The end of unsuccessful recruiting

The shortage of skilled workers is a hot topic these days. It’s very present in the media and keeps HR departments in German companies very busy. The background and reasons for this are generally well-known and widely discussed.
Ways out and solutions are needed urgently! We offer solutions to your staffing problems within the framework of intercultural approaches to the personnel development for your company!

We work with a network of schools, companies and individuals from various countries in Central and Eastern Europe with many years of cooperation experience based on trust and professionalism.

Make use of my vast experience, my excellent proven contacts gained during 25 years of work in Europe. Many years of cooperation with apprenticeship institutions in Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Ukraine and numerous West European countries created stable working relationships that you can benefit from.

The employment of foreign specialists is a challenge for every company. The integration of new team members may get difficult because of cultural differences, lack of knowledge about processes in German companies as well as language problems.

Based on our many years of experience, it is important to minimize all risks that could cause your potential foreign employees quickly lose their drive and motivation to work or learn with you. Good preparation saves time, gives you a faster return on your investment in recruitment and at the same time motivates new specialists.

This is how I create a win-win situation for job seekers and companies

Based on many years of experience gathered during numerous stays abroad and interviews, we take care of following matters in the course of preparation for recruitment and employment with your company:

  • Minimizing problems with the German language and, if necessary, another relevant language such as English
  • Sufficient knowledge about Germany as a host country
  • Information on the working atmosphere in Germany
  • Preparation for day-to-day contacts with new colleagues
  • Clarity about the required performance level
  • Clarification on the recognition of foreign professional or academic qualifications

In order to attract motivated specialists in mid- and long-term perspective, the following applies: We

  • Only cooperate with clients who treat foreign employees/trainees as equal to German colleagues in terms of labor law and finances.
  • Inform the applicants in detail about the living and working conditions, as well as the conditions offered by your company.
  • Know and respect the cultures of our applicants’ countries of origin and individually introduce them to everyday life and working environment in Germany.
  • Treat people who left their home countries for whatever reasons with empathy and respect
  • Follow a consistent concept and concentrate on mid- and long-term perspectives
  • If necessary, advise and provide internal trainings for the teams within the companies to prepare them for the work with new colleagues.

That is why foreign skilled workers and trainees are the solution to the shortage of skilled workers

Every company strives for lots of orders as well as qualified and motivated employees. Training and developing specialists in-house is a success factor for many. Recruiting young people for the company demands a great deal of marketing resources in the current state of the war for talent on the labor market. With our help you can find motivated candidates even in times of a massive shortage of skilled workers and with limited budget.

Despite attractive offers, there are very few German applicants for the jobs or apprenticeship in skilled crafts and trades. And the existing candidates often have poor preparation and poor academic performance. Hired foreign employees also often lack the relevant knowledge and practice due to different educational systems and professional requirements.

I offer you comprehensible and proven solutions for your recruiting tasks. Be responsible for own your development. Focus on motivated people from other European countries. With my help, you will find well-prepared and committed applicants for your apprenticeship positions. I find applicants abroad who check all the boxes and will be a perfect match for your company. Choose young applicants from the same cultural environment who will become an indispensable asset to your organization.
