About Parakar.

The Parakar Group is an employment services organisation offering a wide spectrum of solutions in the domain of globally outsourced HR- and payroll management. We offer solutions to companies and individuals to compliantly engage in employment relationships that not only cross continents and cultures, but also help bridge statutory and employment-legal context. Our services range from outsourced employment management, including International HR- and payroll accounting, work permit process management to relocation services, among others.

Our clients, based on all continents, want to employ staff in Germany or another EU country. For these clients we provide ‘Employer of Record’ (EOR)-services, making sure that their employees can carefree and compliantly work for them, also in countries where they do not have their own establishment. For the employees, we make sure they are properly taken care of in their country of work, even though their formal employer is based abroad, often on another continent.

We have 20 years of experience in this domain, and in the past four years our business has more than ten-folded in every aspect. We presently cover Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain, with entities and offices in the larges cities, and do not rule out near-future expansion to more countries.

About Parakar.

The Parakar Group offers a wide spectrum of service solutions, all on the employment-management side of international business. Our focus is on outsourced HR- and payroll management, where we host our foreign client’s local employees on our payrolls. These can be local or EU Nationals, or non-EU nationals for whom we also manage a lot of their Expat-requirements, workpermits, etcetera.

We operate for many years already in Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany, and are starting in France and Spain at the moment. Our clients are located around the globe- from Sydney to Hong-Kong and Los Angeles. For them we provide employment services, making sure that their employees can start on assignments in the designated countries care- free. Same applies to foreign employees starting at local Dutch companies.

Due to our strong growth over the past year, we are searching for team members for our Breda office. Preferred start date: As soon as possible. We offer a very flexible working environment, including the option to occasionally work from home.

About the job.

You analyse, advise and manage the different contextual views and expectations on labour law, employment terms and conditions, as well as benefit packages whilst connecting with our foreign clients and local employees. You pragmatically work to bring them together in the form of compliant, manageable and mutually satisfactory employment solutions.

A typical day might include:

  • Advising foreign clients on how we can translate their sometimes out-of-the-ordinary employment requirements into compliant local implementations, often in cooperation with our tax advisors or lawyers. Both in onboarding and offboarding contexts. 
  • Implementing the outcome of that in employment contracts and managing these employees’ administrative onboarding.
  • Planning projects with your teammates, often communicating via Skype, as we work closely with our team in Cologne (DE), Paris (FR), Barcelona (ES).
  • Learning all there is to know on Dutch employment relationships- after a year with us you will be a HR Pro, guaranteed (if you are not already one).
  • Supporting expats with their workpermit processing, opening of bank accounts, setting up health insurance and settling-down processes- you interact with all the stakeholders.

This is your job if: 

  • you are a self-driven, service-oriented, interactive and multi-tasking team-player.
  • you can thrive in a dynamic, rapidly growing and constantly changing environment.
  • you are willing to learn more about the often-complex HR-, payroll and immigration regulations or the tax system.
  • you are attentive to details regarding work, tasks and loose ends, and act pro- actively on things that could be improved, rather than complain.
  • given the global time zones our clients work in and the multinational and -cultural background of our clients or employees, your flexibility and empathy have no borders.
  • you are fluent in English (the company’s language) and Dutch, both spoken and written.

Senior/Medior

  • You have a number of years of relevant HR- or Payroll-professional experience, matching the Senior-/Medior position you desire.

  • You can immediately be one of our subject-matter experts on Dutch and payroll matters.

  • You are open minded to different approaches of work, and able to apply everything you know about HR and Payroll in a Dutch context, in a totally different context and process model.

Junior

  • You have at least a bachelor’s degree

  • The relevant experience is less of a requirement: but we do expect you to be willing and ambitious to learn rapidly, and to grow into a medior- or senior- role.

You might ideally also:

  • be able to communicate in a 3rd language.
  • have a background in more than only the Dutch HR- and payroll context or jurisdiction.
  • have some sort of international business background, by education or from experience and are willing to strongly increase that- job experience is not necessarily required!

Yes, give me the job!

Send us your CV in English and a short explanation on why you see yourself qualified and motivated for the position as well as your possible start date and salary expectation.

We have 20 years of experience in this domain, and in the past four years our business has 10-folded in every aspect. As of 2019 we are active in 5 countries, of which Germany has our largest footprint.

To help manage and grow our operations in Germany we are now searching for an experienced HR Operations Team lead, to be the senior ‘playing captain’ in our local team of Human Resource & Payroll Consultants, based in Cologne.

About the job.

You will be part of and responsible for the team managing all our German HR & payroll services for our mostly non-European client companies. You will advise and help them translate their foreign HR policies into employment agreements with their selected employees in Germany. Acting as our client’s HR-department in Germany, you will make sure the employees feel equally at home with us, as they would be with any local employer.

Also, you and your team will advise and actively support our clients and their expats in all relevant aspects of labour related immigration, work- and residence permits and relocation.

You will be a solid sparring partner for our management and colleagues around Europe, in the field of international HR management and employment outsourcing. You will work closely with colleagues from our headquarters in the Netherlands and subsidiaries in various other European countries, as well as with strategic business partners in all time zones around the globe. You will also be our interface to our German business partners in the domain of payroll, accounting and legal.

This is your job if: 

This is your job if you hold a relevant bachelor’s degree or have the equivalent experience and mind set. 

You are a practical expert in Germany’s employment law, and have multiple years of experience as HR specialist, ideally also in the domain of flexible, contracted or indirect employment or in contractor/consulting services, where HR is a commercial service, and not only a companies’ back-office staff function. You are familiar with all aspects of a typical employment lifecycle, from onboarding, across the monthly cycle including payroll, ad-hoc changes and issues, up to all possible scenarios of termination and offboarding. 

Most importantly, you will be the coordinating leader of a growing team of five colleagues that with you as playing captain, manages all our processes and client/employee interactions on a day-to-day basis. You will be the go-to person four your colleagues, our sales team and our global business partners, on the more complex and ad-hoc topics in German employment law and payroll. You handle escalations and interact with management on the company’s strategy. 

Our ideal candidate is an expert in the field of Germany’s AÜG law and regulations regarding flexible/indirect employment, payroll and work permits. You have a full understanding of the entire employment lifecycle in all its aspects and can implement and manage these. 

Alternatively, you would be suitable if you can look back on multiple years of work experience in one or more of these domains and have the ambition to become an expert in all of them the future. 

You are attentive to process and detail regarding your work, tasks given to you and tying up loose ends. Dealing with multiple HR tasks simultaneously does not impose a problem on you. Your mindset is open and flexible enough to familiarize yourself with processes that may be very different than you were used to. Moreover, you act pro- actively on things that could be improved. 

You have an excellent command of the German and English languages, both spoken and written (essential)

Given our global work environment and the multicultural backgrounds that you would be dealing with daily, it is important that your flexibility and empathy know no limits. 

What we have to offer:

  • An above-average salary
  • A very motivated and pleasant working atmosphere
  • An initial training in our existing operations in Netherlands and/or Germany
  • A lot of international contacts and exchanges with/travel to the other offices (Paris, Barcelona, Breda).
  • All the means and facilities you need to properly do your job (office space, mobile phone, laptop).

Yes, give me the job!
