How International Mobility Can Enhance Your Recruitment Career

16 January 2017


In an increasingly global industry like recruitment, the advantages of international mobility are threefold. Firstly, you’ll add variety and value to your CV by including overseas experience. Secondly, you’ll get the opportunity to enhance your linguistic skills. And thirdly, you’ll expand your cultural horizons within an entirely new context. But what’s at stake when you relocate? And how can you ensure it’s a worthwhile move?

1. Consider where you’d go

Whether you crave the bright lights of New York City or the East-Meets-West spirit of Singapore, location is critical to your success. After all, how could you be effective in a place you don’t love? If you have family, it’s important you consider their thoughts and feelings on the destination – as well as practical things like living arrangements, education and healthcare.

2. Consider what you’d do

Getting the most out of your placement means finding the right role. Choose a company that can utilise your experience, and vice-versa, so you can build something impressive together. UK recruiters are a precious commodity overseas, so employers tend to offer very generous remuneration – and Oliver James Associates is no exception.

3. Consider the future  

If you can learn a new language, do it. If you can earn an international qualification, do it. Abroad, there are many avenues to take, and each one will stand your career in good stead. Gain as much from your time as humanly possible, and you’ll enjoy a journey as personally rewarding as it is commercially beneficial.

If you’re looking for a fresh start, Oliver James Associates has opportunities in 12 offices worldwide. Access to competitive sponsorship programs, global networking possibilities, and fast career progression are just some of the rewards you can expect, alongside attractive packages with market-leading benefits.
