BBi & International Recruitment - Supporting You Each Step Along the Way

Country of Origin Training programmes, or COOTs, are a unique concept for employers to train incoming foreign workers during the recruitment phase. COOTs ensure that the new professionals who are relocating have basic language skills and cultural understanding of the target country as well as basic understanding of the organisational and legal aspects surrounding healthcare and the working environment of the employing organisation.

Unlike anything else on the market, COOTs were developed in close collaboration with healthcare districts, rural health centres and university hospitals. BBi Communication has helped almost 400 social and healthcare professionals including nurses, general practitioners, specialists and dentists find new work in the Nordics.

We are committed to following the international rules of recruitment as well as to thoroughness in the process and how it affects both the applicants and their new working environments. Our partner organisations and companies around Europe have given us a reputation as trustworthy and ethical experts in international recruitment.
