We are at the top of our game. But unlike others, ACT Commodities achieves success through a uniquely people-centric approach to trading. Naturally, our recruiters are the ambassadors of this thinking and always on the lookout for like-minded candidates: down-to-earth, vibrant, ambitious and sociable.

More about the job

Are you ready for responsibility? Do you have a strong sense for spotting young talent and can you level with the millennials of this world? Are you quick at your feet and are you able to guide candidates as professionally as possible?

 

BEST OF THE BEST

Since ACT is growing tremendously, it is your job to attract new talent. You conduct thorough research into how we expand our network and give your manager input on the strategy to be followed. Which (foreign) events do we need and what do we tell candidates? On which channels do we want to create visibility and why? At which universities and at which student associations do we find the best students, and how do we optimize their candidate journey throughout our recruiting procedures?

As an International Recruiter within our team we offer you room for initiative; you are going to run your own show. You manage the entire recruitment process from beginning to end: you seek candidates, interview them and enthuse them to work for us. Are you able to make the perfect match? Then you make the job offer and conduct the negotiations. ACT grew quickly the past couple of years from start up to scale up but we never make concessions on quality. You get that and only go for the very best people. Down-to-earth, vibrant, ambitious and emphatic types. Those with a strong affinity with sales, not afraid to travel a lot and a good dose of initiative and independence to let their entrepreneurial character flourish. But always as part of the team. A bit like yourself actually.

 

PASSPORT READY?

We work hard on 'recruitment 2.0' with our recruitment team. To keep up with the rapid growth of ACT and the solid growth ambitions, a number of challenging projects are planned. For example, we implemented a new ATS (candidate database) earlier this year, our new career page is online since January! and there are many other projects pending regarding the candidate experience, the development of new selection methods and optimizing of our current sourcing channels. This really is your chance to pioneer. Do you have ideas how to improve other processes? We invite you to share your input from day one. In a working environment with thirty-five different nationalities it is almost impossible not to broaden your horizons. Together with you, we will put ACT Commodities on the map, in the Netherlands and abroad. That means you always have to have your passport ready.

 

OUR OFFER?

We are ambitious and work hard at ACT, but we have never heard of the word 'boring' here. Action, dynamism and adrenaline: you can feel the ambition and energy within our office as soon as you step inside.

Successes are celebrated and ACT is happy to share rather it is on our infamous barbecues, out of office drinks, Christmas dinners or incentives for reaching targets: these are all things you sign up for if this job suits you. But that is not everything. At ACT we strongly believe that you can perform the best if you feel good. Several days a week, an external life coach comes to the office with whom - if you feel like it - you can talk about your development, about what challenges you are up against and / or about things which you are (un) satisfied about. It generates new energy to create tools that help you get the best out of yourself in business and private life.

 

SO..

Did you finish your HBO/WO studies, preferably in the direction of HRM, Social and Organization Psychology or Business Administration? Do you preferably also have experience as a recruiter either at a corporate or agency side?
Then we are certainly open to meet you!

ACT goes the extra mile to give me the tools to become successful.

ACT’s growth strategy in physical environmental commodities is a perfect fit with my Logistics and Operations experience and my passion for renewable energy. What I really like about my work is the continuously changing environment and working with customers to create solutions so that they can keep their plants running.

 

ACT cares about training their employees and ensuring that they are reaching their potential. They go the extra mile to give me the tools I need to be successful. And when we are successful, everybody is part of the celebration. I can’t think of a better place to work hard and play hard. Last but not least, I get to experience NY with a group of coworkers who are also good friends.

Encountering new situations on a daily basis

I started working at ACT because I wanted to be in a working environment that would really allow me to grow. I certainly got what I was hoping for! Ever since I joined ACT, every day has been different, my learning curve has been very steep because of it. 

 

You learn as you go and I’ve experienced first hand that if you succeed, everybody is genuinely happy for you. Everybody is willing to work hard and make the best out of every day. We are target driven, we are ambitious but always together as a team. That means when a target is accomplished, we also celebrate each other’s success. This teamspirit keeps everybody going!
