How it works

1.Job Matching

Once you have registered, our staff will match your experience and interests with available positions (full-time/contract). After successfully completing an interview and employment tests with the company, you will be offered a position. All of our services are absolutely free.


Your employment contract is with Randstad, but your place of employment is the company which interviewed you. Your salary will be paid by Randstad. With dispatch work, you can choose your hours and term of employment to fit your lifestyle.

3.Finding the right fit for you

After completing the initial dispatch period, you can continue as either a contract or permanent employee. By actually working at the company, you can see for yourself if the work is a good fit for you, as well as learn about the company before becoming either a permanent or contract employee.
