Who we are
The Music Recruiters is the latest sound in recruitment and executive search. We’ve been matching professionals with firms in the music industry, the media sector, the entertainment business and many other companies on the cusp of music, media and entertainment. Our focus is on medior to management level positions, and we’re considered specialists for most departments in the field.
TMR is plugged in.
Our company was founded on a vision — that talented people need informed and well-connected sparring partners who dare to play the more surprising notes. True talent deserves to work with people who aren’t afraid of improvising, and who’ve got the guts to create slightly dissonant but surprisingly harmonious matches.
Our vision first took shape when TMR’s founder Pieter Wolter was himself wondering what next step to take in his career. Now, some years later, his vision reaches far and wide in the fields we operate in. Record labels come to us. Music tech platforms find us. Production Agencies. Media Companies. That’s just a few examples of the businesses we help find professionals for. Through our agency, they’ve found people who share the unique DNA of companies in music, media and entertainment.
With us, the personal touch is key. We’re discreet, careful, transparent. We spend the right amount of time on our intake processes, and we always listen to all parties involved. That’s because at TMR we know that the greatest music is always a result of good collaboration.
We recruit people who rock their business.
The Music Recruiters is based in Amsterdam, but we operate globally. Read more about our services, processes and clients.
