International Search

Nova International’s clients rely on us as international recruitment specialists because of the strength of our networks across the Middle East, Asia Pacific, America and Europe. Hiring specialist roles, they know that building talent from across the globe makes sound business sense. 

Drawing upon senior, specialist talent from an international pool of candidates will increase the possibility of finding the best talent for your role. This is a great solution where there are talent shortages in particular geographies or sectors and will also help to advance developing countries who will struggle to recruit talent locally.

When you look for talent all over the world, you increase the possibility of finding the best talent from global markets. In Sweden there is currently a shortage of skills in certain occupations. One solution is to recruit from other countries.

Why recruit internationally with Nova International?

Having recruited globally for the last 19 years, we understand the different rules and laws which impact recruitment in different geographies. For example, the legal system and medical systems in various geographies can slow down the recruitment process and based on our experience, we can advise our clients on what a realistic timescale is for their recruitment assignment.

Visas and immigration are all detailed specialisms and it takes a trusted provider to ensure that the relevant checks are made (and realistic timescales are relayed back to the hiring client).

We know that attention to detail is critical in international recruitment, so we can offer our clients additional services to support International recruitment:

  • Passport checks are done as routine
  • Detailed referencing and screening procedures to prove certifications
  • Criminal checks to ensure that every country the candidate has lived in has been checked
  • Visa and immigration checks are detailed specialisms that should be carried out by a trusted provider

One often overlooked issue is the requirement to repatriate an entire family, which involves finding new schools and housing, to support a candidate’s international move. Having worked as an international recruiter for many years, we have repatriated numerous families so can offer this additional service if a client requires support in this area.
