Languages & Culture

Bilingual recruitment is changing, becoming sharper and more sophisticated. Linguistic skills alone are no longer sufficient to satisfy an ever more demanding business environment.

At the forefront of the bilingual and multilingual recruitment industry, French Selection specialises in selecting candidates who demonstrate a combination of business acumen, professional experience, language skills and a strong international multi-cultural awareness.

French Selection will often identify and select professionals and executives with previous experience of having lived, studied and/or worked both within and outside of the UK. Many applicants will have spent part of their education and/or professional career in another country. Our candidates' background will generally illustrate a proven ability to integrate and develop a good understanding of the cultural differences.

In the context of a rapidly changing business environment within European and Worldwide markets, all companies face exciting challenges, prospects and opportunities. More than ever before, an effective recruitment strategy has become a key factor in the success of any company & organisation.

Brexit: Why a second-language will put you at a serious advantage
With the UK now outside of the European Union, we could see UK businesses employing a great deal more multilingual employees to help with negotiations and trade with EU countries, particularly to facilitate closer relationships with EU-based customers and suppliers.

As a result we could see the demand increase for French, German, Italian and Spanish jobs, amongst other languages jobs.

French is currently the most in-demand language in the UK (50%), followed by German (47%) and finally Spanish (30%).

Some examples of growing demand for French, German and Spanish jobs, amongst other languages jobs:
