Case study:

Emerald were engaged on a retained basis to originally assist on talent acquisition. Explore how our relationship developed.

Userlane is a German-based Software vendor in the digital adoption space. They were looking to hire a VP Product outside of their headquarter territory - either in the UK or in the USA where they didn’t have a legal entity.


Not only Emerald managed to place a suitable candidate in the UK, but they also made sure that the candidate was onboarded and payrolled in a legal and compliant manner, through Emerald’s EoR services. Offering an end-to-end solution, Emerald helped Userlane solve two issues at once: finding the relevant candidate as well as onboarding him remotely so that Userlane didn’t have to open a new office/entity outside of their headquarters location.


Since hiring & onboarding the initial candidate, Userlane trusted Emerald with finding talent as well as onboarding and payrolling 7 other candidates in the UK where Userlane doesn’t have a physical presence.


Userlane’s exponential growth in the UK and beyond has resulted in them setting up their own legal entity, with Emerald seamlessly transferring management of their employees.


Userlane Testimonial:

“We recently partnered with Emerald Technology to hire our first staff in the UK. Their simple, comprehensive Employer of Record solution was invaluable in helping us to get employees on-boarded quickly and efficiently. Communication was excellent, with a single point of contact dealing with all queries throughout. Though we have now set up our own legal entity and are employing our team directly, we continue to utilise Emerald’s talent acquisition services and would not hesitate to recommend them to other companies looking to expand their international operations.”
