Recruitment Advisor has coordination teams in different countries (currently in the Philippines, Indonesia, Nepal , Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Ethiopia, Hong Kong, Bahrain, Jordan). Together with several other organizations in each country, the team reaches out to the workers with the mission to raise awareness on the workers’ rights to be fairly recruited based on ILO General Principles and Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment and to encourage workers to share and learn about fair recruitment through Recruitment Advisor.

Here are the organizations that have been working together to make and manage RecruitmentAdvisor:

Since the issuance of Kepmenaker no 5 1998 on the registration of trade unions, many unions are established in Indonesia. This raises concerns among SPSI's board members. On the other hand, SPSI officials began to question their organizational form; which is in the shape of the Federation but the highest sovereignty in the hands of members, i.e. the people.
