Global digital recruitment agency, Salt, has opened a new office in Amsterdam as it continues its impressive European expansion, despite the on-going uncertainty presented by Covid-19.

With Amsterdam and many cities in the Netherlands acting as a hotspot for innovative technology and IT businesses, start-ups and global corporations, Salt's presence in the country will enable it to better serve its international client base with digital transformation strategies post-Brexit.

The new office follows an incredibly successful period for Salt. Despite the global pandemic putting a lot of recruitment plans on pause, the company’s growth continued in 2020, with the business expanding its presence across locations including Austin, Cape Town and Johannesburg. And with offices spanning APAC, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the US, and UAE, the Amsterdam office marks Salt's 13th location.

Commenting on this news, Elliot Dell, CEO of Salt, says:

"The nature of our business means that it is important that we are on the ground to be able to assist our customers. Our vision is to create futures globally, supporting businesses with their digital goals and helping candidates develop their careers.

"This new office location, which is situated in the north of Amsterdam, will allow Salt to offer expertise across the Creative, Digital Marketing and Technical sectors and further immerse ourselves into the local compliance structures required when delivering large project teams.

"Our global presence and network, combined with a local focus and understanding of the markets we operate in, will greatly benefit our customers as we expand into the country."

The expansion into the Netherlands will be led by Salt's local Business Development Director, Joël Bennett who has extensive experience delivering recruitment solutions to companies in the country, including those across the FMCG, Oil & Gas, Technology, Health, Fashion and Automotive industries. Joël will be working closely alongside Tim Harlow, Salt's Chief Commercial Officer as the business breaks into Europe.

Discussing the move, Tim Harlow, says:

“This is a really exciting venture for Salt. Supported by our Dutch-speaking teams, we plan to help businesses with their hiring strategies, whether that is companies that are scaling up, looking to hire multiple professionals, or are focussed on rapid growth in the Dutch and global economies.

“We firmly believe this is a demonstration of our commitment to developing a strong European business which, post-Brexit, offers a useful combination of on-site or off-site solutions backed up by our network of office locations across all continents.”
