Hiring for International Work
Employment is one of the most common international activities that we support, and each project is unique. You should consider your staffing needs early because the options available to you may require substantial lead time (10 weeks).
Although Harvard cannot directly employ individuals abroad, we can help you evaluate your hiring options based on the University’s employment policy and the criteria outlined below. If a business need for work abroad is approved, we’ll help you find a solution that works for your project, your budget, and the people you’re seeking to hire.
Note: On May 11, 2023, the University significantly updated its policy regarding employment outside of Massachusetts (domestic and international). Review the policy closely to understand how it will shape your international staffing needs. Contact your local Human Resources or Academic/Faculty Affairs office if you have questions about the policy.
