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 geographical borders 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 France or another EU country. For these clients we provide ‘Employer of Record’ (EOR)-services, making sure that their employees can care free 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 4 years our business has 10-folded in every aspect. In 2019 we aim – due to customer demand – to start our business in 3 new countries, one of them being France.

To help kickstart and grow our operations in France, we are now searching for an experienced International Human Resource & Payroll Consultant, to be based in the Paris region.

About the job.

Ultimately, you will be responsible for managing all our French 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 France. Acting as our client’s HR-department in France, you will make sure the employees feel equally at home with us, as they would be with any local employer.

Also, you 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 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 French business partners in the domain of payroll, accounting and legal.

About you.

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 France’s employment law, and have multiple years of experience as HR specialist, ideally in the domain of flexible, contracted or indirect employment (Portage, Interim, Professional Employment Outsourcing, Temp work) or in contractor/consulting services.

Our ideal candidate is an expert in the field of France’s laws 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 are able to 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 French 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.

Our 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 frequent exchanges with / travel to the other offices
  • The option to become the leader of the team in France that we hope you can help us grow.
  • All the means and facilities you need to properly do your job (office space, mobile phone, laptop).
