Maureen Adam

Co-owner and Executive Director

Maureen Adam was born in the North of the UK in a family of 6 children. She studied Sociology and Social Psychology at the University of Bradford and after graduating moved to London where she worked for a recruitment agency for 4 years. Eager to gain international experience, Maureen decided to move to Hong Kong where she worked for different recruitment companies including the Executive Recruitment department of Deloitte.

After taking a break and travelling through Asia and southern Africa for 8 months, Maureen came to the Netherlands in 1991. Initially, she worked for an IT recruitment agency, but in 1997 she started her own business – Adams Multilingual Recruitment. Back then, the Netherlands was just starting to be more international and not many agencies were orientated toward international candidates. Maureen also noticed that there is a room for improvement of services that recruitment agencies offer, both to candidates and clients. There was a space for a new and fresh recruitment company and that is how Adams was born.

Today, Adams Multilingual Recruitment has been in business for over two decades. Maureen takes great pride in building and working with an amazing, dedicated and motivated team who strive to provide only the highest-quality service. All team members are internationals who have a thorough understanding of candidates and what it means to be an expat. At the same time, each and every consultant aims to build strong and long-lasting partnerships with clients not only by providing top quality job seekers but also by providing market information and recruitment advice. All this has helped Adams to establish an impressive reputation and becomes one of the top international recruitment agencies in the Netherlands.

In her free time, Maureen enjoys spending time with her family and friends, visiting theatre, concerts and taking long walks. She also enjoys singing and is a proud member of a pop choir.
