Engineering Contracting

We speak your language

Hays is a leading expert in the brokerage of independent contractor services for client projects. Our contractors offer their expertise on the basis of a number of contract forms, including freelance contractor, highly skilled migrant, consultancy employee or, where desired, as a Hays employee seconded to your organisation. But whatever the arrangement, the foundations of our contractor services are always swift deployability, solid expertise and flexibility.

Hays forms a key link between its clients and contractors: we have an excellent international network at our disposal and are happy to advise you on your options.


Contracting via Hays: the advantages for you as a contractor

Hays works on the basis of personal relationships
We will assign one of our recruiting experts to you as a dedicated contact. You will develop a personal relationship with this expert, allowing him/her to quickly get down to business when a new assignment comes in. When assigning your contact, we will take both your professional expertise and your personality into account.

Support for new independent contractors
Did you recently start out as an independent contractor, and do you want to know more about which steps you need to take next? Which paperwork needs to be applied for, or which arrangements have been made for payrolling? Or would you like advice on how to fast-track your career? Your personal recruiting expert is happy to discuss such matters with you.

Support over the course of the assignment
Over the course of the assignment, we will remain in regular contact with both you and the client. Hays will serve as a sparring partner for both parties and will provide recommendations where required. If any issues crop up, your personal recruiting expert can serve as your first point of contact.

Direct payment
Hays is a listed global market leader in its sector. Thanks to our stable financial position, we can guarantee the swift payment of your earnings. This payment term is not affected by any supplementary payment conditions set by the client.
 
Competitive market
Interim professionals work in a highly competitive market. In-depth knowledge of the sector and the ability to take quick and decisive action are crucial for acquiring new assignments. Your Hays recruiting expert knows your market and can effectively handle the negotiations with your new client on your behalf.

Access to the Hays network
As one of the leading firms in specialist recruitment and selection, Hays has built up an outstanding client network. Our recruiting experts can introduce you to clients in a wide range of sectors throughout the Netherlands.

Enhance your CV
Working on a project basis within a variety of organisations helps you to both increase your expertise and broaden your professional experience. With each new assignment, your profile becomes even more attractive to prospective employers.

Permanent position
If you would ultimately prefer a permanent contract, you can use a temporary or project-based position to maintain or improve your specific skills in preparation for such an appointment. This will significantly increase your options on the employment market.
