About Us

Founded in 2018, Belsberg is the result of a life long dream to create and develop our own business. In our previous lives, we met while both working at Oliver James. we moved to Belgium for a bit to run the business, but ultimately decided on Amsterdam. We went live in January 2019 and now are the only staffing agency in the Benelux focused purely on Digital HR / HCM. This year we are looking to grow the team exponentially. As one of the first hires on the team, you'll be able to work closely with us and potentially manage your own team very soon.

Why HCM Cloud and HR Transformation?

Working in the Change & Transformation space for over 8 years, we saw companies invested heavily in client-facing digitalization, but really lagged on their internal digitalization. This lead to us to explore market opportunities for internal digitalisation who are helping to make the internal employee experience and process smooth, digital, and scalable. We found that no other staffing agency in the Benelux is purely focused on Digital HR & HR Transformation. HR departments have often been the last in line when it comes to internal budgets for these kind of projects, so there is a massive demand. We are the #1 agency now in the Benelux focused on this market and have strong reputation in both the SAP SuccessFactors as well as the Workday space. However, we remain independent vendor-agnostic advisors can also help clients on Oracle HCM, Cornerstone OnDemand, RAET, AFAS, PeopleSoft and other systems.

Thomas van der Wal | Managing Partner

With 5+ years of experience within the change management and technology space, I now focus on placing interim HR technology consultants, project leaders and HR transformation consultants on challenging assignments. I now work on developing the business, maintaining and building relationships with our important key accounts. I also love to spend my time with friends and/or family, cooking at home for a bunch people or go out to a nice restaurant. Every week I play a few matches of squash, football or board games at home. Furthermore I like traveling and try to visit at least one new country each year. I bought an apartment together with my girlfriend in Amsterdam Oost just next to Javastraat. Belsberg is a big part of my life and I enjoy growing the company each and every day. I’m very much looking forward to speak to potential colleagues to grow the business even further!

Thomas Sassi | Managing Partner

With over 8 years of recruitment experience in the business transformation and technology field, I enjoy coaching people and getting the best out of them. I've recruited and trained over 50 recruiters over the past 8 years. Besides a heavy focus on business development and acquisition of new customers, I'm also responsible for all finance and legal matters. Recruitment can be tough sometimes with a lot of ups and downs, that's why I think humor and jokes are important around the office next to the hard work. As I'm originally from Belgium, I try to travel back to Belgium a few weekends a year to visit friends and family there. I enjoy spending time doing sports (running and cycling mostly) but also enjoy good wine and Italian food, especially when shared with friends. I live together with my girlfriend and our cat in the De Pijp neighbourhood of Amsterdam.
