The Music Recruiters mediates professionals for companies in the music, media, and entertainment sectors. Our (international) network primarily consists of candidates at the mid to management level.

As sector specialists, we always support clients in the most professional, sustainable, and targeted manner. We are aware of market developments and know exactly what is important for organizations in these vibrant sectors. We connect with professionals who can elevate the role to that next level.

Our approach is hybrid. We combine traditional values such as comprehensive intake and a personal approach with modern tools & efficiency. Our formula includes activating our database, smart use of digital marketing, referral recruitment, and proactive (digital) headhunting. With our formula, a success rate of 80-100% can be expected.

Clients such as Ziggo Dome, MOJO Concerts, Spinnin’ Records, Gibson Brands, Warner Music Group, and Believe Music rely on our services.

The Music Recruiters is based in the Netherlands but operates in all markets with a high English proficiency, such as Germany, United Kingdom and the United States. 


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.


For mediations in employment we operate with a retained placement fee of 21-25% per successful mediation, accompanied by a start-up fee at the beginning. The deposit is deducted from the final placement fee. The placement fee is calculated based on the gross annual full time salary, including selected benefits.

Because we trust in the quality of our services, a guarantee policy is always included in our terms.

We offer both non-exclusive and exclusive recruitment processes. In certain cases, we work exclusively for an agreed-upon period. This allows us to work towards the objective efficiently and maximize the chance of success.

Rates upon request


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.
