// what we do

we know the market inside out

STAR operates in the sectors where society’s struggle with sustainability is being won. The energy transition is in full swing, wind farms are under construction, hydrogen infrastructure is expanding and traditional industries are becoming cleaner.

We have a seat at the table with the leading companies who work on the most prestigious projects. Even when it’s still a mere idea, we share our staffing expertise and contribute to the project’s ultimate objective. And success. For success depends in no small part on the people who provide the means.

// our vision

Always one step ahead

Full speed ahead · Full speed ahead ·

STAR’s strength lies in bringing together client, project and specialist.

Our personal involvement means that we know what’s going on. We work for market leaders in all the technology sectors and maintain warm relationships with more than 45,000 professionals. We understand their skill sets, what they seek from a next challenge – and we promote both.

STAR is uniquely placed to command a broad overview; to look inside from without and identify not just demands, but needs: the next assignment for a specialist; the best specialist for an assignment.

Winning solutions calls for STAR players.

// Who we are

Driven and Involved

Since our inception in 2001, STAR has brought together the best specialists, most challenging projects and interesting clients. We’ve made quite a name for ourselves in the petrochemical industry and energy sector, and we branched out into life sciences, offshore and infrastructure in the meantime. Wherever there are technological challenges, STAR is involved, helping clients find the people to bring projects to fruition and success.

We are market leaders in the Netherlands and Belgium, and have been forging a presence in Germany since 2016. Based at our head offices in Moerdijk (NL) and a further 8 offices, our consultants are close to the action as Europe’s major projects unfold and progress. We maintain excellent relationships with more than 45,000 specialists and thanks to our discipline-oriented approach, 90% of requests are fulfilled with feet on the ground within 48 hours.

It’s an approach that’s typical of STAR: close personal involvement to deliver real added value. With STAR, you are always guaranteed full speed ahead.
