarity and confidence throughout the recruitment process. With Honest Jobs, your reputation is protected.
Pressured to keep up with competition, many recruitment agencies have hidden costs and pushed the burden to workers and employers. We’ve taken worker-fees out of the equation, and all the problems it brings with it. This is essential in creating long term, trusting partnerships. Our pricing is always transparent. No more hidden surprises, for you or your team.
A new service standard.
We’re setting a new ethical standard for migrant recruitment, and that means creating a new service standard too. Your employees are an extension of your brand, and we understand that. We’re applying the same thoughtfulness that’s behind your brand, to build your team.
As we work with you to select and hire candidates, we’re not just looking to match people into your jobs, we’re searching for people who’ll match your brand.
