Employment agency licence in Ukraine

Employers around the world have valued the employees they can hire in Ukraine to work abroad for many years. The high qualifications of Ukrainian personnel and relatively low wages in Ukraine make working abroad extremely attractive, and at the same time, makes it possible for foreign businesses to offer such workers competitive salaries.

This applies to both seasonal workers and seafarers or IT specialists - all of them in Ukraine have the necessary qualifications that suit foreign companies. But such employees not only need to be found and working conditions agreed upon with them, they also need to be officially hired. For this purpose, for a long time in Ukraine there were private agents and companies with a special license for employment abroad. This means that such firms ensured the protection of the interests of both employees from Ukraine and the employer from abroad, bringing them together.

With the beginning of the war, the situation changed somewhat. Many Ukrainians now have employment opportunities in different countries. For these and other reasons, the state decided to abolish the license for employment agencies. Instead, you now just need to fill out a Declaration, which has greatly simplified the whole process.

At the same time, clients still contact us with similar requests. The fact is that the fact that such a license has been canceled in Ukraine does not mean that a cautious foreign employer will not ask for it. In such a situation, we can offer two options:

1. Buy from us a ready-made company with an already-issued license - we have such;

2. We will obtain the appropriate declaration for you;

3. Provide the agency with the necessary documentation in addition to the license, which will demonstrate to the foreign employer their professionalism and legal training.

Recruitment agency licence in Ukraine

Despite the fact that the activities of a recruitment agency are no longer highly regulated, this type of activity still requires attention and careful documentation. It is in your interests to attract a large foreign partner, receiving a profit in the form of a commission, and establishing close partnerships with him.

Such a partner will primarily be interested in the legality of your actions and professionalism, which can be confirmed in a simple way - by showing the organization of your processes and providing legally correct drafts of at least employment contracts. Remember, your partner will be guided by the laws of his country, while you need to take into account the laws of Ukraine.

This is exactly the kind of registration that our lawyers are currently doing, who have been helping to obtain a license for recruiting agencies for more than 10 years and have supported their activities.
