- Do you conisder yourself to be a star at market-mapping, hunting & lead-generation?

- Want to work in a diverse and fun team, with a start-up vibe, but also part of an Internationally-known Organisation?

About Us:

Denovo is an international market-leader, recruiting to the vibrant Technology and Digital markets across Europe and we are passionate about the seamless delivery of Sales, Marketing and Executive-Level professionals. We have grown from strength-to-strength on a year-to-year basis, including a strategic move into one of Europe's coolest hubs - Amsterdam - with scope to expand further!

Our People bring with them a success-story from both Recruitment and Business-to-Business Sales, in a range of technical industries including software, Hardware & Electronics, Infrastructure, E-Commerce and Online-marketing to name a few!

We are currently looking to add an energetic, ambitious professional to be part of our Business Development team, who will hunt for new clients in line with our vertical market-focus, qualify job leads, before working with the Consultant team to introduce them to the client. This is a fast-paced role where you will support a team of up to 3 Consultants at one time, manage your time effectively and spend the majority of time cold-calling and keeping in touch with repeat clients.

On offer for you...

  • The chance to join an experienced, successful but fun-loving team of varying nationalities;
  • As a growing team, we still have a start-up vibe, so there is the freedom and autonomy to influence and do the job the way you want to!
  • A generous market-leading salary with excellent commission, incentives for hitting certain KPI's and monthly team-building activities;
  • An excellent market-reputation and repeat/incoming business-requests from market-leaders in SaaS, E-Commerce, Cloud and Electronics - not bad for a 1 year old business!
  • A beautiful canal-facing office, all modern tools-of-the-trade and the cities coolest areas on your doorstep every day!


  • It is essential that you speak both Dutch and English, fluently.
  • Furthermore it would be useful (but not necessary) if you are fluent in another language - German, French, Italian, Spanish or a Scandinavian language.
  • You must have 2-3 years B2B Sales experience, preferably in lead-generation and acquisition for example;
  • A minimum of 1 year experience in Recruitment, either as a Business Development, or 360 recruitment Consultant;
  • Comfortable with cold-calling on a daily basis, sending proposals and recruitment tenders to Clients, maintaining a proper record on the company CRM system;
  • You are a good commercial communicator, confident with communicating to C-Level and are very-well organised;
  • Confident in supporting a Consultant team of 3 and you can manage your time effectively;
  • You are a self-starter, money-motivated and a key team-player!
  • As standard, you will have a great personality, an interesting party-piece and as standard you get on well within a diverse team!
  • You must be based in the Netherlands and willing to travel as the role dictates - however this role will mostly be based in the Amsterdam HQ
