Im from the united kingdom, i visited Manila in may of this year and i was really impressed by the place....I intend to come over to Manila Philippines later this year around december of this year i intend to get a working visa and look for work in the Philippines ive had alot of sales and retail experance and ive also got alot of certificates as proof but due to me being from the United Kingdom do you think i would have a good chance of getting a job ?

As ive talked with some friends i have who live in the Philippines and they said it's hard to find work there....

Hi Nick,

It is very difficult for a foreigner to get a job here unless the type of skill that you have is unique which the locals cannot provide.

Furthermore, the salary is low as you will really find it tough to make ends meet unless you live like a Filipino.

Just a note, you cannot get a working visa here unless you have a willing employer already.
