Our Recruitment Division is the flagship of Legend International. With 37 years of experience, we offer support for both Blue & White Collar staff and we approach each business relationship with transparency and flexibility. Our ability to manage bulk & project recruitment including headhunting for key positions and logistical support structure (pre-mobilization, mobilization, outsourcing and payroll requirements) makes us unique and has contributed to our continuous growth year after year. In order for us to excel in today’s very competitive recruitment market, we have established our reputation of professionalism and ‘working in partnership’ when dealing with both candidates and clients alike.
Legend International staffs a nucleus of specialized consultants who are experts in their active fields. In-depth market knowledge of recruitment, outplacement and human resources enables us to offer a prompt and dedicated service. Our success has been achieved by understanding our clients’ needs and practices in order to resource the right candidate for the role.
We cater to all hierarchies of White & Blue Collar staff, especially in our key focus industries – from Engineers and Technicians and from Skilled to Un-Skilled workers, we recruit them all.
It is our ability to recruit such a diverse yet large staff that enables us to also undertake bulk recruitment assignments for turnkey, short term and shutdown projects. No matter the location or project / requirement type, our team can fill a single temporary position, staff and manage a complete project team with internationally experienced professionals, or offer the experienced craft labor necessary to ensure successful and productive project execution. With a panel of consultants in each of our key focus industries, we are also able to conduct final interviews on behalf of our clients and recruit candidates on our guarantee with free replacement within the 3-months probation period.
We maintain relationships with associate companies in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Philippines and other neighboring countries to meet all client workforce requirements. With a long established presence in Asia, we have built longstanding relationships with these companies. Our management, with its extensive international background, understands the many problems encountered by international companies when utilizing Third World Country National workforces. Our experience in dealing with these matters on projects worldwide has enabled us to build a solid professional reputation for successfully assisting clients in avoiding and solving these problems to ensure successful and smooth execution and completion of their projects.
Unlike other workforce recruiters, we provide extensive pre-screening of candidates prior to candidate interviews being performed by the client which allows us to reduce the amount of time required to successfully source good candidates and get them on site. In addition to recruitment, pre-screening and testing, our Documentation & Mobilization Division can assist the candidates and clients through all steps required to legally process and mobilize the workforce in the most efficient manner possible.
We advertise the required categories in leading English and Regional newspapers on an all Pakistan basis i.e. Jang, Express, Dawn, Aaj, Mashreq and the regional publications of the respective cities.
We upload our client’s requirements on job sites such as Naukri.com, Timesjobs.com, Monster.com & Asiapower’s job portal and we also headhunt for certain specialized categories at potential areas in Asia.
