Tap Into A Global Workforce To Find The Right Staff

It is hard being an employer or even an HR manager these days. You have a hard time filling your vacancies with the right staff. Up to 70% of businesses worldwide report that they are not able to spot suitable job candidates locally, according to a number of recent surveys.

Crucially, your existing members of staff do not have key competencies that could help your business go the extra mile: language skills, IT savvy or just a global mindset, to name a few.

They don’t make them like this anymore, you may be thinking, reminiscing of the times when hiring locally was easy and efficient. True, but only half the truth. In fact there is no skills shortage worldwide. On the contrary, many countries, such as China and India, have scaled up their education infrastructures to provide their youth with much-needed training and skills.

Practically, your problem is a location mismatch: your dream candidates may be somewhere out there in a faraway country, probably unaware that their dream job are waiting for them overseas.

 

We can help 

 

 

Luckily for you, things are changing. 64% of workers worldwide say that they are looking for opportunities abroad. This is a new generation of mobile workers, ready to make the big step overseas, driven by professional ambition, fear of unemployment at home or just sheer desire for adventure.

They are confident, globally minded and fearless. Not without a reason. Moving abroad can be financially rewarding; EU workers for example increase their salaries up to 30% when taking up a new position in another European country.

The language barrier used to be an insurmountable obstacle, but not anymore. Two out of three skilled jobseekers under 45-years-old are proficient English speakers who can interact with colleagues and customers in a professional context.

You are probably thinking: How do I touch base with these bright young things? A reasonable question, given that so far there was no mechanism that would match employers with mobile workers.

Not until Movinhand came along.

Movinhand is a new digital platform that connects your business with mobile skilled workers who are looking for fixed-term employment anywhere in the world.

Far from a conventional recruiting job board, Movinhand is a professional matchmaker that helps you hire the right staff in a cost-effective and timely manner.

Movinhand’s mission is to add a much-needed holistic approach to international recruiting. These are some of the key elements of its offering:

1) Audiovisual material and innovative communication channels that enable you to screen, contact and rate applicants. Jobseekers can upload videos and other materials to present themselves and showcase their key competencies and work experience. This allows you to see with your own eyes whether a jobseeker is personable, fluent in your desired language and in general the perfect match for your vacancy.

You can even touch base with them - formally or informally - through our communication channels to see whether their ambitions match your own. When push comes to shove, you can rate and compare various candidates to make the right decision. Last but not least, you can check their references and referrals to make sure that they can be trusted.

2) Virtual job offer letters signed by employers and successful applicants. These are binding documents that ensure a smooth recruitment process without any undesired surprises. You will never have to worry about hiring unreliable workers who will disappoint you before they even arrive to your country.

3) Mobility, relocation and short-stay immigration services for selected candidates. Among other things Movinhand is a digital relocation and immigration advisor, helping many successful candidates, or Movinhanders as we like to call them, make a smooth transition to a new position in a foreign country. We tell them what paperwork they need; we provide a range of travelling and housing options; we help them feel at home when moving abroad.

Last but not least, you will never have to worry about the reputation of your business. We sift all vacancies according to the highest standards of quality to ensure that we partner with credible and prestigious businesses. This is a club you want to join, so hurry up to become a member!
