If you have any other questions, please contact us. We will gladly respond to your questions.

Currently Direct People is active only in Noord Brabant, mainly north of Eindhoven. We have job offers in and around Eindhoven, Veldhoven, Helmond, Boxtel, Tilburg, and Best.
Q2: Do you provide accommodation?
No. Currently our job offers require you to have your own accommodation in the Netherlands.
Q3: Do you have job offers for couples?
No. At Direct People we treat everybody as an individual. We look at the skills, experience, preferences, and even personality to find a best matching job. It can happen that a couple will be placed in the same company, if they both fit the profile, but we cannot guarantee that a couple will still work the same shift or get holidays in the same time.
Q4: I am looking for work. How do I get in touch with Direct People?
Check our vacancies. If you find a vacancy that you like you can directly upload your CV via the website. Our recruiter will get in touch with you within 48h if your CV matches the requirements of the vacancy.
Q4: What does a recruitment process look like?
The recruitment process starts with your CV.
You can send it directly to a recruiter or upload it in response to one of our vacancies. Your CV is very important to us. Our recruiters use it to check if you are the right candidate, so make sure your CV is up to date and complete with your current address, contact details, experience, and skills.
If your CV is a match, a recruiter will call you and invite you for an intake.
During the first interview, we will have a chance to get to know you better, give you the details of the job offer, and answer your questions. In the end, a recruiter will ask you to complete a data questionnaire, so make sure you have your BSN number, your ID, and address details ready. The first intake usually takes place in our office in Flight Forum 840, Eindhoven.
After the intake, the recruiter will send your CV to our client company.
The company will decide if they want to invite you for the second interview. For you, it is a great opportunity to learn more about the company before you decide to take the job.
If the client likes you for the job, they let us know, and we let you know.
