Employers worldwide are facing challenges meeting their hiring needs. At the same time, talented refugees face barriers which prevent them from working and rebuilding their lives. By hiring through Talent Beyond Boundaries your organisation can gain a skilled and talented employee whilst also contributing to solving the global refugee crisis. We provide a full remote recruitment service including identifying suitable refugee candidates and assisting employers to conduct video interviews and skills validation. We also assist with the immigration and onboarding process.
