IT-Recruitment Consultant Amsterdam | Contract Division | €2600 – €2800 PER MONTH

Job Description

Who are we?

Darwin Recruitment is an international technical recruitment company, which has been trading for over 20 years. Our consultants focus on strict technical markets in Digital and Data for specific geographic regions, making them true experts within their niche markets. Our head office is in the UK, with local offices across Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Scandinavia and the USA.

This is an exciting time to join the business, with ambitious growth plans for the coming 3 years, and branching out into offering new services including labour leasing and consultancy.


Do you:

  • Enjoy the hustle and bustle of a well-managed sales environment, the pressure of making fast-paced decisions and doing serious business (= making money)?
  • Know how to be independent, running your personal desk and being accountable for your own choices?
  • Care about your team members, looking to see them succeed and cheering on their success, as much as your own?
  • Like to learn from experienced, hands-on managers who don’t hide behind a glass cubicle?
  • Want to feel appreciated as an individual, rather than treated as a cog-in-the-machine, being part of a team that celebrates your unique skills and contributions?
  • Want autonomy over your Personal Development Plan (PDP), choosing training modules that interest you and are reviewed on a weekly basis by management.
  • Wish to join a business that doesn’t believe in stiff collars and fancy shirts, but casual dress, flexible working hours and building real and lasting relationships?
  • Understand that the industry of recruitment means facing rejection and disappointment and the importance of maintaining a pipeline – starting over and over again every month in order to be successful?
  • Understand the nuance of working with people on both sides of the sales process? (products don’t argue about their price tag and working hours quite like humans do)


If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’, you live within commutable distance from Amsterdam and have a solid understanding of Dutch working culture, don’t hesitate to send your CV.


What’s the process?

We are looking for 5 new Delivery/Recruitment Consultants to join the fast-paced Contracts division.


On joining Darwin, there is the option of either becoming a ‘Vertical Market Skills Delivery Consultant’ or as ‘Account Delivery Consultant’ with the Enterprise account teams (focused on one customer). Once you have a thorough understanding of your technical market and the market you’re recruiting for (as well as VISA and relocation requirements) you can start to build a network of talent, learn the business processes, understand how to perform market research and complete systems training before taking on a 360 role, if that is what you desire (There is also the opportunity for experienced sourcing candidates to dedicate themselves to finding the best technical talent, in close partnership with the senior consultants).

After a time, ranging from 4 weeks to 6 months, you’re able to transition to ‘end to end’ recruitment placements much quicker and with greater confidence, leading to a longer and more successful career at Darwin.
