Williams Martini Racing Team

Randstad partnered with Williams Martini Racing - one of the world’s leading Formula 1 teams - in 2006.

Unlike other Formula 1 racing teams, Williams Martini Racing is wholly independent; and because they conduct almost all of their work in-house, having the right people on board is paramount.

Randstad drives a high performance culture. We recognise that every member of our team impacts our overall performance, and we measure our own success on our ability to recruit the best people in the market.

Clipper Stad Amsterdam

In the nineteenth century, clippers plied the great trade routes of the world, carrying cargoes of tea, spices from China and gold from California and Australia. Their tall masts could support more sails than conventional ships of their time, which allowed them to achieve speeds that had never been seen on the sea before.

Today, the Clipper Stad Amsterdam - inspired by those 19th century vessels and built in conjunction with both ‘the city of Amsterdam’ and Randstad’s founder, Frits Goldschmeding - is one of only two seaworthy clippers in the world.

Like its 19th century predecessors, she’s capable of achieving very high speeds and in 2000, she won the Cutty Sark Tall Ships Race. With her tall masts, beautiful teak and mahogany woodwork, and 31 billowing white sails, a day on board is an unmissable experience.

An essential part of the Clipper project for Frits Goldschmeding and for Randstad as a business, was the opportunity it could offer in helping prepare people for successful careers.

During construction, the Clipper provided work experience and training for 138 unemployed people, equipping them with the skills and confidence needed to succeed in the workplace.

And today, the Clipper provides trainees in the sailing and hospitality industries with work experience and the chance to learn new skills.

VSO

Randstad partnered with VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) in 2004 as part of our continued commitment to support sustainability and fight poverty around the world.

Whilst we both operate in very different contexts, our shared objective is to match the right people with the right jobs. For VSO, this means matching the skills of volunteers with the needs of communities in the developing world.

We support VSO by:

  • Helping recruit volunteers around the world
  • Providing strategic and practical support
  • Providing financial support
  • Supporting our people to take up voluntary placements

Together, we will work towards building inclusive and sustainable societies across the globe.
