Our History

Our journey began with two enthusiastic students, an old bicycle, 500 Dutch Guilders and a dash of entrepreneurial spirit. They had the appetite and drive to excel in their careers. Now we have energetic teams in 39 countries and we are always on the hunt for more ambitious recruitment consultants to join us and keep the momentum alive.

Randstad founder Frits Goldschmeding is now in his eighties and still loves work! In fact, he calls it his hobby he enjoys it so much. Who’d have thought that reading one book on philosophy and a bike ride with a friend would change his life…not to mention the world of work?

We have big plans for the future and we need like-minded people to help us make more history. View our history in more detail

Boutique and unique

Why are we different to every other recruiter? Size isn’t everything; we’ve cleverly combined those big brand luxuries with specialist boutique branches.

Each office is bursting with expert recruitment consultants, local knowledge and industry insight. As well as keeping our fingers on the market pulse, it makes for a fun place to work.

There’s a great atmosphere and everyone knows (and helps) each other.

No ego trips

Bragging rights are reserved for big wins only. We take pride in what we do and we know more about respect than Aretha Franklin. Trust us, our core values are part of our character – it’s not a load of old boardroom waffle. Click here to find out what we’re all about

Zero to recruitment hero

Whether you’re a new kid on the recruitment block or you already know your job boards from your DBS checks, we’ll give you a bump up the career ladder with our nifty approach to learning and development.

Other recruiters are left for dust when it comes to our bag of career tricks including:
induction, e-learning, desk coaching, masterclasses and ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management)
accredited leadership courses.

Don’t take our word for it, see for yourself.
