We helped Teleste to recruit three software developers from the Philippines. The end-to-end global recruitment process included all formalities, from local recruitment to settling in Finland and support for the first year.
Teleste is a Finnish technology company that provides broadband networks, security, information technologies, and related services. Its offerings include solutions for cable and telecommunications operators, public transport operators, and security authorities. Teleste operates globally with offices and partners in over 20 countries.
A typical software developer role at Teleste involves designing and developing software for the company’s solutions, as well as testing and verifying their performance. Some typical obstacles in finding candidates for this type of position may include a highly specialized skill set required, competition for talent in the industry, and limited availability of experienced candidates in some areas.
Teleste was interested in exploring the possibility of strengthening its software teams with talents from Asia. The company had already invested in international recruitment by fortifying its talent acquisition team and reshaping internal processes to welcome international professionals in various positions.
The Philippines has become an increasingly popular destination for recruiting software developers due to its large pool of talented, English-speaking professionals and supportive government policies. Many international companies have established development centers in the Philippines, and the country has a thriving IT and software industry.
However, when recruiting software developers from the Philippines, it is important to carefully assess potential candidates’ skills, experience, and motivation – and to provide training on communication and work culture in the target country to ensure successful collaboration.
Northstar Talent and Barona have over a decade of history with one of the best local Philippine talent powerhouses – EDI Staff Builders. Collaboration is seamless, and even though all these cases need a bit of luck, a great local brand is needed to attract the best available candidates to the process.
In the Philippines, the formalities proceeded smoothly with the help of our partner, and when the time came, Finland Relocation Services took over the landing phase in Finland.
Northstar’s Talent Managers remained connected with the incoming people for the first year. And Teleste took care of the actual work-related duties and management. We did all we could to integrate and root people in Finland’s local lifestyle and work culture.
We helped to recruit three software developers from the Philippines. The end-to-end process included all formalities, from local recruitment to settling in Finland and support for the first year. The operating model for the first year is resourcing.
The customer was very involved in the process throughout the recruitment and provided guidelines for the process.
Even though talents are comparatively difficult to find, we found an ideal match for each target position. Throughout the process, Northstar Talent communicated closely with the candidates who carefully considered their decision to move to work to another corner of the world.
Teleste was able to guarantee a thorough consideration period for the candidates, which was highly appreciated.
Continuous communications, including face-to-face meetings, have continued during the first year of employment. The goal for us all is long-lasting and successful employment at the service of Teleste.
