About us

We take care of your European expansion!

At Parakar, we believe that global expansion is not just about crossing geographical borders but also about understanding different cultures, laws, and regulations.

That’s why we focus on providing compliant solutions to engage in working relationships that help bridge statutory and employment-legal contexts. By taking care of all the local regulations and compliance, we enable you to focus on what you do best: growing their business. With our local expertise we are able to serve you best.

Whether you’re a large multinational corporation looking to expand abroad, a small business looking for the right talent, or a contractor, we’ll sort it out. With Parakar as your partner, it was never easier to hire employees across borders and expand your business in the European market.

How it started

It all started 20 years ago when our founder, Johan Opperman, started a business to arrange employment between Indian experts and Dutch companies. It has since rapidly expanded into its present form where we help businesses all over the world expand their companies.

As a Professional Employer Organisation we paved the way for organisations and employees to find each other across borders. We provided unique knowledge that created the foundation for remote work that exploded during the last few years. Which gave us the opportunity to work closely with numerous clients from different backgrounds.

We now offer our services across 10 European countries, and we look forward to continuing to help businesses grow and thrive in a world full of opportunities.

In todays global economy, there is a huge need for organizations to avail themselves of talent around the globe, regardless of geographic or legal boundaries.

At Parakar, we aim to be the preferred in-country facilitator, allowing those organisations and their talent to reliably, compliantly and efficiently be associated with each other, making those boundaries virtually disappear.
