Tell us about your financial staffing needs

Solve the shortage of junior financials with the best candidates from all over Europe.

Finding the right financial candidate is not so easy. At least, not in the Netherlands. In Europe, many talented young financials are looking for a starting level position. We select these motivated graduates for a finance position in the Netherlands. We recruit locally and in-person through our network in top universities and business schools. Because we only want the best.

How we select the best junior financials

When it comes to selecting the best junior financials, we believe that you have to look at the bigger picture. Next to testing their financial skills, we also test our candidates on soft skills, level of speaking and writing English, and Excel skills.

Together, we try to find out how we can support and improve them during the development program.

Criteria for a starting position

All of our junior controllers, analysts, and process consultants all meet the following criteria:

  • A degree in Business Administration, Finance, Accounting, or IT.
  • Excellent grades at a well-known University or Business School.
  • 0-3 years of work experience.
  • Proficient in English at min. B2-level.
  • Proven soft skills through extracurricular activities and sports.

How we can empower your team! 

Financial talents become finance trainees and take a position in your organization for 1-3 years. A great way to fill in your entry-level positions, such as:

  • Junior Financial/Business/Project Controller
  • Junior Finance Consultant
  • Junior Process Consultant
  • Junior Business Consultant

Training & Development

During our Development Program, an experienced senior financial from Firstleap will coach them. Also, we’ll provide a broad range of training:

  • CMA certification
  • English language course (C1 level)
  • Finance courses
  • Tooling
  • Professional development
  • Personal effectiveness

A permanent position

What happens if the financial talent is such a valuable addition to your team, that you want to offer him or her a permanent job? After the Development Program, we’ll help you with this process as well.
