Recruiting top talents who have local knowledge
The persistent shortage of ICT resources, particularly in Finland, highlights the need for international recruitment. By broadening the scope of recruitment to foreign experts, the talent pool can expand exponentially. For instance, Finland has only about 22,000 experts in the C++ programming language, while there are estimated 1.8 million such experts in India.
International recruitment services are ideal for projects that require an expert with knowledge of the local market. Such was the case with PT Bank Amar, which needed to find a technically skilled ICT professional.
“Amar Bank was in need of a skilled IT expert with knowledge of the local market. Due to the uncertainty brought about by the pandemic, recruitment in Finland seemed difficult as many skilled individuals were not keen on changing jobs. We chose ICT DIRECT as our partner due to the simplicity and trust we had established earlier.” Toni Heiskanen, Lead Data Scientist at PT Bank Amar.
Technical assessments aid in differentiating qualified candidates from unqualified ones
ICT DIRECT offers a turnkey international recruitment service that enables hiring employees through Try & Hire, personal leasing or directly to the company’s payroll. The service is designed to find competent people for both remote and local jobs, based on the specific needs of each company.
In addition to the standard recruitment process, we include technical testing of candidates prior to the interview phase. This ensures that only qualified professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the industry are able to proceed. Real-time monitoring of the testing process ensures that only the most suitable candidates are selected for the interviews.
“The plan is to continue the partnership with ICT DIRECT as needed. We may require their services for other departmental needs in the future. We were particularly impressed by ICT DIRECT’s applicant testing process, which saved us a lot of time and provided us with qualified candidates for interviews immediately.” Toni Heiskanen, Lead Data Scientist at PT Bank Amar.
