Vision

Changing people's lives, one job at a time ...

Jérôme Caille - CEO - House of HR

Our Group is a fast-growing pocket multinational with a fierce entrepreneurial spirit in the field of specialist recruitment and engineering consulting, connecting people’s talents and dreams with successful companies.

Founded by Conny Vandendriessche and Philip Cracco in 1995, in Roeselare (Flanders, Belgium), Accent Jobs has secured an unparalleled growth for 20 years, with results way above those of the rest of the staffing market, thanks to an original business concept of temp to perm, combining the quality of an executive search firm with the flexibility of temporary contracts.

Accent Jobs strongly believes in the human agility of small teams, thus developing a national network of more than 250 offices, with a focus on sector and skills specialization. A few examples of our excellent performance? A 60% market share in the construction sector and a 20% market share in the SME market.

Since 2015, based on a renewed top performance on the Belgian market, our group has accelerated its development both internationally and service-wise, joining forces with Abylsen in March 2015, a young and top-performing engineering consulting company operating with more than 1,000 engineers in France, Belgium and Switzerland.

In June 2015, we partnered with Covebo, a Dutch staffing company, that has recorded high growth since its recent creation thanks to the sourcing of its 3,000 skilled workers in Poland.

More recently, we welcomed our third partner, Continu, a Dutch engineering consulting company managing more than 750 engineers and helping industrial and construction companies achieve top-notch results.

Today our group is very well positioned to implement its growth strategy based on its entrepreneurial model: developing a double service offering of specialist staffing and engineering consulting in all major European markets, while giving company founders and management the opportunity to keep a significant share in each brand’s future growth and success.

We are now jointly working on the creation of a €1 billion company by 2018 with the aim and determination of making an impact on the future of work and HR services, combining the convenience and speed of technology with the warmth and talent of human contribution.

Together we are stronger and we can change people’s lives, one job at a time, because... we love what we do!

The best is yet to come!
