Many businesses find it hard to take advantage of overseas business opportunities simply because they lack the language skills or cultural knowledge that potential clients are expecting.
This is where PromoLingua comes in. We specialise in helping you recruit multilingual professionals offering candidates who have the business skills you need in your company. Candidates who are also fluent in the languages you need to successfully do business internationally, whether the major trade languages such as French, German and Italian, or something more specialised, perhaps Arabic, Russian or Japanese (check out the complete list of languages that we cover).
The great thing about PromoLingua is that you get to choose who you actually recruit and we'll use our experience to bring the right types of people to you. After we've screened our applicants, we'll send you their CVs and let you decide who you want to interview so you can choose someone who's just right for your company.
PromoLingua works across all of the major business sectors so, if you're serious about beating your competitors to international contracts, then call or email today and find out how we can help you recruit just the person you need.
Lacking the Key Language Skills?
European Commission research suggests that lack of language skills or cultural knowledge that potential clients expect is a common problem in UK businesses. Your company may be just what your potential client is looking for, but you fail to get this across because you don't speak the language well enough or you offend them by misunderstanding something fundamental about how they like to do business.
Fortunately, the European Commission has found a way that companies can successfully solve this problem, dramatically improving their business opportunities and giving them the edge over competitors.
The answer is that simply by recruiting candidates that are fluent in foreign languages as well as having the other skills your business needs, you know you'll have someone on-hand to make sure you're never let down like this again.
PromoLingua. A High Service Recruiter
Our business background means that we recognise the key factors that will really make a difference to your chances of success.
"Getting by" is simply not enough. You know who you would give the business to given a choice between a pitch given in perfect English and one given in broken English. First impressions count and so does professionalism.
PromoLingua really understands the need for fluency. We'll offer you candidates that are competent in the languages that are most important in your business. Better still, they'll have the other skills you'd expect from someone in their role, so you can be confident that they'll show off just what your company can do and make that great impression.
Have you ever been in a foreign country and felt just a little out of place? All cultures have slightly different ways of doing things, which although sometimes seem trivial from the outside are incredibly important to the people who live that way. You have probably heard, for example, that in Japan the presentation of business cards is a solemn event. You will seriously insult your hosts if you just stuff a proffered card into your pocket!
Cultural differences in international business can be a minefield. That's why PromoLingua recruits candidates who both speak the language of your prospective clients and know the cultural do's and don'ts of working with them. This means that you can make sure you keep your prospects happy and let them know you respect their culture like you'd want them to respect your own.
This is an area that most businesses can really learn to exploit. If you don't have someone in your company who can speak the same language as your foreign contacts you could be missing out on a wealth of intelligence on client requirements and market conditions that could just be the difference between success and failure. And if your prospects are trying to get more information about you, then having a linguist on your team means that you can tailor your marketing communications just right.
PromoLingua is here to help you find just the right candidate who can give you the edge over your competition and help your company on the way to international success! Just contact us and we will be able to help.
