About FairPlay Engineering

FairPlay Engineering was founded by Pieter Knibbe in 2003. Pieter, an engineer himself, originally planned to start an engineering consultancy, but soon realized that finding the right people for technical positions in the Netherlands would have to happen first. His children, Niek, Denise, and Bas, joined him at the company as he started the search for the right people.

In the early years

In the early years, the company was based at a small home office, each candidate’s future success was a huge responsibility, and each happy placement was celebrated. As the company has grown, more team members have joined, we’ve moved into larger offices, and thousands of placements have been made, but a happy match between candidate and company still brings joy to our team. Dory Knibbe, Pieter’s wife and the company’s Chief Enthusiasm Officer, still stops by occasionally to make sure of this.

Over time

Over time, the search for the right candidates expanded beyond the borders of the Netherlands. Having experienced relocation themselves, the Knibbes were committed to making sure that candidates were supported during their relocation. This led us to found The Relocation Company.

Today FairPlay is made up of an experienced and growing team of specialists in international talent who bring equal parts insight and care to the work they do, all while staying true to the values of integrity and fairness for which FairPlay has come to be known.

Our vision

We strive to create an optimal match between candidate and company, so that both sides can bring out the best in each other. We do this in an honest fashion: no rush jobs, excessive fees,
or dissatisfying solutions.
