About Newpeople 

Newpeople has been a thought leader when it comes to digital leadership for over 16 years. Using our executive search and interim solutions services, we work for organisations that are changing from ‘old to new’ and that are in different phases of digital transformation. We also work for ‘pure players’ that started out digitally and that have growth as a core point of focus (start-ups, scale-ups and grown-ups). In the digital domain, we work on commercial as well as technical senior and executive positions. We also help fill digital, supervisory positions.

We are here to drive change by humanizing digital transformation and growth for leaders in Europe

We inspire our clients to change their outlook and to build a sustainable future together. We do this by defining the different phases of digital maturity and by matching these to the right kind of leadership and to the relevant teams. We have developed a model of leadership for this. We work for great organisations that have digital transformation or digital growth as a core point of focus such as but not limited to: Swapfiets, Booking, Ballast Nedam, Ring, MyWheels, Egeria, TakeAway, Nordian Capital, Intergamma, Felyx, KPN and Catawiki. 

We are the proud founders of, amongst other things, the Digital Transformers Awards, Online Tuesday and the Newpeople Executive Study Tour to, for example, Silicon Valley, China, Israel, Japan and Korea. In this way we unite knowledge so that we are always aware of trends and developments in the market.

About the Consultant Executive Search job position

As the Consultant Executive Search, together with the Director Executive Search, you are responsible for:

  • The whole executive search process from A-Z which includes doing desk research, putting together a search profile, searching for and approaching potential candidates and making a longlist.

We don’t advertise our running assignments, but rather exclusively approach potential candidates personally;
  • Conducting in-depth interviews with the best candidates in the market to gauge what their desires and needs are. You advise them on the next steps in their career and you test what kind of organisation best matches their leadership style. This means you get an excellent insight into the job market and the culture at many of our clients’ companies. It also means that you get into contact with professionals and leaders at the highest level. By constantly talking to candidates and clients, you become a full-fledged conversation partner at a managerial and C-level in the digital domain and you know what is happening in the market;
  • As the Consultant Executive Search, you work on several different assignments at the same time. You coordinate the whole process and ensure that there is progress in every assignment. You work together with other Consultants and Directors to initiate further business development.
