Finding Eastern European care and IT staff - quickly and easily

Our reason for specialising in IT professionals from Eastern Europe

The lack of so many experts in Germany’s IT departments is applying a tremendous pressure on digitalisation. Currently, many young IT professionals are being trained. But this is nowhere near enough to cover the current immense demand. If companies want to remain competitive, they must find new ways to deal with this shortage. Recruiting IT professionals from abroad is an obvious and easy solution.

Our reason for specialising in nursing staff from Eastern Europe

The health care system in Germany has been ailing for some time now. An ageing society as a whole is faced with fewer qualified medical personnel. In order to maintain the quality of health care at the same level, we are dependent on the help of foreign professionals.

What you need to know if you employ foreign experts

Questions and answers on the most important topics

Which authorities do I have to register with?

Which authorities in Germany must be notified before employing foreign skilled workers and during the employment relationship?

General: Regardless of the country of origin, the same registration laws apply to all: Notification must be made at the new place of residence within three months.

EU country: Vacancies in Germany can be filled by workers from the EU, the EEA and Switzerland without any conditions, provided the position is not in a regulated profession. For professions in the health sector, recognition must first be obtained.

Non-EU country: if you want to employ skilled workers from abroad who come from a third country, you need the approval of the Federal Employment Agency at the beginning. As an employer, you are also obliged to check the residence permit of the employees from abroad and keep a copy of it in the personnel files. If the employment is terminated earlier than originally planned, you must report this to the competent authority within four weeks.

Do you have questions on the recognition procedure? We have the answers! Contact us.

How long does the entry procedure take?

How much time should be allowed for foreign professionals’ entry procedure and what possibilities are there to speed things up?

Sometimes you locate an ideal candidate in a third country and could fill the vacancy directly. If you cannot wait the four months that the entry procedure usually takes, you have the option of applying for the accelerated skilled worker procedure. This shortens the process by up to two months. As an employer, you need the employee‘s declaration of consent for this. The contact person is the competent foreigners authority, which initiates and carries out the procedure.

Costs: An accelerated procedure involves additional costs of 411 euros, which are borne by the employer in accordance with Section 81a of the Residence Act.

What expenses should a company expect?

Costs for skilled workers from abroad.

The same conditions apply to skilled workers from a member state of the EU, EEA, Switzerland and third countries as to German workers. The duties are identical. The minimum wage applies. The recognition procedure incurs costs of € 600 on average, which will be covered by the employer.

How are Eastern European workers insured?

Insurance for foreign professionals.

Whether you are recruiting nurses, doctors or IT experts from Eastern Europe and whether you recruit skilled workers from abroad or Germany, the same conditions for nursing care, pension, health and unemployment insurance apply as for German employees.
