As global citizens, we find ourselves, now more than ever, in a position to consider international career prospects.

An international career move can be a daunting exercise with a myriad of complicated processes. Often the country of choice lacks obvious information regarding the complexities of the job market and its hiring stakeholders. This factor in combination with a poor job search strategy often results in an extended search for suitable positions ultimately leading to unnecessary anxiety and poor career moves.

Through careful research and proven expertise, we, at Job Search International, have gathered a wealth of knowledge in hiring trends, CV structuring, and various other nuances across selected international countries that will ultimately affect your career move. Our Global Job Search Program ensures the establishment of a well-planned strategy that engages the market rather than relies on a reactive approach.

Hello Rob

I want to thank you for the work and effort, and need to inform that I was successful in the Turnaround Senior Manager position. This position is really a great fit and also on the same role category than my current role, so it’s really a blessing. Really appreciate all the good work, and will refer other friends to you.

Regards Willie



Hi Rob.

We went through the offer today, and looks good, I'm happy. I asked them to update from a 12-month contract to something more
permanent -which they were happy to do. So once updated they will send. They included a very decent relocation fee as well as travel/mobile
allowances, holiday allowance and bonuses, so overall very good. Regards Willem
