International Recruitment

Solve the labor shortage with international experts!

The recruitment of international experts becomes increasingly relevant every year when Finland’s own workforce is not sufficient. Every company needs to assess whether the required workforce is available in Finland or if they need to compete with other companies and raise wages. If you choose international recruitment, a whole new world of expertise becomes available to you. However, it comes with some challenges, such as the need to register employees with Migri, the magistrate, and tax authorities, depending on how long they will stay in Finland. There are many different rules, and compliance is not easy. At Dobra, we work on these issues daily and have processes for when and to which authorities employees need to be registered correctly and how we can get employees to Finland as quickly as possible.

How can Dobra help?

Registration with Finnish authorities is relatively straightforward once you know which documents need to be submitted and at what stage. At Dobra, we have streamlined the process, so we know immediately which documents each authority requires, allowing us to quickly and easily obtain the permits employees need to work and reside in Finland.

Customers don’t have to worry about administrative matters that come with hiring a person; instead, Dobra takes care of salaries and collective agreement follow-ups, etc.

Recruitment Services

Recruitment is a good option when you don’t want to use your own working time to search for personnel. Reviewing applications, conducting interviews, checking references, and complying with GDPR regulations require a lot of work. At Dobra, we have expertise in this area, and we have procedures and systems in place to make it as quick and smooth as possible.

International Recruitment

International recruitment is the process where companies search for labor from different countries to meet their specific needs. This may be necessary due to special skills or a lack of local labor. International recruitment typically involves handling complex immigration and visa processes, cultural sensitivity, and language skills. Dobra has been working with different nationalities from the
beginning and finds experts for various tasks!

AMADA Automation Europe hired an employee through Dobra when the number of applicants decreased for certain positions. "I would recommend companies to try it!

If a customer rents an employee from us, the customer can terminate the contract without notice during the probation period. The probation period is half the duration of the contract but no more than 6 months. If a customer wants to terminate the contract after the probation period has ended, the terms of the applicable collective agreement apply, or they wait until the fixed-term contract expires. If a customer wants us to recruit directly for them, they must ensure that the employment contract includes a probation period with the

We search for employees according to the customer’s needs and in countries where we feel we have enough contacts to conduct professional recruitment. Currently, we can handle recruitments in Europe without any issues and in large parts of Asia. Within the EU, the process is very fast if you want an employee for Finland. In that case, we can obtain all the necessary documents before the employee arrives in Finland. If we are recruiting from outside the EU, the process takes much longer because we need approval from Migri. The
duration of the process varies between 1-6 months depending on Migri’s workload.
