Some countries strictly prohibit direct hiring and your employer and the recruitment agency needs to be accredited by government agency.  The government agency also normally regulates and registers all their people that leave the country to work overseas.  This is important for the government to stop human trafficking and to ensure the welfare and protection of their people.  

In the case of the Philippines, this role is undertaken by the Philippines Overseas Employment Agency (i.e., the POEA)

Many other governments only regulate the operations of their recruitment agencies to ensure that they comply with their laws and that their people are protected.

By registering with an approved recruitment agency, you will have confidence that they are required to ensure that your rights are protected.  Many candidates have sought to apply direct to employers and have found out too late that they are being illegally charged fees, or are being misled about the jobs and salaries that are available.

Recruitment Team will be in constant communication with you all throughout the process.
