ERinternational has a special service for clients developing in Eastern Europe, in addition to our normal search and selection activities.
Below are details of
Our service is designed for companies who want to establish a new branch office or daughter company (subsidiary), or expand an existing representative office, in one of the former Eastern bloc territories. We operate in particular in the Baltic States, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia and the Ukraine.
- help with infrastructure locally (search for plant or office premises, lawyers, find local employees: clerical and administrative but not operatives);
- conduct search and selection for executives (General Manager, Heads of Function, high level specialists);
- project manage the build-up.
Project management is always retained in an established and experienced ERinternational member company, to guarantee our quality standards. Where appropriate, we use national consultants in associate consulting companies, trained in the West and controlled by us, to deliver local knowledge and experience in the local market, including the domestic labour market.
Finding candidates and conducting the first interview is carried out either directly by our own consultants, or in a local office by the national consultant. These local consultants are experienced managers with good language skills, which are matched in the ER member offices.
Fees for local work are charged either as commission (for introductions), on a daily rate basis (for consulting), or at pre-agreed fixed fees (for recruitment). International search and selection fees follow the practice of the national (host) consultant company managing the project, usually based on a percentage of first year’s total remuneration or a fixed fee.
Our experience includes building up daughter companies and conducting other recruitment assignments in Poland, Hungary Ukraine, Czech Republic, Romania and Russia. We have associate companies in Bucharest, Riga (for the Baltic States), Kiev and Warsaw. We currently have clients in the automotive and capital goods industries, in engineering, in services (banking/finance/retail) and in software.
