Attentive recruitment.

Sustainable matches drive us, not the quick deal. We've worked this way since 2012 and have made 472 matches so far.

Our values

DUUW arose from the need to be able to offer an attentive recruitment process in a market where 'the quick deal' is often central. Thanks to our extensive experience in recruitment, we know from both sides how important this process is. Our strength is in paying attention to people, the role and the context.


We work with people and that requires genuine attention. Our mission is to support growth and change in organisations, for this we go into depth with both the candidate and the client. We believe - and know - that an attentive recruitment process leads to the best results.


We are honest in the opportunities we see and we help where we can. Our goal is achieved when a candidate is genuinely satisfied in his or her new role. We donโ€™t promise a perfect match; you eventually make it yourself.


To be successful together requires commitment and determination from all parties. We see it as our responsibility to help candidates and clients make a good selection, whilst always remaining critical.

Inclusion M/F/๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

We're an intermediary and employer that offers equal chances for everybody. We work with clients that provide a working environment in which employees are treated honestly and with respect, and where discrimination in all forms is not tolerated.
