International recruitment assistance

An international expert can make a significant contribution to the success and growth of a company if they are familiar with the business culture of the target market country. We offer several services for recruiting international experts. We are also part of the national Talent Boost network, which helps with practical matters related to the acquisition of foreign labour.
