Project Staffing & Talent Sourcing

Maximum Flexibility

The quality of your staff is key to the company’s success. It is essential to be critical and selective on hiring staff. Talented employees, both fixed or flex, working in the right place with inspiring guidance and exiting business objectives deliver measurable valuable results. The whole idea of being successful as a business is based upon working together; one workforce, one team. The added value in skills and competences is more important than the type of agreement. One workforce, it means regardless of whether you are in permanent employment or if you have been temporarily hired, the results count. More and more we realize that flexibility in this rapidly changing technology driven market is the most important success factor.

ACTRA NEXT is specialized in sourcing highly talented people for technology customers. People that match background, personal ambitions and Mindset and people we proudly represent as Talent Agency. As Talent Agency we work in the first place for the talents we accompany in getting the best out of their careers. It is their career, they decide. We advice, coach and train them to make the most our of their given talent. As company you get the best value for your money when a talent fits in every way, likes the assignment and is aware that this assignment adds value to his/her set of experience for a next career step. The type of agreement will never be forced by us. Whether the talent start as contractor, as employee or any combination of these, it is okay for ACTRA NEXT as long as the talent and the hiring company both agree.

Career Counseling

About your strenghts & Being happy

Understanding what you do best is essential to succeeding professionally. But often we are unclear on our own strengths. Finding yourself standing on a crossroad is more than moment in time. It's the moment that you can ask yourself; "Am I happy?". Am I happy with the life I lead? Are there possibilities for increasing my happiness in life so that I can get more out of myself? Career Counseling by ACTRA NEXT is not just about your career, it's also about you as a person. Who are you, what makes you really happy.

If you do what you are good at and it is great fun then you can excel in it. Identifying your strengths. Discover your natural gifts, your passions, your skills, and your greatest abilities. We can help you focus on the strenghts (and what you should avoid). We help you clarify if your current job is a fit and what you can do to address a mismatch.
