How can The Music Recruiters help me in finding a job?

The Music Recruiters works for a large and varied database of clients within the music and entertainment sector. We are commissioned to look for new employees with a specific profile. If your profile fits our clients’ needs, you could be the person we are looking for.

If you are interested in a position that you have seen on our channels you can respond to the job post. We will then let you know as soon as possible if we see the match and if we would like to schedule an introductory interview with you. You can also leave your details with us with a view to the future. By sending us your resume, and additional information such as your ambitions, job requirements, salary indication and availability, we can store your data. As soon as there is a suitable job opening, we will contact you.

We also advise you to keep a close eye on our website and social media. Some job openings for the Dutch market are only advertised through our network. In that case, you will be in direct contact with the client.

N.B. The market is constantly evolving and the type of profiles companies are looking for varies from moment to moment. We can therefore not guarantee that we will actually find a job for you if you register with us. Of course we do our very best!

What kind of functions does The Music Recruiters mediate for?

We mediate for all categories of positions within the music and entertainment industry: from Marketing & Sales to Streaming & Distribution and from A&R/Creative to HR, Finance & Legal.

We also mediate for music and entertainment-related functions in other industries. Think for example of a role as Artist & Brand Relations Manager at a producer of energy drinks, or a Sales Manager at a software company that creates digital solutions for the events sector.

We are active at all levels (from junior to senior) and mediate for both permanent and freelance/interim positions.

How does The Music Recruiters operate?

A personal approach is of paramount importance to us. So before we introduce you as a candidate to a client, we always want to get to know you personally, or through a video call.

During this interview, we try to find out more about your experience and ambitions. We do this as objectively as possible. If at that moment there is a concrete job opening which you as a candidate are enthusiastic about and for which we also see a good match, we will introduce you to the client after the interview.

During the application process we will guide you in all aspects of the procedure. We also offer assistance in salary negotiations and can take care of these for you in full if requested.

As a candidate, do I pay for your services?

No, for a candidate our services are free of charge. Our clients pay us for finding and the mediating of the right candidates.

Why do you sometimes advertise without mentioning the name of the company in question?

In some cases, we are involved in a job opening without exclusively filling the position. This means that the client also receives applications directly and initiates the procedure himself. To ensure that candidates who have been notified of a job opening through our channels contact us first, we advertise some jobs anonymously.

What is the The Music Recruiters’ working method?

A personal approach with a view to long-term mediation is always central to us. We (always) get to know a candidate personally before we introduce him or her to a client.

During our introduction, we try to find out as much as possible what the candidate’s ambitions are and whether he/she has the right qualifications for the position in question. If we are in contact with a suitable candidate, we will introduce him or her in detail and schedule an introductory interview with the client. This of course takes place in accordance with the recruitment procedure drawn up by the client.

How much does it cost to hire The Music Recruiters?

Job Advertising in our network is available from €95,- (Dutch market only). For recruitment and selection, we calculate a market conform percentage over the annual salary in case of a successful mediation. In most cases, we work on the basis of the ‘no cure no pay’ principle.

For more information about our conditions and rates for Job Advertising, we refer to our services page.

How soon will I be able to meet with the first candidates?

This strongly depends on the complexity of the position and the circumstances of the labour market. We always do our utmost to introduce candidates from our network to our clients as quickly as possible. However, it depends on the position(s) and circumstances how quickly this is possible.

We usually get a lot of reactions to vacancies. Why should we hire a recruiter?

It is of course nice to have so many responses to vacancies! It’s good in terms of employer branding.

However, this does not always mean that these are also the best candidates. We strongly believe that good hiring management can take a department to a higher level. In many cases, this requires, in addition to the active job seekers who themselves respond to a position, also to come into contact with passive job seekers. These are candidates who already have a job and who do not immediately respond to vacancies. We actively look for these candidates and inspire them to make the switch.
