Case study: Moving from Milan to Frankfurt
For over six years, our Italian-born candidate had been working for a small medical sciences organisation based just outside Milan as a statistical head of programming. She wanted to move to a European country with a more stable economy, however with no languages other than English and Italian, her options were limited.
Hobson Prior solution
We managed to identify a position as a senior principal statistical programmer with a leading global organisation in the pharmaceutical sector based in Frankfurt, Germany, where the successful applicant would be able to work entirely in English.
Although extremely interested in the role, our candidate was concerned about moving to an area she knew nothing about. Her partner was due to move with her a few months later and they needed time to get to know the area and find a place to live.
We explained their concerns and, in response, the organisation offered six open-dated return flights and a salary that outweighed expectations. This was far more than expected and she was delighted. She accepted the role and moved to Germany four months later.
