SIRE Life Sciences® is far from a traditional recruitment agency. The company has developed Europe’s most comprehensive, detailed and dynamic network of life sciences companies and highly skilled talent. SIRE Life Sciences® synchronizes with the fast pace of life sciences industries by developing unique technological systems that push the boundaries of recruitment potential.

Using these tools, SIRE Life Sciences® has developed the concept of Reverse Recruitment©. This approach reduces time-frames and improves talent acquisition for companies by mapping the entire market in-depth before employment needs arise.

SIRE Life Sciences® has set itself apart from the competition by using the latest technology to reduce risk and add assurance to the recruitment process, rather than simply relying on guesswork.



Necessity is the mother of invention. So it was that Jan-Willem Broekhoven and Jordy Stravers began striving to optimize recruitment by founding SIRE Life Sciences® in the summer of 2012. This name was chosen as a mission statement. SIRE® would exclusively provide intelligent, authoritative recruitment services, based on rich information and unbridled client support.

Through long days and sleepless nights, the team used their modest office on the Keizersgracht to apply scientific, technology-driven methodologies to augment traditional recruitment processes. What they produced was – and remains – completely unique within the recruitment landscape. SIRE® has mapped out all key players and talent across the employment landscape.

At the heart of this is the belief that recruitment goes far beyond the placement of candidates. Effective employment solutions need to put the right person in the relevant place every time, using advanced systems to streamline costs and time-frames for clients.

The founders: Jordy Stravers and Jan-Willem Broekhoven
