For Employers


Nowadays, it is exceedingly difficult to recruit engineers for technical positions in the Netherlands. By playing fair and applying thorough technical know-how, we help you find solid candidates for jobs in oil, gas & energy, marine & offshore, data center & facilities and civil & infrastructure sectors.

We're Family

As a family, we value honesty and dedication. This focus has enabled us to grow a strong network of like-minded clients and candidates.

We're Specialized

With engineers in our recruitment team, we know exactly what companies and candidates are looking for and recruit accordingly.

We're Experienced

With ‘out of the box’ recruitment, we are able to make unexpected (and highly appreciated) matches between candidate and client.

Tight labor markets

Regardless of industry, the high demand for engineers has put high pressure on HR departments. And once a candidate is found, it takes technical know-how to make a proper assessment.

Outsource the recruitment to us:

  • Due to our international outlook and large database …
  • …we have the capacity to find excellent candidates.
  • We have the technical background to make reliable assessments.
  • One consultant personally attends to both client and candidate.

Permanent, temporary and temp-to-perm

Sometimes, Dutch is required. For example when frequent client contact is part of the job. But when English suffices, or is preferable, we will expand our search for good engineers abroad. We offer recruitment solutions for permanent, temporary and temp-to-perm jobs:

  • Employees are hired for the duration of the project.
  • Project extended or finished early? We look after your team.
  • No needless secondment costs: direct employment after 1 year.

Recruitment process and relocation

We will arrange everything necessary for you to find your new employee:

  • We will make a preselection of suitable candidates.
  • We will present the candidates, including a fee.
  • We will arrange an interview with the candidate(s) of your choice.

Upon request, we can arrange the paperwork and the relocation from anywhere in the world to the Netherlands. Read more about The Relocation Company.


Since 2003, we have helped over 1.000 engineers to take the next step in their careers. For some in a new industry, for some in a new position and for some in a new country. We call them our extended family members and this is what they have to say about us:

“Bij Fairplay denken ze out of the box. Ze zien je kwaliteiten in je CV en matchen die perfect met de uitvraag van de klant. De tevredenheid van de klant over zowel mijzelf als Fairplay, heeft ervoor gezorgd dat ik binnen de organisatie bij een andere afdeling geplaatst kon worden toen mijn eerste opdracht afliep. Ik ben zeer tevreden over de dienstverlening en het directe contact met mijn accountmanager.”

Miranda Hogenbirk

Contract Manager, Waterschap Hollandse Delta

“These years working for fairplay engineering have been a very positive experience, a great team of professionals with values which are always willing to advise and share opportunities. They provide the support network you need!”
