At Adams Recruitment we are looking for a Junior Recruitment Sourcer to join our Amsterdam team.

The Sourcer plays a crucial role in the recruitment process. Not all job hunters respond to open job advertisements so a Sourcer will use proactive recruitment techniques to identify, assess and engage candidates. You have to love searching and researching and have to have an interest in people to be successful. You can spend hours at a time hunting through CV sites, job boards, Linkedin etc. but the satisfaction of finding that elusive candidate far outweighs the time you have devoted.

So what are your main responsibilities?

  • You will support our Recruiters. They will brief you on the role, the candidate, the industry etc.

  • You will source for candidates on the company database as well as external job boards.

  • You will register and track candidates effectively.

  • As you build up your knowledge and experience we will expect you to have the first interaction with the candidate.

  • You will pre-qualify candidates on the telephone and support the Recruiters in setting up interviews.

  • You will also be expected to take part in any Recruitment events that we organize or attend (mainly remotely at the moment).

  • Learning about interviews

And the requirements?

What makes the perfect Sourcer? Let's use an acronym

  • Speed - We have to find that candidate quickly.

  • Opportunity - We have to sell this opportunity to them and get them hooked.

  • Unflappable - You keep calm under pressure and keep smiling.

  • Realistic - You appreciate that some time it won't work and you don't beat yourself up about it.

  • Creative - Every candidate is different. Every search is unique. Creativity is king.

  • Enthusiasm - You will love working here and your candidates will need to feel that enthusiasm when you speak with them.

  • Resilient - You don't give up. You keep on going and find different routes when the journey is a tough one.

As well as all of the above you will need:

  • Business fluency in the English language.

  • German, French, Spanish or Italian is a plus!

  • Desire to grow to a Junior Recruiter role

  • Some previous office based experience

  • Excellent researching skills.

  • Good communication skills via social platforms as well as business networking.

  • Living in the Netherlands and no restrictions on working in the Netherlands.

  • We expect you to have a Dutch address, a Dutch Bank account and a BSN number.

What’s in it for you?

  • Positive and fun working place. Initially remotely but office based as soon as lockdown relaxes.

  • A lot of learning opportunities about the Recruitment Business

  • Extensive training and development opportunities

  • A career path and growth possibilities for the future in Recruitment

  • A lot of flexibility in the workplace

  • Competitive salary package, including basic salary and the possibility of earning a monthly commission or bonus.

  • 25 holidays plus 6,5 adv days

  • Pension contribution

  • Contribution to health insurance

  • 39 hours work week.

  • Lots of great social/team events.
