Why is international recruitment so important?

If you want to make your company future-proof, competitive and innovative, you rely on international recruitment, among other things. There are many reasons for that. The most important are the shortage of skilled workers or the expansion of locations outside the known geographical area. This makes it easier to open up new markets and business areas.


On the other hand, international talents bring a different educational background and experience with them. The resulting synergies bring a breath of fresh air into a company and can profitably advance product development or strategic decisions. Last but not least, by recruiting international talent, companies avoid unfilled positions. Positions that would perhaps have to be filled with less qualified staff without these talents can also be filled adequately.

At the same time, we also talk about diversity in a company. Different cultural backgrounds within the workforce are exciting for young talents and specialists who value internationality in a company. Employers who opt for international recruitment automatically expand their pool of applicants. In this way, the search for suitable candidates can be tailored to your needs.

How does international recruitment work?

International recruitment goes hand in hand with digital (or rather, hybrid) recruitment. This small but subtle difference is easily explained. Digital recruitment focuses on computer-driven processes. In hybrid recruitment, the focus is also on the human and personal component.


At Lionstep, people always come first, because they are the ones we work for and with. We are constantly advancing process optimization with our internally developed and award-winning IT platform. But what would our work be without personal contact with our customers and talents?


At Lionstep, we use the best of both worlds. Data-based and AI-controlled processes enable us to contact talented people worldwide. And it’s just as easy for interested talents to get in touch with us. Either with just a few mouse clicks on the smartphone as feedback on a job advertisement that we send by email. Or via an individual candidate login directly on our website.


Modern methods of recruitment such as Active Sourcing or RPO open the awareness for internationality. Are you a company looking for high potentials, experienced specialists and the best talents? Talk to us, we will look for and find suitable candidates from an international talent pool.

Which companies are hiring international talent?

Companies in all sectors and sizes (almost) all have something in common: They are clearly feeling the ubiquitous shortage of skilled workers. It is often enough the reason why companies are downright blocked in their visions, goals and strategic orientation.


Companies that turn to the international talent market as a logical consequence therefore demonstrate strategic sensitivity. The inhibition threshold for the first international recruitment may be a little higher, especially for smaller companies. With Lionstep as a partner, recruitment abroad or recruitment from abroad is easy.

Jobs with mediation from abroad: This works for start-ups and medium-sized companies as well as for large companies. Here, too, the reasons for hiring are very different:


  • Opening up new markets or regions
  • Planning international product launches
  • Fresh input with the expertise of international employees
  • Positioning as an attractive employer: internal brand
  • Avoidance of vacancies in certain positions


With Lionstep as an international headhunter, you have an efficient partner at your side. Our many years of experience, our market and industry knowledge and over 900 satisfied customer companies are our best references. Contact us!

Recruitment international: contact to onboarding

As a company, you have recruited a talent from abroad, and both sides are looking forward to working together. And now? How can talent be well integrated into your own company? Of course we are happy to support you here as well. First indications can be the following:


  • Does the talent know where they will be received on their first day of work? Is the dress code clear? What documents do I need to bring with me?
  • Do I have to apply for a work visa?
  • What requirements must be met for remote work or home office?
  • Which applications must be made to the authorities?
  • Is a language course appropriate?
  • How is the accommodation situation? Is mobility guaranteed?


Those who value excellent employer branding are fully available as contact persons for new employees. Depending on the company philosophy, the focus may even be more on positions that enable remote work. Working where and when you want: For many specialists, this is the perfect solution. A laptop, a telephone, powerful Internet access – done.


Companies must, for example, take into account a possible time difference. Is there a core working time when everyone involved in a project must be available? Which way is chosen for the physical exchange of documents, if one should be necessary? Is periodic attendance required?
