Randstad UK

Randstad UK is the most recommended recruitment consultancy in the UK, and dominates a significant proportion of the recruitment market overseas.

Randstad was founded in 1960 by Frits Goldschmeding and Ger Daleboudt; two university students based in the Netherlands who identified a gap in the market for flexible, temporary labour. The pair believed that they could improve the labour market as a whole and shape the world of work.

Within ten years, Randstad had established branches in four countries, and the company has since grown from strength to strength to establish a strong UK market share and global presence in 20 countries.

Our sponsorships

We believe that it’s important for us to work with organisations that share our values and beliefs; quite simply because we’re stronger together – as a team.

·         We’ve partnered with VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) to help fight poverty around the world.

·         We’ve partnered with the Williams Martini Racing team because of our joint focus on team performance.

·         As part of Randstad Holdings, we helped to build the Clipper Stad Amsterdam – a grandiose ship that continues to help prepare people for the world of work

Social responsibility

Social responsibility is high on our agenda, and we believe in showing our commitment to the greater good with actions; not words.

We demonstrate this commitment through our partnership with VSO - a charity that fights poverty by matching volunteers’ skills with the needs of communities in the developing world.

We help VSO by providing support for volunteers returning to the UK through work with our Randstad UK teams, and in our support for the Ethiopia: All Children Reading programme.

We feel a degree of responsibility towards the people and communities we serve, worldwide, and as such, we focus on ensuring that everything we do is in the best interests of the people we impact.
