Absolutely. Our services are completely free for you, the candidate. No hidden charges or costs! If you secure a job through our platform, we receive a fee from the company – your success is our success.


2. Can I cancel the process at any time?

Certainly. We find it very important that you’re highly comfortable with your future job, company and colleagues. If at any stage you feel that any of those factors isn’t the right fit for you, please do not hesitate to let us know.


3. How soon will I hear back about my application?

We strive to update you within 2 weeks after the application. Please note that response times may vary as we collaborate with different companies. If you haven’t heard from us within this time frame, feel free to reach out for an update.


4. I’m not sure if I can apply with my current skills

Navigating job opportunities can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially in the IT landscape. If you’re uncertain whether your (IT) skill set aligns with the job requirements, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to discuss your specific case and guide you through the process.


5. Can I work from outside NL?

This depends on the specific vacancy, but most vacancies require you to visit their office in the Netherlands at least once a month. Typically, the job is based in the Netherlands, but hybrid remote work is often a possibility. Should you have queries regarding a particular position, feel free to inquire about its remote working arrangements.
