What do expats have to do to work?

In 2018, Cigna, the world’s largest employer of expats, announced it was offering expats an opportunity to work in its health and personal care businesses as an expatriated specialist, an initiative aimed at recruiting more expats to its operations in the UK and overseas.

This was done via a partnership with expatriation consultancy Kroll Associates, with the hope that the skills expats bring to the organisation will help it to attract and retain more British expats.

The plan is to double the number of expat specialists in the company’s UK and Ireland operations over the next three years.

While the new Cignas new initiative is the largest in the sector, there are many other companies looking to recruit expats as well.

“Our new strategy aims to attract a larger number of international expats and local workers,” Cignal chief executive and co-founder and head of business development for India, Suresh Jain said in a statement.

“This initiative also aligns with our commitment to expand our global workforce in the coming years.”

In an interview with the Financial Review, Jain noted that Cignar’s aim was to attract more expat talent to the UK through a variety of initiatives, including an expanded recruitment drive, expanded language opportunities and increased job placement opportunities.

In addition to expanding its recruitment efforts, CIGNA also aims to recruit more British nationals into its UK operations through a partnership called ExpatCare, which aims to assist expats with job searching and finding accommodation.

This is aimed at bringing in as many expats from the UK as possible, which is part of the company ‘s commitment to diversify its business.

“We’re trying to recruit as many British nationals as we can,” said Jain.

“As we grow, we’re also working with more people from the rest of the world to come here, which will create jobs for people in our UK business.”

It was also announced that CIGNAs own subsidiary, Expat Care UK, has opened a new recruitment office in London, which has been dubbed the UK recruitment office.

“In our current environment, the UK recruiting office is a good fit for us to be able to provide our UK staff with the opportunity to access more international expat opportunities,” said Cignara’s UK recruitment manager, Lisa Hallett.

“It also provides us with the best opportunity to connect with local employers and recruit the right people for our businesses.”

With the new recruitment scheme, CIRL, the largest expat recruitment company in the world, is now looking to hire British expatriats as staff and help them find work.

“The recruitment of expatriants is not only a great way to bring in new people to the country, but also to strengthen our global network,” said Daniel Poulter, CIDF chief executive.

“Expats can help us with recruitment, while also helping us provide them with the skills and experience to get jobs in the local economy.”

In a bid to attract expats in the region, CIGAR, a recruitment consultancy, has also launched an internship program in London.

The internship program aims to help expats gain valuable skills in the health and social care sector and also help them develop a rapport with local colleagues.

It has already recruited four new expat students.

“Expatriates are uniquely positioned to understand and interact with local people and work in the workplace,” said the firm’s managing director, David Jones.

“Their diverse experiences and professional skills enable them to effectively work alongside local professionals and achieve greater outcomes in the wider UK economy.”

The recruitment of more expatriatives has been welcomed by CIRELA, which said the new initiative was “a big step forward”.

“It is a win-win for the expat community and the UK economy,” said Alex Taylor, CEO of CIRELS.

“There is a significant demand for health and care professionals in the city and it’s an opportunity for more expatiates to gain employment in a new way.

This new initiative, along with other initiatives like the Expatcare and the Expatriate Health and Social Care initiative, will create opportunities for more people to gain skills and gain experience in the workforce.”

The CIRES program, launched in 2014, aims to employ around 2,500 expatriating professionals in UK and international sectors.

“To keep our international community in the capital, we are introducing new recruitment opportunities for expats,” CIREX’s executive director, Andrew McDonough, said.

“Over the next two years, we expect to recruit around 2.4 million expats worldwide and it will be a real win-lose situation for all.”
