Turkish professionals are also highly qualified candidates, ensuring that they meet specific skill gaps and needs effectively.

German Language Courses

For many job profiles, it is essential that candidates have a certain knowledge of German. For some professions, it is even required to apply for a visa. Additionally, German knowledge is an important factor for a candidate’s successful integration. Language skills are particularly crucial for candidates planning to work on a long-term basis in Germany.

Finding a candidate who fits your requirements and already speaks German is theoretically possible. But in most cases, candidates do not yet possess the necessary language skills.

Therefore, we can arrange German language courses for the identified candidates in Turkey. Different learning methods are available and depending on the requirements, the courses can be fully or partially financed by the client (the remaining part is financed by the candidate).
