Danish company recruiting success with EURES

The automation company is based in Odense, Denmark, an area which has approximately 3,000 positions available in the robotics industry, yet sees only 50 robot engineers graduating from the local university.

With such a wide skills gap, in order to meet its recruitment needs, the company must look further afield to find the best engineers. To support in this process, Blue Ocean Robotics has enlisted the help of the EURES Advisers at Workindenmark.

EURES Advisers first connected with the company in 2014, when they were reaching out to employers within the region to inform them of the wide range of services available via EURES.

Since that time, Blue Ocean Robotics has enjoyed a close collaborative partnership, and has received assistance in sourcing suitable staff from across the EU. They now enjoy a multinational workforce, with 16 different nationalities represented.

Speaking of their work with EURES, Rikke Voldsgaard Risager, Vice President of Human Resources & Internal Services at Blue Ocean Robotics, says “they are very professional and skilled people, with a fantastic understanding of how to give super service to companies”.

“In Denmark they kind of come as a package, so to speak,” she adds. “They help out with the recruitment, the on-boarding and the settlement of the new employee. I would highly recommend them to other employers.”

According to EURES Adviser Sven Michael, “the key to a good relationship with employers such as Blue Ocean Robotics is, without a doubt, to keep an open and honest dialogue with the employers about their recruitment challenges and employment needs.”

 “[The key is] Also conducting straightforward communication about the information and the services we/EURES offers – so both parties have a clear and mutual understanding and expectation for the cooperation,” he added.

If you would like to know more about the services provided to employers, and how EURES can help you find the right people with the right skills, contact your local EURES Adviser today.
