Privacy Policy

At Doghouse Recruitment, with registered address on Brouwersgracht 286 in Amsterdam, we bring the human aspect back into recruitment. We have seen a recruitment market that is dominated by short win CV pushers and know that by providing good personal service, we can make the difference. The difference between being treated like a number or appreciated as a person. So, after a solid number of years in recruitment, we decided to create our own path and in 2015 opened our doors as Doghouse Recruitment.

We do everything we can to protect your privacy and treat your data correctly and right. Doghouse is specialized in the recruitment of temporary and permanent IT professionals.
