🚀 Background & Career Journey
Robin’s journey into recruitment began almost by chance. Fresh from his studies, he delved into a consultancy role which introduced him to the world of sales. However, his flair didn’t go unnoticed. A recruitment agency spotted his potential and he started with a prominent agency. After 5 impactful years in agency recruitment, Robin’s entrepreneurial spirit beckoned. He embraced an opportunity to establish an agency division. It was during the unsettling Corona period that Robin and his team did some market introspection. Their research pinpointed an untapped potential: English-speaking candidates from South Africa – a region matching the Netherlands’ time zone, boasting quality developers, and serving as Africa’s tech hub. Making a bold move, Robin relocated to South Africa, trained recruiters, and began catering to the US and UK markets. Now, having returned to the Netherlands, he wears two hats: working as an interim recruiter and handling his W&S assignments, always keeping tech at the heart of his pursuits.
