WHY WE DO IT

This is why...

Dutch tech scaleups are breaking records every year in raising funds and more than 60% of collected funds go to people. The labour market is looking pretty tight and finding the right talent locally is getting more challenging every day. You see a problem? We see a solution. We do this because we love to help and support people. Keeping it easy, simple yet disruptive. #PeopleFirst 

When our two fierce leaders, Sacha and Judith started Your Talent Agency, it became our leading subject in how we work and what we do. We want to build an inclusive culture for everybody. We prove that we do – leading by example for tech scaleups. With us, you start now. Our magic potion: hire for personality, train on skills.

HOW WE STARTED

Our CFO, Judith, comes from an international retail background and our CEO, Sacha, from a recruitment one. When they finally came together over a cup of coffee, the future of tech talent market in the Netherlands was pretty clear to them.

The shortage of talent in the market is a problem. So we saw the solution in hiring internationals but there was more to that. Ever thought of after-care of relocated candidates? (Retention, hello!) The lack of onboarding support led to a lot of questions and uncertainty among new hires. Clearly, there’s a lot of room for improvement.

HOW WE DO IT

Since 2017, Your Talent Agency is the first (and still the only) agency specialized in matching #epic international talent to tech scaleups in hypergrowth phase within the Netherlands. We have fulltime in-house teams dedicated to sourcing, recruitment and relocation of tech talent. 

We’ve sourced, recruited and relocated over 1,000 professionals for more than 50 companies like Just Eat Takeaway, Mobiquity, Bol.com and we just keep on rocketing. In no time, we became Your Talent Agency and the rest is history…
