How it all started
In 2000, when Bram Bosveld, Hugo de Koning and Rogier Thewessen were still at university, they were looking for a side job. They couldn’t find anything online, so they set up their own job board called StudentenWerk. Employers posted their vacancies and students applied online. It was fast, easy and direct. One day, in the office’s attic room, Bram had an employer on the phone. “Do you also do staffing?”, the employer asked. “Absolutely”, replied Bram, who then called out to the others, “Guys, we’re doing staffing now too!”. A new kind of recruitment agency was born.
At the top of our game
’Just go for it’ is the approach that still defines our company today. Thanks to this mentality, StudentenWerk has grown into YoungCapital, a recruitment agency with more than 16,000 candidates working every day. We have the largest database of young candidates in Europe and are easier to find online than any other Dutch recruitment agency.
