I have been recruiting for the Fintech industry for the past 6 months and it involves working with multiple nationalities and in different time zones. This has given me the opportunity to develop my international recruitment skills supported by the internal learning and development programmes implemented by BPS World.
BPS World recruits in to many countries around the world including the Czech Republic, Latin American and Singapore. They are in a position to attract some of the best technology professionals required for the roles. It is important to understand that international recruitment has more complex processes than recruiting in the UK. When recruiting skilled candidates from outside the European Union, factors such as negotiation, planning, relocation, visa and salaries must all be considered. Managing the candidate and client through this journey takes longer and it is my responsibility to manage both parties’ expectations and enable a smooth process.
As a Recruitment consultant, it is vital that there is continued communication with both parties throughout salary negotiation, the role and relocation packages if required. Obtaining working visas can take up to 3 months and continued support of the candidate during this time is required. These are challenges which I am now experienced in dealing with and have systems in place to ensure the operations run smoothly.
The need for skilled talent will be an on-going necessity and this means BPS World will continue to grow globally alongside its clients, fulfilling their recruitment needs. This is an exciting time to be in the world of international recruitment.
