For an SME with less than 20 employees, recruiting for jobs where the required skills are in scarcity is not an easy task…and the situation is even worse for a VSME.

In jobs where there is a shortage of qualified manpower, whether looking for a single candidate or putting together a complete team, is a relatively lengthy process: placing advertisements, reading each CV, setting up appointments, sorting, choosing… This all takes up essential time and therefore can penalize business.

We can look after all of it for you :

  • We will adapt to your work methods
  • We work using our network: professional instructors, companies from France and abroad, consultants, statistical survey firms.
  • We help identify profiles and candidates, who are happy to move to regions which are unpopular.
