(Indeed, international customers and partners represent the major part of our activities). Based on an evaluation, we have determined that the duties of the IT Hardware and Support Specialist position requires knowledge of English in addition to French (oral and written). We also determined that the English language skills already required of other employees do not permit the performance of English language skills tasks related to the IT Hardware and Support Specialist position. However, Randstad limits as much as possible the number of positions for which the knowledge of another language is required to ensure the effective accomplishment of its mission.
