My motivation to start working for Randstad was that I was looking for a job in a dynamic working environment, with a large multinational company. I had heard very good stories about Randstad as an employer and that they invested a lot in the training and development of new employees.

Our specific approach with Randstad Multilingual Recruitment is a personal approach. We work with a team of 5 people, who are responsible for establishing and maintaining all relations ourselves. Our process is quite straightforward: candidates that apply or that we headhunt ourselves, get a telephone interview. In this interview, a candidate’s CV will be discussed and his demands and requirements/motivation for a new job. Tests (languages or technical) will be conducted if applicable. After that, an appointment will be made for a personal interview. In this personal interview, we focus on the type of personality and work ethics that a candidate has. In this way. We are able to draw up a complete profile for all our candidates.

Randstad Multilingual Recruitment has national coverage and we focus on positions that are customer contact related. This means that we offer customer support positions, but also technical support, telemarketing, sales, inside sales and customer care roles as well. We offer both permanent and temporary roles to our candidates.

My motivation to work with Randstad Multilingual Recruitment is that I enjoy helping people and that it makes me happy to see our clients and candidates happy. Having a good job is usually quite important to people and I am glad that I am able to play a part in that. I really enjoy working for Randstad, as the company gives me a lot of opportunity to work independently and to create my own strategy. The colleagues with Randstad are fantastic and I am quite happy to work in such an ambitious and hardworking environment!

Our Career programs assist you to Get hired

For an expat moving to the Netherlands, getting the right direction is very important. It's important that one knows which steps and direction to take. Linda is an exceptionally talent counselor, her advice has helped me land a job within a week of coming to the Netherlands. I am grateful for her mentoring and look forward to a great working relationship in the future.

Dr. Hrishiraj S | Clinical Research & Affairs Manager

Together Abroad provided expert advice on personal branding including developing a top-notch, market-aware CV, highly tailored job applications, and approach strategies with potential employers in the Netherlands. Furthermore, I found them be highly knowledgeable in key related fields such as recruitment strategy, immigration law, contracts, labor agreements, and (un)employment benefits. I would recommend Together Abroad to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

A. Aboufirass | Structural Engeer

Linda is a big mind. She thinks about things that the rest normally overlook. The insight she has about the dutch job market can only be achieved through years of experience and persistence.

Her business savvy is complemented by her mastery of understanding the client's needs and requirements. For my career I could say, she was the “Mary Poppins”, who guided me through thick and thin and helped me to land a career in the Netherlands

S. Bhattacharjee | FP&A Manager

If you are going to enlist the services of a "Career Coach" look no further. The only person you want in your corner is Linda van Orsouw. As an expat, you absolutely want to work with a highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who knows their way around the Dutch career/employment/job market. Linda assisted me in writing and positioning my CV, helped me organize and prioritize my list of opportunities, coached me through mock interviews and was there when I got offered a senior position only 2 months later. When asked I will only refer to Linda and "Togetherabroad".
