KLA-Tencor, one of the largest companies in the chip industry, is actively recruiting staff in the Netherlands. The expectation is that more than 40 technicians will be recruited in particular in the Eindhoven region. To this end, a contract was signed this week with QSXL, which specializes in the recruitment of talented employees in the Science, Technology / ICT and Engineering and Mathematics sectors.
Paul Kroeze, CEO of QSXL: "At the moment KLA-Tencor is already struggling with a considerable shortage of specialized technically trained employees with experience in the semiconductor industry. The expectation in the US is that in 2020 only 30% of all jobs in these beta sectors can be filled. Hence the request to look for suitable personnel in the Netherlands. "
He continues: "QSXL will focus on the Dutch labor market where many experienced technicians from this sector work. That we then focus on the Brainport Eindhoven is logical. Now it is so that technicians are sometimes quite difficult to move. But with good terms of employment and the opportunity to work in the US, we believe that it must be possible to get 40 technicians to work with Dutch companies. "
Data Driven Hiring
QSXL is a strategic partner that makes use of the 'Data Driven Hiring' method. The entire search process is based on data and facts. Kroeze: "Thanks to self-developed methods and techniques, we are able to bring companies into contact with scarce target groups. In addition to our labor market analyzes, we use our international search centers. Based on smart search algorithms passive candidates are found online, approached and attracted. This allows us to select candidates who can not be found in the regular (online) databases and who are interested in a job at KLA-Tencor. "
