Having worked on recruiting multilingual professionals in the Mid-West, there is some high competition from clients on how to attract the best talent. Some of our clients are offering massive incentives to join their companies, in order to attract the right professionals whether that is here in Ireland or overseas.
The main areas where companies are setting themselves apart from others is offering relocation packages. Offering a significant amount of money towards the price of their flights. Offering accommodation for up to 2 weeks in either a hotel or B&B and also the possibility of the candidate’s partner joining them if they are relocating from overseas.
By offering these fantastic incentives it give us the recruiter an excellent starting ground where can broaden our searches to the whole of Ireland and Europe. Many people are choosing to move to the mid-west as the cost of living is much cheaper than some of the larger cities.
In the last 24 months there has been a massive injection of large multinational companies coming to the mid-west which is offering fantastic gateway to Europe and America. In the last 18 months us in Morgan McKinley have been involved in a number of the largest recruitment drives for multilingual start-ups and existing companies here in mid-west.
The main languages we are recruiting in are – German, French, Italian, Spanish, Nordic and Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Mandarin.
