Time to throw out traditional vacancies that will leave you none the wiser or don’t allow you to connect with the team of the hiring company.
This silhouette is designed to give you that feeling of team bounding from the get-go.
Interested in Recruitment Architects? Let’s plan a chess game virtually or at our offices, or a cool spot outdoors. If you are not a chess player, we can also have a coffee.
Bryan's origin story
When I started working in recruitment, most things were new to me since my background was in marketing. I had to learn a lot about both recruitment and IT as my target audience ranged from developers of different tech stacks to security and data professionals.
It makes my job interesting, becasue each project comes with a lot of learning, that’s something I like to do to: improve myself.
In the beginning I’ve let leadership know that I like to get involved in other things than recruitment. Luckily as a recruitment architect, l get the opportunity to get my hands dirty on both the creative aspect and on a strategical level.
From thinking along to optimize recruitment processes for better scalability to helping the client with setting up their campaigns. I can be very critical towards myself and others. So, giving them feedback on their website, their own process and such are things I don’t back down from.
Something I feel less comfortable about is giving workshops, which is part of our process as well. Thankfully, I can rely on the support of my colleagues. I don’t get pushed in something I’m not 100% ready for. I can trust on my colleagues who do have the ability to speak in front a crowd, to step up and help. That’s what I like about my team, we are complementary, and we strive towards success together.
I still have a lot to learn. Thanks to my clients, co-workers and leadership team I can do it at my own pace. That way I enjoy working for/with them. Soon I’ll start mentoring students, interns and co-workers, I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge, but also learn from them in order to improve myself.

To us, recruitment resembles chess. We encourage thinking several moves ahead. Nice to know: chess is a shared hobby in our Recruitment Architects team.
