Recruiter Case Study:


A London based recruitment consultant had located the perfect candidate for his client, the Laos office of a German investment bank. However the candidate was a foreign national who needed a Work Permit. They needed a local entity to sponsor the work permit, run the local payroll and make sure the contractor was fully compliant. A colleague referred the agency to and our local partner was able to step into the breach to arrange a Laos Business Visa before the end of the week and then process the Laos Work Permit with the consultant already onsite for training. This meant the assignment was able to start on time and recruiter went on to place 3 more consultants into the project.
