Hiring in the Philippines

The Philippines, made up of over 7,600 islands, is a highly diverse, multinational country that could be over 7,600 smaller countries if you had the time to explore each one. The Philippines has an intriguing history of immigration, conquest and colonisation, with Arab settlers and British, Spanish and American colonists and occupiers giving the Philippines the incredibly varied culture it has to this day.

The 12th most populous nation on earth with some 109 million inhabitants has grown into a highly-industrialised nation with extensive service and export sectors. The capital city and metropolis Manila plays a large role in the finances and governance of the Philippines, housing between 10% and 20% of all Filipinos.

Demand to hire in the Philippines is growing significantly, with a population that becomes increasingly better skilled and better educated, but with wages remaining comparatively low. Investing from abroad is possible, but certain socio-economic factors and slow bureaucracy mean an international payroll provider is a necessity.
