We specialise in helping overseas professionals realise dreams of relocating to a new country, to experience a different way of life and new ways of working.
What does international recruitment involve?
Overseas trained psychologists need adequate local knowledge to ensure they make good decisions about whether a position, an employer, a location or a country will adequately match career aspirations or lifestyle needs. Guidance on local professional practice and service delivery is also crucial to preparing successful applications and enhancing interview performance. Generally there is just one chance with an employer so Psych-Recruitment pays particular attention to this aspect to help candidates give their best.
For both employers and job seekers recruiting internationally necessitates additional knowledge and processes. For employers there is the complexity of understanding a plethora of differently named qualifications, diverse training and professional regulatory systems and how to conduct robust credential checking and offshore selection processes. Not managed correctly good candidates get missed or become lost in, or frustrated by inadequate recruitment processes. Psych-Recruitment understands overseas qualifications and regulatory systems and the nature of service delivery in a range of countries. In addition, innovative and robust systems of credential checking and candidate support are offered, all aimed at addressing the barriers and blocks to sourcing needed skills.
Don’t forget to consider the locations!
Beyond employment it is also vital to consider whether a particular location will meet lifestyle needs. It can be easy to get carried away with the idea of living and working abroad and to forget to consider whether a town or city is really suitable to your requirements. If relocating with family it is also important to explore whether a particular location will adequately meet all parties needs, whether a partner’s vocational requirements or a family member’s educational needs. As settlement is as equally important as job procurement, Psych-Recruitment will focus on this aspect throughout the process.
Is it affordable and what about immigration visas?
Fundamental to working overseas is the ability to financially afford the relocation and the ability to obtain the necessary immigration visas for all parties migrating. The jobs that we market to an overseas job seeker will support immigration visas. However, there are also personal criteria that need to be met such as age, health and demonstrating good character. Psych-Recruitment will help you to obtain the information you need to determine immigration eligibility. In terms of funding migration we can also help you to develop a budget of likely costs and provide an indication as to whether any assistance from a particular employer may be available.
