Headhunter for Scale-ups

Top of Minds is market leader in the mediation of Executives and Professionals for start & scale-ups. Often commissioned by a VC or PE investment firm, we strengthen the teams of fast-growing companies. We provide people who can perform well in a reality where certainties do not exist, and disruption is the name of the game.

The vacancies we fill include both C-level leadership roles as well as operational positions.

The power of the story

Working at a start or scale-up is not something you do for the money. At least, not in the short term. There may be a pot of gold waiting for you at the end of the rainbow, but for most professionals who choose a scale-up career, that’s not their main driving force.

It’s about the energy. The energy that is released when building a new business, with a fresh team and where all existing views can be questioned. And about the mission – often directly or indirectly linked to a social purpose.

Top of Minds is the only Executive Search agency in the Netherlands with an in-house advertising agency. Our marketers provide an attractive presentation of your mission. Our consultants then ensure that this pitch is communicated personally to the most suitable candidates in their network.

Our headhunting process

Our 3 steps towards results
  • 1. Storylining

    Great stories attract great people. Based on an extensive intake with the hiring manager and other stakeholders, we determine the essence of the recruitment message.

  • 2. Pitching

    Attractive content is the key factor in shaping the essence of the message. Our extensive network of top professionals in the Netherlands ensures that everyone relevant will know about your story.

  • 3. Selection

    Once an exhaustive longlist of interested candidates has been drawn up, we narrow it down to a shortlist with the most suited candidates. We do this by means of an objective scorecard and by conducting in-depth interviews. The top three is then taken through several selection rounds within your organisation, after which we facilitate the contract negotiations with the number one candidate.
