Recruit Bilingual Candidates Email Template

Use this cold email template to save time and craft the right message to attract bilingual candidates for an open position.

Companies hire bilingual employees to:

  • Foster diversity in the workplace
  • Communicate with clients and partners who prefer a different language
  • Produce written material (e.g. manuals or web content) for global use

For European candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.

An effective recruiting email to bilingual candidates should:

  • Explain how you found them and why you contacted them
  • Briefly describe the open role
  • Include benefits that come with the position (e.g. training, college tuition assistance, travel reimbursement)

Also provide relevant information (e.g. your name, company and contact information) and a clear call to action. And if this is an EU candidate, make sure to include a link to your privacy notice as the GDPR requires.
