Did you know that Russia and the CIS countries are famous for producing highly skilled and talented software developers?

With an increasing need for IT experts to set up and maintain digitalization solutions in the post-Covid environment, our outstaffing services can help you to tap a large talent pool without the risk of setting up a company in Russia amid uncertain political circumstances. If you have already identified a suitable candidate, we'll arrange every aspect of the hiring process. If you are still looking for the right person, we will find, examine and pre-select professionally qualified and experienced applicants. Our recruitment team specializes in finding the right person, with a particular focus on IT candidates.

What you get

Legally compliant employment of candidates
Candidates cannot have a direct employment contract with your company, so we will employ your new hire in compliance with local legislation.
Fully-managed tax compliance
Anyone living in and receiving a salary in Russia must also pay tax in Russia, and social security contributions can only be paid through a legal entity. SCHNEIDER GROUP is responsible for handling your new employee’s tax and social security obligations.
No need for staff relocation
Relocating a candidate is an option for companies that wish to hire a Russian staff member, but not all candidates are willing to move, and relocation is resource-consuming and risky. Working with SCHNEIDER GROUP makes it possible to employ staff in Russia without relocation costs.
Fully outsourced employment
Once you have approved the hire, SCHNEIDER GROUP will legally employ your candidate in compliance with Russian payroll and accounting standards, arrange all the necessary paperwork and handle every aspect of their employment, from salary to statutory reporting.
Transfer of liability
We are fully liable for any issues that arise for either the employee or you, the client. If you terminate the arrangement, we will handle the dismissal and ensure that the employee is compensated in compliance with local law.
Wraparound services
We can arrange the purchase of necessary IT equipment or offer the use of office infrastructure (subject to the needs of our HQ) to provide a workspace, conference rooms for client meetings and any technical and administrative support needed to get up and running.
