What you'll be doing

New challenges require new people. As Corporate IT Recruiter for SIDN and Connectis, it'll be your job to bring in those people.

The work requires a strategic approach, so you'll excel at planning and organising. You'll also have the strong communication skills needed to convince even the most cautious IT people that a switch to SIDN or Connectis makes sense. You enjoy learning and you learn quickly, always thinking outside the box. Most of all, you're able get into the mindset of your target group, speak their language and develop your own vision of the jobs market. Those strengths are the product of:

  • Higher vocational training specialising in HRM, or higher academic education
  • At least two years' experience as a (corporate) recruiter, agency recruiter or HR consultant specialising in IT
  • Good understanding of how to use social media for recruitment
  • Experience of building and maintaining networks and relationships

About us

SIDN, in full the Foundation for Internet Domain Registration in the Netherlands, is an independent organisation that manages the .nl domain. In 2017, we joined forces with Connectis to reinforce the market for digital identities as well.Connectis supplies software and ID tokens for secure access to public and private services. There's more to domain name registration and secure log-ins than you might expect. We therefore have a team of 150 people dedicated to ensuring that the Dutch internet is as secure and trustworthy as possible. Some are based in Arnhem, others in Rotterdam.

Take a look at the missions and visions of SIDN and Connectis for a fuller picture of who we are and what we stand for. At SIDN and Connectis, you'll see more jeans and tee-shirts than sharp suits. It's a setting where you can be yourself. And there's always something going on: family days, Christmas dinners, sports days, barbecues and even weekends away together. Join in or do your own thing; it's fine either way. Maybe we'll see you soon?
