Erik became a specialist in recruitment within the niche of financial institutions and international trade, thanks to HR training and above all his expertise built up over many years.

With GreenshoeTalent, Erik offers his clients (job seekers and companies) full service and support, acting as sparring partner, advisor, mentor and fixer.

Why GreenshoeTalent?

The “Greenshoe clause” forms part of an initial public offering, when a company prepares to be listed on the stock exchange. It has three main objectives:

  • Matching supply and demand, so as to find the right price
  • Ensuring efficiency, so that all parties are satisfied
  • Marking-to-market

The stock exchange flotation marks a new phase in the life of a company, taking it to a higher level. During the process the company is advised by a bank which makes its expertise available and brings the two sides together (the company and investors) to create a win-win situation.

GreenshoeTalent operates on the same principles:

  • Taking candidates and organisations to a higher level
  • Matching the ambitions of the company with those of the candidate
  • Indicating the pool of available, specialist candidates and existing opportunities in the market
  • Clear commitment
