In the first part of the program we will evaluate the candidates’ preferences, skills and design an individualized hiring plan and timeline. Candidates will then collect and submit documents required for the Qualification Recognition and complete their professional profile.
In the second stage of the journey, we will match candidates with employers based on each of their preferences, and coordinate interviews and employment contracts.
In the third stage, we process the candidates' qualification recognition and obtain their work authorization. We support candidates in the training required in order to become a Registered Nurse in Germany.
In the fourth step of the process, we support the candidates and employers in obtaining a work visa and organizing travel to Germany. We offer relocation and integration trainings.
Then in the final step, we welcome the candidates in Germany and assist with arrival logistics and integration. Candidates will then begin their QR and language courses, and prepare for the exams.
We offer the highest recruiting standards across every sourcing region. Our unique platform enables effective and transparent matching between employers and candidates, and allows you to track every step of the recruiting process at a glance. We are committed to long-term service, support and integration.
