Growing French Business Presence in the US Underscores Need for Multilingual Recruiting
South Florida-based recruitment firm, ACA Talent, launches national recruitment services for companies seeking French-speaking talent to capitalize on the flourishing French business presence across North America.
Fort Lauderdale, FL, February 26, 2013 – ACA Talent, a national recruitment firm, is pleased to announce the expansion of its services to include French-language recruiting across North America. With the burgeoning market of French firms expanding their business footprint in the US, the need for bilingual candidates is growing. ACA Talent’s solution combines its expertise in professional search and high volume staffing, along with a native, French-speaking bilingual recruiting team that can closely monitor French-speaking candidates to ensure their fluency and total understanding of the job requirements and expectations.
According to the French embassy, the United States boasts the third-largest population of French expatriates in the world (after Switzerland and Germany), with over 122,000 French citizens registered with the embassy. Vibrant French-speaking populations are thriving across the USA’s major cities, including New York, San Francisco, and Miami. In Canada, there are over 9.5 million French speakers, representing approximately 22% of the Canadian population. Some of the largest French-speaking communities include Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto.
The presence of French companies in the United States is also growing, with over 2,600 organizations doing business in the US. These include global brands, such as Lacoste, Dannon, BIC, Louis Vuitton, and many more. In 2012, Miami Today reported that Florida alone boasts more than 200 companies, accounting for approximately 20,000 jobs. These companies span many industries, such as banking, restaurants, and retail.
“We’ve developed this expertise to better serve our clients,” said David Sargeant, President and CEO of ACA Talent. “With a growing need across the US and Canada for multilingual talent, the time was right to capitalize on our people and process. While companies need French-speaking candidates to communicate with a global audience, they still need a solid recruitment process like ours to fill those jobs.”

The company’s diverse service offerings also include professional recruiting services for sales, marketing, Human Resources, engineering, and logistics.
