The procedure is very simple.

You have to fill our E1 order form – which can be emailedto you. You can download it from our website. In this form, you have to write down very specifically who you need, what qualification and skills they should possess, and what are the general conditions of the contract, etc.

We prepare our quotation for our service based on the completed form. After the Client’s approval, we start the recruitment process.

We start searching for suitable candidates.

Before we send you any CVs, the Terms and Conditions must be signed. There are no obligations arising by signing the Terms and Conditions, except the obligation to use our mediation service if you decide to hire people presented to you.

We send you CVs of all the candidates we believe are suitable for the job and meet all of your requirements. All the CVs are in our standardised format.

Any candidate you show an interest in will have their qualifications verified and all their references checked. A criminal records check can be arranged on your request.

After you have chosen the people you want to hire, we then agree the price and sign a contract. In case of bigger orders with many staff required, especially in the case of new Clients with no history of cooperation, it is advisable to split the order and deliver the workers in turn. It allows the completion of the order to run more smoothly and gives us the ability to adapt to the Client’s needs and expectations.

If the worker will work for longer than 6 months or will be employed in a permanent position, the Introduction Fee is equal to the introduction fee for a worker who will work for 12 months.

In the case of periods shorter than 6 months, the rate for the fee paid weekly/monthly applies according to the actual duration of engagement.

Our policy is to use fair rates. Brit-Ro Consultancy remuneration is determined by a few factors. The rate reflects the cost of recruitment and in the case of general labour, it is relatively low. For skilled and semi-skilled workers, higher rates apply. The remuneration of workers generally reflects their skills and qualifications and therefore the Terms and Conditions show the Brit-Ro Consultancy rates in relation to the employee’s remuneration.

The introduction fees range between 3.5% and 10%. For more details see the Terms & Conditions.

Despite relatively low rates of remuneration, Brit-RO Consultancy makes the best possible effort to provide a premium quality service. We look for people with high levels of qualifications, professionalism and motivation to work. In case of specific recruitments, we may ask the Client to agree an additional advertising budget to support the recruitment campaign.

You should pay market rates, the same as you would pay any other person of similar experience and skill, doing the same job. Unequal pay, as well as any discrimination on the ground of race, nationality or ethnic origin is unlawful and workers paid below market rates quickly start looking for better paid jobs.
Brit-Ro Consultancy never supplies workers if there is no accommodation organised. If the Employer provides accommodation, then it makes the process faster and easier and the remuneration expectations are lower. If the Client is unable to provide accommodation, Brit-Ro Consultancy will, at the very least, try to find temporary accommodation for the workers. We will say that due to the cost of accommodation it is very difficult to recruit candidates who will have sufficient funds to cover the costs of renting accommodation upon their arrival.

As an employee they can terminate the assignment, according to current labour legislation by providing a suitable notice period. However, fairly treated employees, especially coming from abroad, will almost certainly stay and work till the end of the contract..
The procedure, from the moment you place an order until you physically meet your employees, in normal circumstances, takes no longer than three to four weeks.

If you are looking for someone sooner – please tell us and we will try to organise the workers for you as soon as possible.

Most people are looking for a permanent or medium-term position. However shorter contracts are also possible. We recommend a minimum of 3 months. However, if you are looking for someone for a shorter period, we will take it into consideration.
Brit-RO Consultancy makes the best possible effort to provide workers that exactly match the Client’s criteria. However, if the workers are not suitable:
• the Client should terminate the employment and claim a refund from Brit-RO Consultancy. During the first two weeks, the refund is 100%. After this two week period, a refund schedule applies.
We may ask you to explain the nature of unsuitability as this will help us to avoid the situation from repeating in the future and determine what steps we should take in relation to the worker.
The Client should specify the required level of English at the beginning of the recruitment process. Generally, the younger generation have a much higher level of English. White collar workers, doctors and other highly qualified professionals present a good level of English language competence.

In some professions, good knowledge of English is very rare ( Construction workers, Plant Operators) but it does not exclude the high quality of work and professionalism. In most cases, the best solution is to organise teams, where workers with a poor knowledge of English are accompanied by a worker who has good English skills. This does not increase the cost to the employer. Brit-RO Consultancy can organise such teams and the Client can be sure that communication will not be a problem. Such an English speaking person would not only work as a translator but would generally be the foreman of the group and would also work in his own profession (if applicable).

Yes, we offer training for candidates, including intensive English courses, also specialist English courses and training for specialist qualifications. Also, it is possible to organise a custom course ordered by a customer.
