Things an EU employer needs to know when choosing a foreign recruitment agency. Especially if there has been no experience of such cooperation

In business, as in life, many people are guided by the principle: “Trust, but verify”. Bright websites attract attention, pleasant managers describe fabulous offers, but whether behind this beautiful picture there is a real agency or it is another deception, we have to sort out.

We would like to share with you useful information on how not to fall into the hands of fraudsters and how to check the chosen recruiting agency.

In order to ensure that the company operates in accordance with all ethical standards and legal regulations, we recommend checking the availability of:

  1. Licence. The agency must provide a licence upon request. In addition, some companies make the licence freely available on the official website to avoid additional questions. Also check whether the agency is not operating under someone else’s licence, as such cases are also not uncommon.
  2. Legal address
  3. Foreign partners.

Each agency has copies of contracts with its European partners, a sample of which it can provide if necessary.

  1. And it is advisable to familiarise yourself with feedbacks of the company on the Internet.

In addition, we advise you to pay attention to:

  • positive work experience,
  • website availability
  • marketing activity of the company,
  • frequency of mentioning in social networks,
  • relevance of vacancies,
  • the presence of expertise of the agency’s core employees.

After all, all of the above in combination characterises the seriousness of a potential partner in the best possible way.
