The proposal for temporary work-permit under regulation EDWARDS, Steven Roy, born on 1 March 1964, of American nationality, for work as baker.
Thank you for your speedy reaction, and I'm glad that you have been willing to spend a bit of thought on this difficult question. My business is very much in need of someone qualified for the position who can begin work soon. I understand that this work-permit is only valid for a half-year; still, I am at this moment very much "helped out of the fire."
I will continue trying to find a "priority-enjoying" job-seeker, and also my recruitment efforts to expand, and beside my own channels (such as bakkery trade publications) to seek further in the venues that you have recommended. The advertisements that I place will be broader than they have been up until now, and at the same time will appear in more places than they have so far. I am in accord with the conditions that you have placed before me, and wish to comply with requirements that issue from them.
I understand that the employer must duly attempt to fill the relevant position with job-seekers via schooling-or-training channels (internal and external.) Here I would like to make a couple of marginal comments. External training programs are non-existent in Europe, so this is not an option. An internal training program would in my circumstance mean that I would have to hire an unqualified person, of whose capacities I know nothing from the outset. Capacities such as: Ability to work long days, regular hours; ability to adjust independently to the work process on demand; [ability to factor] the weather the acidity of the sourdough, and the quality of the flour [in production of sourdough bread.] Furthermore, this person must have good people-skills and teaching capabilities. It is clear that I understand that I can offer a (partially) qualified candidate from the European Economic Region a training course, and will try to find this candidate from the earlier-named sources and channels.
Please inform me how I can best address the matter of this request for a temporary work-permit.
