Many are called, but only a few are chosen.
Opportunities to work abroad are scarce, being deployed abroad with an ethical recruitment agency is a golden opportunity of a lifetime. Every worker is expected to treasure the limited chance to earn better and become successful by just being a hardworking and responsible flag bearer of the country while overseas.
Here is the first installment of success stories we collated from our successful hires deployed to different parts of the world.
Ramel Tanon Sofranes was deployed to Russia to work as a tig/arc welder for Cherepovets and Yamal LNG Gas Plant project for Renaissance Heavy Industries (RHI) during our first batch of deployment, last March 2016.
Ramel shared that he came upon an advertisement from Rensol in Facebook. He tried his luck to apply where he passed the skills trade testing without any fees to pay. He was urgently deployed to Russia with his qualifications.
He survived to withstand working for 10 hours during the winter season with an extreme temperature of negative 30 degrees Celsius.
“Mahirap mawalay sa pamilya, mahirap dahil sobrang lamig, mahirap communication doon, mahirap salita nila, pero pagdating sa trabaho, kayang kaya (It is hard to live far away from your family, it’s hard because it is too cold, it’s hard to communicate, their language is difficult to understand, but when it comes to working, everything is doable.),” he shared.
Ramel was sent to the good hands of RHI who he claims to be very good as employers.
“Maganda at walang bitin ang sahod, ayos din naman ang accommodation (It is good and there is no delay on salary, the accommodation provided for us is also great.),” he said.
Thousands of Filipino skilled professionals were already deployed to Russia. Filipino workers were tapped and have been provided with a quality job opportunity through Rensol Recruitment’s partnership with most of RHI’s gigantic projects.
This opportunity definitely helped his family to reach the greener pasture in life.
“Nais ko lang magpasalamat sa inyo (Arnold Mamaclay) at sa Rensol dahil nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon.. thank you very much sa Rensol agency at wala akong ginastos at ako’y nakaalis patungong Russia (I just want to thank Rensol because I was able to fly to Russia without paying for anything),” Ramel said.
Renaissance Heavy Industries (RHI) has been one of the long-standing satisfied partners of Rensol in providing quality job opportunities to Filipinos for almost five challenging yet productive years. Some of RHI’s projects which involved Rensol’s manpower services are Yamal LNG Plant, Gas-To-Gasoline Project (GTG), Turkmenhimiya Ammonia and Urea Plant, Sibur Tobolskneftekhim Polypropylene Plant, Phosagro Ammonia Plant, etc. Rensol has provided thousands of pipe fitters, scaffolders, welders, and riggers to the said projects, both in Russia and Turkmenistan.
RHI contracted Filipino workers from Rensol Recruitment to man its mechanical, construction, civil activities, and other EPC services which includes concrete works, steel erection, equipment erection, heavy lifting, piping works, cable pulling, insulation, and painting.
Ramel was able to buy his own car, which he uses as a source of income here in the Philippines. He is now working as a full-time driver for the ride-sharing service mobile application, Grab.
Rensol, being an ethical recruitment agency, reaches out especially to the less privileged Filipinos to alleviate their lives. The agency doesn’t collect anything to make opportunities attainable even by those in the poorest of the poor. That’s why it is with great delight that we celebrate even the smallest successes of our deployed workers overseas.
