Company – Recruitment

Métier, established in Zwolle, the Netherlands, is an agency specialized in recruitment & selection, personnel development and process improvement. Lately Métier has grown significant by opening offices in Zwolle, Groningen, Almelo en Barneveld

Since its foundation in 2001, Métier has built up a sizeable clientele with technically-oriented, internationally-operating, privately-owned companies. Our clients’ activities include the following areas:

Thinking along with our clients from a point of engagement and expertise is our strength. For us, this is the only way to achieve the right ‘click’ together and to be able to be of service to candidates, clients and their employees. A people-oriented approach and informal contact with people at every level within an organization are vital to us.

Examples of succesfull assignments are the recruitment of a director for the Bulgarian production site of a manufacturer of rubber shaped articles and recruiting a location manager for a German supplier for roofing contractors.


Ingobert, owner of Métier B.V., grew up in Havelte and studied business economics at the University of Groningen, majoring in labor in the production process. After his studies he gained experience in recruitment and selection as an intermediary in the temporary employment industry. Furthermore, he worked as a business consultant for an accountants’ firm and as a consultant for starting entrepreneurs in Amsterdam. On 10 September 2001, Ingobert opened the doors to his own agency in Zwolle: Métier B.V. Within Métier, Ingobert’s main task is the recruitment of export managers, controllers, dealer managers and technical managers.

In addition to Dutch, Ingobert also speaks excellent English and German and he has reasonable knowledge of French and Spanish. During and after his studies, Ingobert spent a considerable amount of time abroad working and studying. His work/holidays take Ingobert to other European countries on a regular basis. In 2013 he went on a trade mission to the Ukraine (Kiev and Kharkov) and to Germany (Berlin). In January 2014 he went on trade mission to Estonia (Tallinn and Tartu). In April 2014, Ingobert went to the Krakow region (Poland) and visited a number of organisations there.
