the first years

Better Life Science recruitment

When Hans Dijkstra, Jord Teeuwen and Mark Plessius founded QTC Recruitment, a specialist Life Science recruitment organisation in the Benelux, they had over ten years of international recruitment business experience. They saw that Life Science could provide different and better recruitment.

Firstly, they wanted QTC Recruitment to stand out from the generic agencies by focusing on three specific industries: Medical Devices, Biotechnology and Food (Sciences). Each industry has its specific trends and developments. They may be highly innovative and at the same time quite traditional. Driven by high quality criteria and strict laws and regulations. All of this requires a separate approach.

years of growth

Winners of the FD Gazellen Award three times in a row

In addition, a successful business model was developed that was known for its high level of service, an efficient recruitment process and transparent communication. Both for the client and for the specialist to be recruited. This approach is successful, which is why the organization almost doubled in size every year since its establishment in 2014. Others have noticed this, too. QTC Recruitments achievements include its FD Gazellen Award three times in a row.

The organisation now works for SMEs, start ups, scale ups and renowned multinationals. From junior, medior, senior, and management positions to C-level positions. It provides a complete range of services from Recruitment & Selection, Interim and Freelance mediation to RPO and Total Talent Solutions. Contacts maintained range from director-owners to branch managers, from HR managers to business directors. This is an working method that will pay off:

Extra dimension

Largest (online) Life Science network

An aspect which becomes clear in subsequent years is that Life Science professionals tend to stay in the industry once they have started working in it. These specialists are no job hoppers. This adds an extra dimension to Life Science recruitment in which knowledge of the specialism is important. It is obvious that recruitment is always about people, but in this world the network of relationships is even more important.

This knowledge and background drove the organisations huge development over the years. By now, it has created the largest (online) Life Science network in North-Western Europe. The basis is formed in the Benelux and six years after the foundation the first Scandinavian branch was opened in Copenhagen. This location provides professionals to Medicon Valley, the Life Science hub of the Nordics.
