Executive Recruitment

Often as a result of our involvement in preparing companies for their next steps and make them future proof there is a need for new motivated and experienced personnel. If required we can utilize international recruitment & selection. We focus however on (often international) professionals and managers with at least a Bachelors or Masters degree. We often recruit candidates at the start of their careers until the “last stop before the top”, for temporary as well as permanent positions. SPIJKERS offers a comprehensive range of services to help you recruit, select and employ the right candidate(s).


In the near future it will become more and more difficult to find suitable candidates with a Bachelors or Masters degree with the right background, experience and spirit. We will help our national and international clients find the right candidates and to pre-select them. Besides that we have our own database of potential candidates, we also have access to extensive networks, enabling us to find the perfect match for clients and candidates alike.


The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and the World Federation of People Management Associations (WFPMA), showed in their research From Capability to Profitability: Realizing the Value of People Management (2012), that companies adept at recruiting enjoyed 3.5 times the revenue growth and 2.1 times the profit margin of their less capable peers.
