From discreet (inter)national searches to fully outsourcing recruitment campaigns for specialized positions: as the specialized recruitment agency in music & entertainment, we ensure the right match. We are specialists with a background in the sector, equipped with the expertise to understand the type of person you are seeking. We focus on candidates ranging from mid-level to management and always seek specialists who not only fulfill the role but elevate it from day one.

Our formula?

Our formula involves activating our database, active headhunting, digital marketing, and referral recruitment. By working with us, you can expect a success rate of 80-100%.

Who came before you?

Clients such as Spinnin’ Records, Gibson Brands, Warner Music Group, Believe Music and several subsidiairies of Live Nation Entertainment rely on our services.


We are specialized professionals within the HR field, well-informed, and understand precisely what the roles within the sector entail.

Our database and network are extensive, well-defined, and consist of specialized professionals who can add value within an organization.

Active search (headhunting) is an essential part of how we work for almost all projects. This approach yields the best results and allows us to connect with latent available talent.

Upon request, we take the entire recruitment and selection process off the hands of our clients, saving them valuable time.

Independent selection
We always act as a neutral intermediary and provide comprehensive introductions of candidates (including profile descriptions, salary details, focal points, etc.). The “CV shifting” practice is not part of our approach.

Our work does not stop at the border. If necessary, we search abroad for the right candidate. This ensures that we always connect with the best specialists in the sector. 

Diversity is a focal point for us. We firmly believe that every candidate should have equal opportunities, and we apply this vision daily in all our activities.


We charge a commission based on a percentage over a gross annual full time salary, plus fixed emoluments. The exact percentage depends on the service-level and seniority of the role. 
To make sure we can fully focus on our assignments and fully partner up with our clients, we work on the basis of exclusivity

We charge an advance at the start of the assignment. The advance will be withdrawn from the final placement fee after an agreement has been reached with a candidate proposed by us. 
The rest of the fee is on contingency basis (no cure no pay). 

We are confident about our services. That’s why we maintain an extensive warranty period for every placement. 


We believe that successful collaboration begins with the right intake. During the intake, we discuss the must-haves, the correct cultural fit, and the objectives of the role. This allows us to draft a suitable job profile and assess feasibility. Ideally, we prefer to meet for an introduction at your office so that we can get a good sense of the culture.

Start of marketing & search campaign
We advertise the vacancy on our own media channels. In consultation with you, we also utilize a selection of specialized media channels to promote the vacancy. Then, we commence activating our network and initiating our search.

Interviews with selected candidates
We always invite potential candidates for an interview either in person or via video call. During the interview, we determine what someone is truly skilled at and what their ambitions are. To ensure neutrality, we have developed a set of objective criteria. This helps us determine if there is a genuine match for the role we are filling.

Introductions to client
If a candidate is selected by us, we introduce them to you. These introductions are detailed and include, in addition to our impression of the candidate, information about relevant experience, ambitions, salary expectations, and availability. We also discuss any potential areas of concern.

Client interviews with selected candidates
The candidates selected by us are interviewed by you. We facilitate scheduling the meetings, gather feedback from both you and the candidates, and prepare the candidates for the interviews with you. We remain closely involved throughout the entire process, ensuring that all parties stay focused.

Offer and closing
We are actively involved in closing the agreement with the preferred candidate. Even after successfully placing a candidate, we like to stay in touch. If, for any reason, a placement is not successful, our guarantee policy applies.

Our approach
Throughout the entire process, we work positively and intensively with our clients. We provide guidance where needed and offer honest and transparent feedback. We’re in this together.
