We develop a close relationship with our candidates. We aim to fully understand your needs and create a positive experience during the entire recruitment process.

All of our consultants are multilingual internationals who speak native or near-native English plus 2 or 3 other languages fluently.
What does it mean to have a direct contract with your employer? Adams Multilingual Recruitment can help you find your next job. Our recruitment consultants act as intermediaries in the hiring process between you, the job seeker (our candidate) and international companies (our clients) who are looking for new employees in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. Our clients ask us to help them find candidates with language skills for their most recent vacancies. They send us job descriptions and relevant information (salary, company culture etc) and ask us to send them CVs and interview reports of candidates who would be a good fit for their organisation and have the skills and language ability that they are seeking. If you are interviewed by one of our clients and offered a job you can either work for that company as a 'direct hire' (with a direct contract) or through Adams as a 'temporary worker' (also referred to as a 'temporary employee' or a 'temp') with a temporary contract. It is important for you to know the difference between direct hire and temporary work. Direct hire - this means that you will enter into an employment agreement directly with our client. Once you sign the employment agreement with the client, they will be your legal employer and have responsibility for paying your salary, your taxes, social premiums etc. In this situation, Adams' role is to introduce you to your potential new employer and to facilitate the recruitment process between you and that company. When you are recruited in this way there are generally two types of contracts that your new employer can offer you: a fixed term contract or a permanent (or indefinite) contract. A fixed-term employment contract has a start date and an end date. This contract will end on the agreed date without a dismissal procedure. You can have a maximum of 3 successive fixed-term contracts with the same employer, which in total should not exceed a 24-month period. If the company wants to have you as an employee for longer than that, they will have to offer you a permanent employment contract. A permanent contract is an employment contract for an indefinite period. This kind of contract has no end date. As an employee, you will have the right to end the contract by respecting the legal or agreed notice period and requirements. These requirements should be stated in your employment contract. If your employer wants to end a permanent contract – they need to apply for a dismissal permit. Please note: there is never a charge to you, as a candidate from Adams Multilingual Recruitment. We do not charge job seekers for our introduction and recruitment services. You should not be charged for these services by any recruitment agency in The Netherlands. The recruitment agency has a contractual relationship with their clients and charges the company a fee for a successful introduction.
What does it mean to have a temporary contract with Adams? When you ask Adams Multilingual Recruitment to help you find a new job, our recruitment consultants act as intermediaries in the hiring process between you, the job seeker (our candidate) and international companies (our clients) seeking employees in the Netherlands and Europe. Our clients ask us to help them find candidates for the most recent vacancies that they have open. They send us job descriptions and relevant information (salary, company culture etc) and ask us to send them CVs and interview reports of multilingual candidates who would be a good fit for their organisation and have the skills that they are looking for. If we introduce you to one of our clients and, following the recruitment process, that client offers you a job, they will generally offer you either a position as a 'temporary worker' through Adams Multilingual Recruitment or, a direct contract with the company. It is important for you to know the difference between the direct hire and temporary work. Temporary worker - ie. you have a temporary contract with Adams Working as a temporary worker through a recruitment agency is very common in the Netherlands. It is often the first step to a long-term career with a company. Alternatively, it could be a short-term arrangement to work on a project or assignment that lasts a few weeks or months. The company will offer you a job performing work for them, usually on their premises, but the company will ask Adams to be your employer and pay your salary. If you work as a temporary employee with Adams it means that Adams Multilingual Recruitment is your legal employer. You will sign a contract of employment with us and we will be responsible for paying your salary, taxes, social premiums etc. However, you will be performing work for one of our clients. The client will determine where you will work, what hours you work and what tasks you will do even though Adams is your employer. You will need to complete a timesheet weekly or monthly stating how many hours you have worked for the company, have it signed by your manager, submit it to Adams and we will pay your salary and ensure that all the taxes and other deductions are made as according to Dutch laws and regulations. This is a good opportunity for people to gain experience in differing environments, to diversify their skill-set, whilst benefiting from the financial security of a work contract. Many of our candidates start their career in the Netherlands working as a temporary employee and after six months or one year go on to work on a 'direct hire' contract with the same company.

If you do not speak Dutch and you are looking for a job in the Netherlands, Adams is the first recruitment agency you want to call. The team in Adams is very professional, kind and open. In my experience, I had a very good intake session with one of their recruiters which was followed by a couple of interviews with the company that ended up hiring me. The recruiter who worked with me was always available, extremely professional, but adding to the business relation with me a human touch, which is always very much appreciated. I would like to thank Adams for having helped me find a job in a really short time and would like to recommend it to any foreigners who are willing to build up their career in the Netherlands!
Adams is, for me, the best agency ever. The personnel is really professional and they are really efficient: ready to answer your questions and solve your doubts, all with a human and kind touch. I would suggest them to anyone looking for a career. Thanks to them I have found a great job, thanks, Adams!
Working with Adams has been a real pleasure, they are as reliable as they are friendly. With their help I have found a great job within less than one week - that should speak for itself. I can only recommend them to every expat. For me, they represent everything that a recruitment agency should.
