Nothing is more stressful and frustrating than searching for your next job overseas.
Without the right connections, it can be difficult to determine exactly what international job opportunities are available or whether relocation and travel logistics support are available.
For these reasons and many more, it makes a lot of sense to work with overseas recruitment agencies.
Recruitment agencies for overseas jobs can help expedite and streamline your job search and ensure you find employment opportunities to push your career forward.
Believe it or not, working with an overseas staffing agency can make finding positions offshore and overseas a much simpler and more efficient process.
What key attributes should I look for in an overseas recruitment agency?
Working with the right international recruitment agencies can help you find a job and ensure you are safe and adapt to your new location.
To do this, they need to be highly adept and have a broad range of skills, including:
1. Local knowledge
Not all recruiters for foreign jobs can provide full overseas recruitment services to fit your needs.
First and foremost, recruitment agencies must have local connections in areas with demand for hiring programs.
Secondly, your agency should understand the demands and legal requirements of international work, global mobility, and relocation.
Having a global recruitment team with strong local connections within a region is crucial when it comes to finding niche opportunities, and providing confidence that you will be looked after on an overseas assignment.
2. Assistance with compliance
Similarly, that knowledge is key when it comes to compliance with local rules regarding immigration, human resources and labour regulations.
For companies looking to start projects globally, it’s important they are able to abide by the employment laws and regulations in each different region. And, the stronger their compliance process from day one, the better chance their projects will be successful, delivered on time and on budget.
3. Experience with mobilisation
Managing accommodation, local transport, school searches and other destination services in your new location can be a challenge.
Whether it’s organising a single visa and hotel, or moving a large number of workers through multiple countries, Airswift has the experience to help make jobseekers global relocation needs run as smoothly as possible.
4. Overall reach
Probably the most important skill an international recruitment agency has is their overall reach. This gives them a wider scope and pool of potential international jobs for you to apply for.
