International recruitment company, Atlas Professionals, has expanded its network by opening a recruitment hub in Vlissingen. This decision is based on, the construction of the Borssele windfarm off the coast of the province of Zeeland, and the port of Vlissingen being a hub for transport, transshipment and assembly.
Local Employment Opportunities
There is rapid growth in the development of windfarms in the Netherlands, especially the province of Zeeland. As well as an expansion in local employment opportunities in the wind industry. The opening of the recruitment hub in Vlissingen on 19 February 2018, fits exactly with Atlas’ stance on: sharing global knowledge and experiences in providing (regional) employment.
“With our presence in Zeeland, we can make an even better contribution to clients, potential employees, established and new local training centers that focus on the wind industry”, says Joost Pellis, Manager Global Business Development. Vlissingen has a lot of knowledge and expertise, which is very valuable. Atlas would also like to contribute to this by providing jobs in the wind industry for recent graduates.
Experience in Wind
Atlas has an office in Bristol (UK) which is specialised in the wind industry and cable laying. Atlas has a track record of over 12 years in providing specialist recruitment & HR solutions for every phase of an offshore wind farm – from engineering to installation and operation. The new opened hub in Vlissingen consists of local people with local expertise, forming a vital connection between the wind industry and job availability.
