Recruit a Student: The story so far

For those who are interested: a bit of history and a glance into the future.

A bit about our history, the present day and the future

Recruit a Student has its origin in a staffing solution for the company of one of the founders. Back in 1994, Jaap Dietz was the CEO of an awning manufacturing business; a line of work where the need for workers differs every day. The other founder of Recruit a Student, Remco Beijer, was one of the students who worked there at that time. At a certain point, recruiting fellow students took roughly the same amount of time as his studies Human Resources. To keep the group intact, the students were lent to other companies in between the awning projects. That was the basis for the birth of Recruit a Student in 1999.

Nowadays Recruit a Student has developed into a versatile company where detachment, recruitment and payrolling are the core business. With offices in Amsterdam, Breda, Eindhoven, Rotterdam, Tilburg, Utrecht, Zwolle and The Hague we guarantee national coverage. Our database is filled with university students and contains the most comprehensive selection of talented students. Hard workers with high potential who are an asset to any company. Quality is our main value. Therefore, we are member of the NBBU since day one and worked hard to become a NEN- certified recruitment agency.

And we keep on moving forward. Five offices are being ran by franchisees who profit from our one of a kind franchise formula. Our focus also spreads increasingly to other European countries. Our offices in Antwerp and London are the first strongholds in our effort to conquer Europe.
