London and Amsterdam, 1 March 2021 – Salt, a global, award-winning digital recruitment agency is delighted to announce the opening of a new office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands as it continues its European expansion.
The move comes as Salt continues to expand its service offering to technology and digital hubs, to better serve their international client base within digitalization and digital transformation strategies post-Brexit. Currently, with offices in locations including Singapore, New Zealand, New York, London and Dubai, the new office marks Salt’s 13th location.
While the global pandemic put a lot of recruitment plans on pause for many, 2020 did not stunt growth for Salt, as the business expanded its reach to include Austin, Cape Town and Johannesburg as new locations.
With Amsterdam and many cities in the Netherlands being a hotspot for innovative technology and IT businesses, start-ups and global corporations, Salt’s presence in the country will better position the recruitment agency to meet and service the needs of existing and potential business partners and further develop their relations with local teams.
Elliot Dell, CEO of Salt comments: “The nature of our business means that it is important that we are on the ground to be able to assist our customers. Our vision is to create futures globally, assisting businesses with their digital goals and helping candidates develop their careers.
This new office location, which is situated in the north of Amsterdam, will allow Salt to offer expertise across the Creative, Digital Marketing and Technical sectors and further immerse ourselves into the local compliance structures required when delivering large project teams.
Our global presence and network combined with a local focus and understanding of the markets we operate in will greatly benefit our customers as we expand into the country.”
The expansion will be led by Salt’s local Business Development Director, Joël Bennett who has extensive experience delivering recruitment solutions to companies in the Netherlands including across the FMCG, Oil & Gas, Technology, Health, Fashion and Automotive industries. Joël will be working closely alongside Tim Harlow, Salt’s Chief Commercial Officer as the business breaks into Europe.
Tim Harlow, Salt’s Chief Commercial Officer adds, “This is a really exciting venture for Salt. Our clients have been partnering with us remotely for some time now through this remote working environment, yet we look forward to the time when we can again meet with our contacts and enjoy the benefits of working together locally across international projects.
Supported by our Dutch-speaking teams, we plan to help businesses with their hiring strategies, whether that is businesses who are scaling up, looking to hire multiple professionals, or are focussed on rapid growth in the Dutch and global economies.
We firmly believe this is a demonstration of our commitment to developing a strong European business which, post-Brexit, offers a useful combination of on-site or off-site solutions backed up by our network of office locations across all continents.”
