Who can help me attract talent?

There are several parties in Brainport Eindhoven, both in the non-profit and commercial sector, which can help you attract talent. Please contact Brainport Development if you have any questions or need advice (free of charge).

 

Solving labor shortages

The labor market is experiencing a significant lack of skilled workers. It is therefore very important to Brainport Eindhoven to attract and recruit tech and IT talents. Many (SME) companies have to deal with the lack of talents at a daily basis. However, they do not know how to fill their vacancies. Or whom to turn to for help in attracting the right talent. That is why Brainport Development has set up several programs, initiatives and recommendations on how companies can recruit international talents themselves or use the help of an intermediary. In addition, public authorities and trainers are offering jobseekers and beneficiaries retraining, refresher training and additional training programs. This will also bring forth motivated talents. 
 

Non profit service providers
Within Brainport Eindhoven, several non-profit service providers and schools are actively trying to link jobseekers to companies in the region. 

Education
Are you looking for an intern, graduate or starter. Please ask the intermediate vocational, higher vocational and scientific schools. Many of these schools have career centers or are interested in collaborating with companies.   

Government
The government is providing several services for companies to help them hire employees and lateral entry candidates. You can turn to the following organizations for help:

  • UWV (Employee Insurance Agency Netherlands)
    Ergon
  • WVK Groep
  • WSD Groep
  • Senzer
  • Werkgelegenheidsteam (Employment team)
  • 04Werkt

Brainport Talent Attraction Program
Attracting international talents might be the answer, if you fail to find the right people for your job vacancies. When hiring international employees, you will create cultural diversity, which has proven to enhance the innovative strength of your company. One of the programs of Brainport Development to attract tech and IT talent for companies and organizations in Brainport Eindhoven is the Brainport Talent Attraction Program. The program focuses on attracting graduates from intermediate vocational schools, higher vocational schools and universities. 

    Commercial service providers
    In addition to non-profit organizations and service providers, there are a number of commercial services you might consider using to recruit talent:

    • Intermediairs
      There are various kinds of intermediaries that provide services regarding secondment, temporary employment and recruitment. Some of those intermediaries are specialized in e.g. technology or the recruitment of international talent.  
    • HR consultancy firms
      An increasing number of agencies is specialized in Human Resources and the changes in the field, also known as HR innovation. These agencies can certainly help attracting the right talent. They can show you how to improve your job description and teach you new ways of looking at someone’s resume.
    • Online recruitment channels 
      Of course, you can also post your job vacancies online. For example, on one of the many job sites like Indeed, Nationale Vacature Bank, Intermediair, Monsterboard, etc. Furthermore, you can also promote your job vacancy via LinkedIn and Facebook. And if you are looking for tech or IT talents, you can post your vacancy on Brainport Eindhoven’s job portal.
