When job portals and recruitment agencies fail in their search for foreign candidates

One of the challenges for the recruitment team in Poland was to recruit 5 Account Specialist to join the teams in Germany (with knowledge of German) and the Netherlands (with knowledge of Dutch and French). At that time, Trans.eu recruiters were conducting 30 recruitment processes for the headquarters, so their resources were very limited.

It quickly became apparent that without knowledge of the local labor market and direct outreach to candidates, the project would be difficult to execute internally. Attempts were therefore made to work with a German recruitment agency, but the agency was unwilling to recruit for lower level positions. It was then that Trans.eu decided to cooperate with Talent Place.

Crowdstaffing as a counterweight to foreign recruitment challenges

The Trans.eu project was supported by one of the Talent Place community recruiters who knows the German labor market very well and is fluent in German and French. Thanks to that, during interviews with the candidates she was able to communicate freely with them and immediately verify their language level, which significantly shortened the whole process.According to Elżbieta Elimer, HR Expert at Trans.eu: ,,For me, the cooperation with Nadia went great! She was very involved in the project and the information she gave us after the interviews with the candidates was so precise that we knew exactly who we should invite to the meeting”. Talent Place was tasked with providing 10 recommendations and the goal was met 100%.

Recruiter network and knowledge of the local labor market

Talent Place, through a networked community of recruiters, reached out directly to candidates who were a match for the potential role. As a result the project in the Netherlands was a 100% success.,,Great cooperation which at that moment fully met our needs. It was very important for us that the recruiter knew the local market and from the very beginning she showed us what challenges could we face. A recruiter who knows what people in a given country pay attention to and how they approach recruitment is a huge advantage during the process. Therefore I would definitely recommend Talent Place to other companies.” Elżbieta Elimer, HR Expert, Trans.eu
