"Working with Shelli was a refreshing experience! Up until I was introduced to Shelli I was always reluctant to work with recruiters because of the usual stigma of recruiters. But when I first started to talk to Shelli she made it clear she didn't have 'a few candidates that were perfect for us' because she had never met us and she wanted to know more about us first before she would engage her network of possible candidates. In our talks we went through a very thorough process of identifying business needs, business quirks (yes we have some) and candidate profile before looking at technical profiles and technical requirements. This helped Shelli be very focussed in her search and ensured we didn't waste time interviewing candidates that did not meet our (interpersonal) requirements or expectations. We would hire about 2% of the people we interviewed. Shelli broke that number because her candidates were spot on. The reason for this is that it is not just about putting the right candidate in front of the employer but she actually takes the time to understand the business needs, business challenges and the team she is recruiting for even to the point where she would not introduce candidates until certain business challenges were resolved. This allowed us to build a relation on trust and made it easy to ask for help in recruiting for long term goals but also fixing instant recruitment needs. Working with Shelli is not about just getting that next staff member in but partnering on a strategic level to fulfill HR and business requirements. Would I work with Shelli again in my next venturers? 100% yes!"

What people are saying about us

  • I have done business with Shelli for several years now and must say that she really stands out from most of the other recruiters I know. Shelli is very much committed to deliver the best candidate, communicates proactively and has proved to be flexible when needed. A highly recommendable person to work with.

    Bart Thijs
  • I've come to know Shelli as a highly skilled and professional recruiter. Somehow she manages to find the right profiles for my BI and Datawarehouse opportunities. And she is fast. She spends a lot of time interviewing the candidates herself even before she presents them to me. This method improves the chance for success, without flooding me with profiles. She is a nice person to talk to and to have lunch with.

    Rene Kuipers
  • Shelli is a motivated expert in her field, she is an honest person with a very strong commitment to help search and match for a next step in your career. Shelli is service oriented, has an extensive skill set and a great network. I recommend Shelli to anyone who is looking for a new challenge in IT.

    Jasper Boerkel
  • Being approached by many over-eager headhunters in this field I was about to brush off Shelli thinking she was the same, but I'm glad that I didn't, because I was wrong. Shelli stands out as the first headhunter to ever approach me in such a friendly and professional manner, who took the time to actually listen to what I was looking for in a job and tried to help me find it. Shelli helped me get my current position, a job which surpasses my last position in many ways. Highly recommended.

    Aage Ten Hengel
  • Demand far exceeds supply for high quality professionals within the IT sector. Not only is Shelli Gafan able to connect to possible candidates on a personal level, she is also highly capable in understanding our DNA as a company. She is well tapped into the relevant communities within the Netherlands, which is admirable for a UK based company.

    Patrick Jansen van Doorn
  • Shelli has helped me in finding the right place for me to continue my career. Her personal approach was very pleasant, and the clear communication was a big plus. My needs were taken very seriously, and I didn't feel like being 'just another candidate' in the pool. All in all I'm very happy with how things turned out! Thanks!

    Paul Ketelaars
  • I'm really proud to make a recommendation for Shelli. She is THE best recruiter that I've had contact with. A long term relationship is they key for her to look for the best job offer for me. I have known Shelli from 2009 and this year I was finally ready to make the next step. She always gave me all the information that I needed to make the best choice as possible! And now I am really happy with my new job. Thank you so much Shelli for making this possible!

    Rob Beeren
  • Shelli contacted me immediately after my application. I had a applied for a different role but she had one that was more suitable for my career progression. Shelli made it clear what I could expect from the company and what my focus should be in my motivation letter. Through the following interview rounds she always called me in advance to give me a heads up on what to expect and how to approach the interview. And the same day after the interview she asked me how it went and what my impression was. Through the whole application process, Shelli was more of a coach then a recruiter. That makes the difference compared to other recruitment agencies
