05.07.2015 - A leading St Petersburg university and local recruiters work together

On 3 July 2015, CONSORT Group’s partner Yury Mikhailov took part in the second meeting of the Council for International Recruitment of ITMO University (St Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics). Representatives of the leading search firms in St Petersburg and the University’s HR Department met to discuss the Council’s half-year’s operation results and to determine further ways of interaction to attract highly-qualified Russian and foreign specialists.

In his speech, Yury Mikhailov cited an example of successful co-operation between ITMO and the recruitment firms – Consort Petersburg’s recent search project to find Moderators for one of the Russia’s largest web portals. By closely interacting with ITMO’s HR Dept and making extensive use of its IT resources, Consort Petersburg managed to place a number of the University’s graduates. The search project will continue until the year’s end. 

The Council for International Recruitment of ITMO University also discussed the results of ITMO University Fellowship & Visiting Professorship Program which is a drive to attract new talented and high potential faculty staff from all over the world. The program started in 2014 and is aimed at finding research scientists specializing in such key areas for ITMO as optics and photonics, ITC and computer systems, nanotechnology and innovation materials.

The participating experts expressed their hope that co-operation between ITMO’s International Recruitment Council and St Petersburg’s search companies to attract worldwide professionals will soon become a reality.
