Does Personnel Search recruit regionally, nationally or globally?
+ -

Personnel Search can recruit regionally as well as nationally and globally. We are experts in recruiting expats and offer support around the relocation process, if desired. Do you only want to hire Dutch-speaking IT professionals? Then we naturally look for Dutch-speaking candidates with the right knowledge and experience in the Netherlands.

Does Personnel Search also mediate other functions outside of IT?
+ -

No. Personnel Search has been recruiting IT staff for organizations for more than 20 years. We have a lot of experience with this and therefore also have a large network and database with more than 100,000 CVs. As a result, we focus purely on the recruitment of IT professionals.

Does Personnel Search only mediate hbo and wo-educated IT professionals, or also IT professionals with an MBO background?
+ -

Personnel Search specializes in recruiting hbo and wo-trained IT staff. We have a large network in this. Only in exceptional situations do we take on vacancies for MBO-trained IT professionals.

Why would candidates talk to Personnel Search about a vacancy?
+ -

Recruiters unfortunately have a bad reputation in the market. Candidates who are called by multiple organizations about the same vacancy, send unsolicited CVs, such things are still common at unprofessional 'cowboy' recruitment agencies.
Fortunately, Personnel Search has a good reputation among IT professionals, because of our personal approach and honest working method. Precisely because we only recruit exclusively for clients, we can approach candidates with concrete vacancies that are really interesting for them. It gives candidates confidence if we can mention the name of the client. Then they know that it is a real vacancy, and not a lure to steal data. We also have more than 250+ Google reviews from both candidates and clients to show that we mediate candidates in an honest and pleasant way.
