Managing Director, Belgium
Our people are the foundation of our success. We pay a lot of attention to the type of people we hire to become recruitment experts. And no, experience in recruitment is certainly not a necessity. We are looking for determined, confident and passionate people who want to be very successful in a fast, competitive environment.
I started here as a consultant in one of our former offices. I had no experience, but I had the drive to get the best out of myself. Hays grew very quickly and thanks to my hard work and dedication I could grow internally. It has been a fantastic rollercoaster and since day 1 I think it’s great to work for Hays.
Do you also feel the inspired to get started in recruitment? Then come and visit Hays, you will receive a solid education and we provide the right coaching so that you too can grow in your job. Several directors within our management team started as a consultant and have a wealth of experience in all aspects of our activity.
Our sector is also evolving very rapidly. The traditional recruitment model has been transformed into a new model. Thanks to the power of technology, data science and personalized communication on a large scale, we can reach candidates in new ways. We place this ‘Find & Engage’ model at the center of our activity – there has never been a more exciting time to come and work at Hays.

years of experience
filled jobs per day
As an expert in the business, we are market leader in the UK, Australia and Europe. We recruit for our clients in the public and private sectors throughout Belgium. This can involve permanent or temporary jobs, interim or contracting missions.
In Belgium, we work from eight offices with 200 specialised consultants. Each consultant is an expert within a particular professional field, one of our 17 divisions. In order to find the right match, we work across the borders of our region and our specialisation and we share our knowledge, ideas and experiences with one another.
In Belgium, Hays has four sub brands:
Our consultants are supported by enthusiastic back-office teams in IT, Legal, Finance, Administration, Sales, Marketing and HR.
A career at Hays is unlike any other. At Hays we are experts in recruiting qualified professionals. We power the world of work by understanding the needs of our clients and candidates, at local and international level. We have a broad expertise in various industries and sectors.
Powering the world of work with our recruitment expertise.
As a people business, we place great importance on working together with the right individuals. Ones who have their own unique mix of competences and experiences and who wish to further develop themselves together with us. Furthermore, we like to invest in competence-oriented tools in order to support our own employees and to help them in their further career development.
Investing in your future, we do it every day.
Day after day we bring candidates and companies closer together. In this way, we help candidates develop their careers while we help companies find the right talent. As a specialist recruiter, our goal is to find the perfect match between both.
Specialist recruitment means that our consultants have developed expert knowledge within several specific market sectors, such as Accountancy, IT, Construction or Retail. Within the sector, they also specialise in region, contract type or experience level.
After a state-of-the-art training spread over a number of weeks and a training throughout the year, they use their expertise and market knowledge to find this perfect match.
Hays creates a working environment full of enterprising colleagues. Concretely, this means that very soon after starting their career at Hays, consultants manage their own business with their own portfolio of clients and candidates. They have daily contact with senior managers and decision makers and indirectly help define the direction of a company. They conduct an accurate needs analysis of our candidates and clients and they stimulate the development of valuable and enduring professional relationships.
That is how we place the right person in the right place, and that is our mission.
We aim to achieve our mission on the basis of our corporate values. Our behaviour, presentation and communication are inspired by our values.
As a results-driven company, our energy makes us ambitious for our people, clients and candidates because we know the positive impact recruiting can have in their lives.
Hays has a professional attitude in all areas. As experts across many sectors and professions, our professional know-how and unique understanding of the market is shared with our clients, candidates and global network.
Passionate about people
We are a people business so we're passionate about creating valuable relationships with everyone we work with. Our enthusiasm must be a source of inspiration for the life and work of people, allowing candidates and clients to be all they can be.
