Hire internationally without having an HR department

Being a growing company involves prioritizing resources. Establishing an HR function across multiple geographies might not be feasible in the short term when the focus is on improving your product or service.

Hiring internationally doesn’t have to be hard! In this article, you will find out what’s the most effective way to onboard the best talent without having to worry about legal, HR, or geographical limitations.


Hiring abroad means a lot of paperwork and time. You need to create a separate company in every country, establish a separate payroll function and navigate legal complexities. Different countries have different tax and employment rules, laws, and regulations.

Hiring in a new country also means unfamiliar territory and often a different language. It might take you some time to localise your talent acquisition strategy, and how to effectively approach local talent.


If you are planning international expansion, outsourcing is a great option to consider. This service can make your life much easier by providing a comprehensive all-in-one package.


Outsourcing the talent acquisition function is a great, cost and time-saving opportunity where a local partner agency with a pan-European base becomes your external HR department and does all the hiring for you.

We recommend hiring an agency that can hire in many different countries. At Allen Recruitment, we have entities across Europe so we can effectively deliver on your talent acquisition strategy, as well as provide local payroll and HR support for all types of employment (permanent, contract, or contingent).

Our multilingual, local staff are able to engage and communicate with the candidates in their native language, building relationships, and trust.


You focus on growing and delivering your core business roadmap while we help you grow your team with full local HR, legal, and tax compliance. Moreover, you can get local market knowledge from our experts and can be prepared if you plan to expand further in the future.
