We Start Foreign Care Worker Human Resources Consultation Support
Japan International Corporation of Welfare Services (JICWELS) as the one and only Coordinating Organization in Japan since 2008 has accepted over 5,600 nurses and care worker under the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA). We continually strive to provide support to nurses and care worker candidates and also Accepting Facilities through the Acceptance Support and Consultation Support.
With the increasing of the foreign care worker acceptance system*, we will always provide support to Acceptance Facilities so that they can understand the purpose and mechanism of each system. We also provide support to foreign care worker so that they can feel interest to work at Japanese health care facilities, and be able to use their experience and expertise while working comfortably.
*The foreign care worker acceptance system consists of EPA, “Care Worker” VISA, Technical Intern Trainee, and Specified Skilled Worker.
