To further grow its business, a Dutch entity is looking to hire international talent. Well established in the market. However, it is not recognised as an official sponsor by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND). For this reason, the entity is not able to sponsor work visas and hire international employees itself. The company has applied for the sponsor status but the application takes some time to be processed.
In the meantime, to ensure the company can fill the roles it needs, it seeks the help of an employer of record such as Employor. As a recognised sponsor, Employor can assist until the company gains its own sponsorship status, which usually takes about two months. During this period, Employor will take on talent on behalf of the client and will function as its official employer. Once the company is able to, it can take over this role, adding its own name to employment contracts.
With an employer of record, the company can take the time it needs to focus on gaining its own sponsorship title without having to slow down growth plans or day-to-day operations.
