Under pressure, or even stressed out from not being able to grow your IT business? Tried advertising, recruiters, referrals and nothing seems to be working as you'd like?
We get it. We know that it is proving more and more challenging to find great employees who are a fit for your company. We get that what makes YOUR job harder is finding a trusted recruiter who has expertise in finding such employees and who will understand YOUR requirements and will deliver on time.
Here's the thing: We don't fill vacancies - we build businesses.
At Advance in IT, we are hugely proud of our brand and reputation of excellence. We think outside the box and work with companies as an internal recruiter, rather than just another recruitment agency. We are not a fan of KPIs yet we get results when we focus on people.
We offer a bespoke service per client by which we tailor our delivery to your needs. We'll sit around a table and use our expertise and intuition to guide you not only to hire the best people, but also to strategise well.
Who is our typical customer?
We choose to work with small and medium sized IT businesses in Holland focusing on a form of cloud technology, who work in an agile way, are innovative or ground-breaking and who we would be happy to work for. Culture is vital when we choose our customers. If we don't 'get' your culture, we cannot recruit for you. We are passionate about everything that we do.
As we get to know your culture and business it is easier for us to also find the non-IT personnel such as HR, Admin or Finance.
Who do we help, and how do we fix your staffing problems?
With 13 years' experience recruiting in the IT industry in the Netherlands, we know what we are doing. Recruitment is 100% of what we do. As a Hiring Manager, MD, Operations Manager or similar, we estimate it could be just 5-10% of yours. You cannot do this alone.
Our typical clients are:
Google cloud consultancy, AWS Consultancy, Data science Consultancy, Mendix Consultancy, amomg others.
We place, on average, 12 IT Consultants per year, mostly in IT roles, but we also place support roles in IT companies whem our clients request our expertise in doing this.
Using the very latest recruitment software and tooling which we have chosen to invest in, we find the relevant talent through various methods. We use our communication and interpersonal skills, market and geography knowledge to get them to you. We manage the entire process for you from qualification to start date, and beyond. Post-process is vital for us to ensure you are entirely satisfied with the service you have received.
