To meet the needs of our clients, and drive further growth and development of our company, we are looking for a Recruitment Partner Consultant.

As our new colleague, you will have the opportunity to work both IN & ON the company.

Working IN the company entails ensuring our candidates have an exceptional experience throughout the recruitment and contracting processes.

For candidates relocating from abroad, you will provide support in their transition to a new life in the Netherlands. Additionally, you will build strong relationships with existing and new clients.

Working ON the company is all about improving internal operations and ‘the way we do things’. Think of projects such as writing blog posts, organizing company parties, optimizing internal processes, or arranging team-building activities.

  • Performing end-to-end recruitment for highly skilled technical profiles within the yacht building, shipbuilding, offshore, and renewable markets: sourcing and advising candidates throughout the process
  • Account management: analyzing and understanding client organizations and vacancy requirements by fostering relationships with Hiring Managers and internal Recruiters & HR personnel
  • Building and expanding your professional network in the market through platforms like LinkedIn, as well as by attending Job & Technology fairs & events
  • Staying updated on market trends, economic news & industry developments
  • Identify new business opportunities by exploring the market and targeted vacancies
  • Actively contributing to the company's online presence on our LinkedIn page and website, including writing and posting job vacancies, news, and updates
  • Maintaining a clean, organized, and up-to-date CRM system and internal filing system

  • Contributing to other internal projects based on your interests, strengths, and talents, as well as the needs of the team

Where you will work


Welcome to Van Storm, the leading recruitment and contracting agency specializing in the Dutch maritime industry. With a clear focus on the yacht and shipbuilding, offshore, and maritime sectors, we are here to assist both our clients in fulfilling their recruitment needs and our candidates in finding their dream jobs, often also helping them start a new chapter in the Netherlands.

Our growing client portfolio consists of renowned design & engineering offices, shipyards, and fleet operators across the Netherlands.

At Van Storm, we take pride in being a Teal Organization. But what does that mean? It describes a workplace where hierarchy, bosses, and secrecy are left behind. Instead, we foster an environment of trust, cooperation, self-management, and complete transparency. And when we say complete, we mean it. Everyone has access to all documents, salaries, and financial statements. We also share a detailed financial progress report each month, ensuring transparency about every Euro.

We treat one another as responsible and conscientious adults, eliminating the need for constant supervision and control. Instead, we collaborate, brainstorm and support each other. Our actions are guided by listening to Van Storm's purpose, values, and intrinsic motivation to provide our candidates and clients with the best service possible.

What you already have

  • You know recruitment is what floats your boat (pun intended!). Whether you have 3, 5, or 10 years of experience, what matters is your passion for recruitment, with all its lights & shadows.
  • Others describe you as helpful, empathetic, radiating positive energy, and proactive. In short, you are a team player, and have a great sense of people!
  • We are not looking for a “sales shark” but being result-oriented is crucial in this role. By results, we mean “getting things done”: from executing successful recruitment processes to completing internal projects tailored to your unique talents and skills.
  • While it would be great if you were familiar with concepts such as Naval Architecture or FPSO, don’t worry if you’re not! We will teach you all the engineering ins & outs to confidently engage with our candidates and clients. 
  • Excellent communication skills & fluent English are essential. As you'll be constantly collaborating with individuals from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, clear and effective communication is a must.
  • You currently reside in the Netherlands. Fully remote work is not available!

Your benefits

  • Dive into challenging and complex positions within the technological maritime cluster.
  • Unlimited holidays: it's not about disappearing to Bali for three months! By believing in trust, hard work when needed, and a healthy work-life balance, we simply do not count the free days we take. Our office is also closed every year between Christmas and New Year.
  • Salary based on expertise starting from 45K gross per year.
  • Become a co-owner: Get the chance to acquire the company certificates and share in the profits.
  • Embrace flexible working hours: no more stress from traffic jams or delayed trains!
  • Hybrid way of working: join us at the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays to foster knowledge sharing, spark innovation, and strengthen our team bonds.
  • Enjoy covered home-work commuting costs.
  • Educational Budget: Whether it's Dutch language courses, coaching, or time management, we support your personal growth and skills development.
  • Healthy lunch during office days: we handle the groceries, so you can feast on your preferred choices.
  • Cozy office in Amsterdam Noord: conveniently located with excellent public transport connections and easy access by car or bike.
