The changing face of global talent: Why international recruiters and migrants need strategy

Whether you’re a business recruiting international talent or an employee looking for the perfect opportunity abroad, having a strategy is critical in order to achieve your goals.

This is a great time to think strategically. Borders won’t be closed forever, restrictions will gradually ease and global talent will start to move around the world again at a fast pace.

As a business, your goals might center on productivity, profitability and growth – and your international recruiting strategy would be tied to each of those areas. As an individual, your goals may be focused on personal growth, fulfillment, creating new opportunities, and supporting your family  – all critical considerations during your job search.

No matter what you choose to focus on, having a strategy is indispensable before starting in on a new work initiative or a major life change.

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential…these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” – Confucius

International recruiting strategy for businesses

An international workforce is diverse, vibrant, intelligent and creative, and employees from other countries often bring in a fresh, unique perspective that it isn’t as evident in local talent. There are scores of talented workers throughout the world, so there’s no need for a company to limit itself if international expansion is the goal.

Post Covid-19, Australia will become an even more attractive place for International talent which will likely supersede attractive places like US, UK and Cananda thanks to the way that the country has dealt with the health crisis.   Many businesses will have incredible opportunities to tap into once the pandemic settles.

At the Global Talent Agency (GTA), strategy is the first step in the proven 5-step framework that we’ve developed for employers and employees: Strategy.

It’s the first place we start and we recommend you start here too.

We develop a unique global talent strategy for your business, identifying global markets from which highly skilled professionals can be accessed to solve local needs.

Every business needs a unique international recruiting strategy. The focus points, goals, and specifics of your strategy will vary depending on your industry, needs, and vision for the future. A company that wants to recruit a few international employees for a specific project will have a different strategy than a large corporation that wants hundreds of workers from various parts of the world.

When developing a strategy, it’s wise to align with an expert to set reasonable goals and to create a workable plan. At GTA, we help our business clients identify their personnel needs, find global markets that can meet these needs and bridge the gap between companies and international employees. We also help companies navigate all the legal complexities associated with hiring international talent, so that business decision makers can focus on what matters most.

International recruiting strategy for individuals

Aspiring international workers also need to have a strategy for job searching. The job search in Australia may look different than the search in India, China or any other country, but that doesn’t mean that you’re destined to struggle. There are opportunities here for anyone who is willing to work hard – and many companies are searching for the skills that you have to offer.

GTA helps candidates from all backgrounds find rewarding work in Australia. Strategy is the backbone of our approach:

Positioning yourself and giving you confidence in the international talent process by having the right solutions in place from the very beginning to secure your dream role with a great Australian business.

It’s important to approach your job search with a strategy in mind. To approach your job search effectively, you need to consider your skills: what do you have to offer to an employer? What are your natural talents? What roles sound interesting to you? Where do you see yourself in five or ten years? The answers to these questions will guide your job search strategy.

GTA assists candidates with discovering what sets them apart and building connections with excellent employers. We start by educating you on the international recruitment process and then, we help you find opportunities that suit your needs and talents. Our ultimate goal is to help candidates find their dream jobs in Australia.
